Hughes Intelligence

About Us

Hughes Intelligence Canada was established in 1994 and has expanded its organization into Private Uniform Security and Special Services.

Recognizing the need in both the corporate and commercial communities for high-risk protective services, Hughes Intelligence has assembled a multi-national team of seasoned professionals to compliment its existing team of Investigative and Security Specialists.

Our Firm currently supplies security to a large number of Liquor Licensed Premises in the South Western Ontario and to large Seasonal Events like Bayfest and the Grand Bend Motorplex Venue.

Hughes Intelligence Canada has extensively expanded our services to include security for commercial and Corporate Events, Close Body Protection Services and Loss Prevention Services. Substantial steps have been taken to ensure all of our personnel receive the most current and appropriate training available, in order to provide unparalleled service in all areas of personal and physical security.

The Special Services Branch has set a long-term (five year) objective of offering training and consulting services, into what is currently offered by our Security Services.
