Our Company

Since opening our doors in 2006, William Trowell (Technical Supervisor) and Joya McIntyre (Guard Supervisor) have dedicated their knowledge, experience and community pride to the growth of Selkirk Security, and both are proud of their team of Security professionals. With years of security and access control experience, they've formed Selkirk Security Services Ltd. to become the Kootenay's integrated security systems expert for mid-sized to large corporations. Focusing on customer goals and needs and providing progressive, innovative solutions has propelled Selkirk Security to it's status as a regional leader.



Technical Dept. Supervisor - WILLIAM TROWELL

William Trowell has worked continuously in the security/law enforcement field since 1987; he was also employed as a Deputy Sheriff in Prince Rupert for 6 years, but came back to security as the Sheriff's Dept did not challenge him. William is constantly challenging himself by continually taking courses in his field to expand his knowledge. His part time life has and does include the Canadian Naval Reserve where he held the rank of S/Lt, RCMP community Consultant Group in Prince Rupert as Chairman and Search and Rescue as Manager with PEP and Cox'n for the Coast Guard Auxiliary.



Guard Dept. Supervisor - JOYA MCINTYRE

Joya McIntyre has worked in the security industry since 2002. Joya is a long term resident of Trail, BC, she has a strong community minded way of thinking and is always willing to go the extra mile for the citizens of the area. Joya has built up a solid reputation for a “say it as it is” sort of person and has gained the respect of the local RCMP and Fire Dept. Joya's pride in her job shows with the never ending energy to help out her employees and the community, Selkirk Security‘s strong commitment to Customer Service is partially due to Joya's own principles.





In 2010 we expanded our coverage area by hiring a dedicated Technician for the Creston Valley , this has allowed us to better serve our current and new client base in the East Kootenays.


We also hired a Fire/Safety Technician in Grand Forks to provide professional timely service to our clients in the Grand Forks area.


It is very important to keep up with technology and Information Technology & Networking skills are more important, so we hired a dedicated IT Tech for our team in 2011, while continually keeping up with training & certification for the rest of our team.


In addition we hired a Sprinkler Fitter to join our dedicated team of Fire/Safety professionals, a professionally trained & qualified fire inspection/service team has been needed in the Kootenays for some time, and with the recent hire our team is complete.


With our New Fire Extinguisher Service Centre, Selkirk can provide all levels of professional service to our clients needs.


Also in 2011 Selkirk Security expanded its fleet to include a Bucket Truck, this truck allows us to better serve our clients for specialized security & CCTV installations and servicing.


On the back of our business cards we are proud to display “Our Vision” which is “To set new standards in providing professional Security & Safety Services in the Kootenay” and “Our Values” which is “Professionalism , Respect, Knowledge & Trust”.
