Request Additional Security

Three members of the security team walking in an alley. The word SECURITY is written on their backs.

There are a number of services that our department provides on a fee for service basis to facilitate the safety and security of you and your property. These include additional security staff for your events, card readers to secure your doors and duress stations.

Security coverage for your event on campus

Toronto Metropolitan University community members can make a request for extra security staff for their event on campus, which will be assessed for approval by our team.

Request supplementary coverage by emailing

We ask that you provide us with as much time as possible when requesting extra coverage. We can only accommodate requests with a minimum of ten business days.

How our security staff are trained

If your request is approved, we will work with you to gather the appropriate details about your supplementary coverage request to ensure that we meet your needs. Our staff are trained in basic CPR training, and are certified as Emergency Medical Responders (EMR). They also have International Trauma Life Support (ITLS) training for both the general population and pediatrics in order to support a wide variety of clientele and community members.
