Our Service Area
The Southwestern Ontario (SWO) Chapter was founded in 2002 with 15 members. Since those early days the membership has consistently grown and enjoys a strong membership of just over eighty (70) professionals representing many facets of the security industry, including uniformed guarding, private investigations, security system integration, consulting, corporate security management, and government. Our membership area extends from Hamilton West to Windsor, up to and including Owen Sound and all points between. The monthly Chapter meetings are mostly hosted in London with the exception of a fall meeting in the Sarnia area and a spring meeting in the Kitchener area.
The SWO Chapter actively participates in ASIS International programs and supports our membership in their quest for learning and networking opportunities offered by ASIS and through our monthly Chapter meetings and programs.
Our Chapter has a high certified membership per capita ratio with our review programs having great success. ASIS International certifications such as the coveted CPP (Certified Protection Professional), the PSP (Physical Security Professional) and the PCI (Professional Certified Investigator) are highly recognized and re-certification is assisted by chapter events such as our monthly chapter programs and chapter sponsored webinars.
You are invited to join the Chapter each month for business networking and continuous education. You do not need to be a member to attend and we welcome members from likeminded organizations. For more information on upcoming chapter events, click on the Events tab.
