Re: Pat Bodnard and Desert Security

Since 1992 and in the past ten years that I have been in the employ of ORA Restaurant (formerly Forster’s) we have exclusively used Desert Security for all of our security needs. We enlist them for a variety of events ranging from 75 guests in our lounge to 500 or 600 guests in our Convention Centre. These events vary from weddings, conventions, musical entertainment and staff parties. The services that we offer often include the sale of alcoholic beverages.

Throughout my time here at ORA I have been more than satisfied with the service that Desert Security has provided us. They are reliable, efficient and professional in every aspect of their job. I have no hesitation whatsoever, in recommending Desert Security to anyone requiring security services and I wish to provide a sound endorsement in this regard.

Should you have any further questions or inquiries on this matter please feel free to contact me.

Dear Mr. Bodnard:

I attended an event recently that was staffed by Desert City Investigations and Security Inc. and would like to mention I was extremely impressed with the job that was done. Your company is one of the most organized, perceptive and professional security companies I have come across.

I just wanted to take a moment to recognize your company’s great work and let you know that it has not gone unnoticed.

RE: Desert City Investigations and Security Inc. – Reference

This note is to acknowledge the professional and reliable service provided by Desert City Security Inc. To the Ministry for Child and Family Development in the Thompson Cariboo Region.

Desert City Investigations and Security Inc. has provided onsite security guard and patrol services in various communities within our regional operations, during the past year and a half. These services focused on providing onsite security guards at our district offices, contracted agency facilities, and staff residences up to 24 hours a day for extended periods of time. The circumstances requiring these services resulted from risk to persons and properties by high-risk and potentially dangerous individuals.

I have been particularly impressed by Patrick Bodnard and his company’s ability to respond quickly to our urgent needs for these services in various communities, usually on very short notice. Their ability to work closely with local law enforcement officers, their detailed and timely reporting, and their professional approach in handling all aspects of our needs including confidentiality have been acknowledged by both myself and our staff which they support directly.

I welcome any opportunity to discuss Desert City Investigations and Security Inc., if you have further questions.

I have recommended them several times, as they have proven to be a first class firm in our long term relationship.

We have been using the services of Desert City Investigations and Security Inc. in Kamloops BC for several years and have been very satisfied with the security they provided at our place of business. They were diligent in reporting any out of the ordinary occurrences as they were doing their nightly checks. Also they had made themselves familiar with staff and others associated with our shop. We feel they provided security that was well worthwhile.

To Whom it May Concern:

We have had extensive dealings with Desert City Investigations and Security Inc. over many years. In the writer’s practice, which is devoted almost exclusively to insurance motor vehicle work, we have found their services to be of quality and at reasonable rates.

We have further found Desert City Investigations and Security Inc. to be available to discuss any of their work and to return all communications promptly.

We would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone who may be considering the same.

To Whom it May Concern:

This will confirm, that Desert City Investigations and Security Inc. acted as security for the Adams Lake Ferry for three {3} months to November 30, 1995.

During this very tense and controversial situation I had nothing but good reports as to the conduct, appearance and diligence of the security staff. The contract was terminated only due to changes of the ship’s equipment, personnel and weather.

To Whom it May Concern,

Connaught Management Ltd is pleased to provide this letter of recommendation for Desert City Security and Investigations.

As a property management company, Connaught Management Ltd. demands high quality, professional security services and alarm response at reasonable rates. We have consistently received this level of service from Desert City Investigations and Security Inc. while maintaining our fiscal objectives for our clients.

In addition to our commercial and retail properties, Desert City has provided night patrols and alarm response to the First Bank building (BOM), the Royal Bank building, and the CIBC building. These buildings are located in the downtown of Kamloops and consequently attract some undesirables during the evening and night-time. In implementing their security program at these buildings, Desert City Investigations and Security Inc. was able to rapidly eliminate the undesirable elements and restore a positive level of security to these properties.

We feel very comfortable in recommending Desert City Investigations and Security Inc. to any property manager who is seeking professionalism and value.

Craig McIntyre, P.Bng.

To the credit of this company, when there have been minor problems associated to the provision of services, these problems have been corrected quickly and without dispute.

I rely on Desert City Investigations and Security Inc. to provide services on a timely basis, and on occasion, very short notice. Charges for service are reasonable and as quoted.

To Whom It May Concern:

The Bank has maintained a security guard during our open-to-the-public business hours for approximately the last four years. We also use their security services for after-hours alarm attendance. In this regard we have engaged the services of Desert City Investigations and Security Inc. since January 6, 2002. To date we have been very satisfied with the level of professionalism demonstrated by the guards assigned to our premise and attentiveness to our requirements by senior management.

Attention: To Whom it May Concern:

We have utilized Desert City Investigations & Security Inc.’s services over the last few months and have found them to be very professional in the handling of guest complaints. Desert City provides great customer service in their dealings with both our staff and guests. We have tried other local security companies but would highly recommend Desert City Security. We have only one regret; we did not hire Desert City Investigations and Security Inc. sooner.

General Manager (October 15th 2014), Sundance Lodge

To Whom it May Concern;

Dearborn has, for a number of years, suffered thefts from our lot without much recourse. We can‘t secure our lot without making it unfriendly to our customers, and we can’t really afford the bases and inconvenience from missing or damaged inventory. In spite of poor results from a previous security patrol company, we decided last summer to try Desert City Security Inc.

We have been pleasantly surprised.

Our losses from vandal damage and parts have dropped dramatically. We have had calls from the guards summoning us to secure buildings that we thought were locked. We have had the license plate numbers of vehicles parked where and when they shouldn’t be, turned over to police to follow up on. We have become a harder target for the casual thieves who had cost us so much that the price of the Desert City Investigations and Security Inc. patrols was worth the investment.

Today we can happily recommend Desert City Security with only one regret: we should have hired them sooner.

Mike Bacon

General Manager (October 15th 2014), Dearborn Motors Ltd.

To Whom it May Concern:

We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for the professional services and security assistance in addressing several concerns with an apartment property that was new to our portfolio. The building had been experiencing a negative reputation for several months due to several of the occupants and their behaviour. Having a security guard “on duty” for several weeks allowed us the opportunity to determine who the undesirable tenants were and to take appropriate action.

We feel that your personnel were effective, courteous and accurate in their reporting as the situation has improved over the past two months. Again, thank-you for your assistance and your professional handling of the situation.

Dear Sir,

This letter serves to confirm the fact that over the past two and a half years, your services as a private investigator have been steadily used by our staff here at the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia’s Kamloops Claim Centre.

Ted Ockenden

Claims Manager (September 28th 2014), Insurance Corporation of British Columbia

Dear Sir,

I have recently had occasion to use your firm in a number of instances. Initially you did some investigative work for me and provided me in a very timely manner with a full and comprehensive report at what I consider to be very reasonable prices. In that regard I compliment you not only for the completeness of the report but also with the expediency and courtesy in which you handled that particular matter. In another more recent incident I have asked for you to trace tor me a defendant in a motor vehicle action that we had been unsuccessful in tracing over a period of approximately one year. This, despite our best efforts through the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia as well as the motor vehicle records, on having received the information from me you were able to trace this individual to a small community in Saskatchewan and we were able to effect service upon him within two days of your work. Again, I was more than pleased with the work that you have done and I also acknowledge the reasonableness of your invoice with respect to the work done. In light of the work that you have done for me in the past I would have absolutely no hesitancy in recommending your firm to any prospective legal clientele who may require your services in an investigative matter. I also take this opportunity to wish you the very best of success in your endeavour and you can certainly count on my retaining you again in the future, should the need arise.
