Our services

MacLellan Security is a specialized security firm dedicated to helping organizations create safer and more productive working environments. Every organization faces risks to their workplace. Knowing how to minimize those risks is key to protecting your staff, clients, assets and reputation.

We provide risks assessments and training on:

recognizing indicators of potentially confrontational situations

how to de-escalate situations

developing skills to prevent violence

handling high-risk scenarios

conflict resolution

responding to active aggressor/active shooter situations


Risk assessments in the workplace are a crucial element of safety practices and policies. Workplaces can be vulnerable to threats that originate internally such as from theft or disgruntled employees or clients, as well as external threats, such as vandalism, sabotage or terrorism. Knowing where your vulnerabilities lie is the first step to mitigating the risk of these threats.

MacLellan Security engages collaboratively with your organization to identify vulnerabilities and ensure that you are minimizing the risks that can result in harm to staff and clients, decreased productivity, reputational damage and financial repercussions.

We will work with your organization to:

identify the main security risks facing your organization including ones that are associated with your managerial and operational processes

assess the likelihood of those risks occurring and their potential impact

create a plan with your organization to mitigate those risks

review your existing security features and work with your organization to strengthen them


Our goal is to assist organizations to promote and sustain safe, healthy workplaces through proactive education and training in crisis prevention, de-escalation, situational awareness techniques, and critical incidents.  

Our training includes:

preparing for potentially stressful and tense conflict situations such as dismissal and discipline meetings

situational awareness including awareness of self, body stance, reactionary gap, tunnel vision, eye contact and personal safety during a potentially volatile situation

redirecting individuals to a calmer personal space through verbal and non-verbal communication

safely disengaging from a situation which is threatening or potentially violent
