Meet the management team, which is comprised of the two Collery brothers (Simon and Adrian) and our personnel at Footprints Security. The old fashioned family traditions and values that are instilled in the two brothers extend to the personal care and service given to every client of Footprints and their personnel.

Footprints Security has a hands-on management approach with a never-say-no attitude. Starting from the top of the management team, to every person within the organization, the well known reputation in being dedicated to providing a comprehensive and full range of security services on Vancouver Island is unsurpassed by any other security company who offers security services on Vancouver Island.

Possessing an intimate knowledge of the island market and the demographics which are unique between communities is very familiar to Footprints, being that three generations of the Collery family have been raised on the island.
