KC Security Services’ President Daniel Laprade and his company’s vehicles will be out on Halloween

A North Saanich security company will lend its eyes and ears to the community on Halloween night.

Daniel Laprade, president of KC Security Services, says as a new company he wanted to do something for the community in the security capacity — and running patrols on Halloween seemed like the perfect opportunity.

“It’s to give back,” he said. “We are giving our time that night, trying to do what we can, to be a resource for the public (on Halloween).”

He said his company’s patrol vehicles will be out in Saanich Peninsula neighbourhoods. Staff will be around to help people if they need it and to be extra eyes for local police agencies. He said he will contact local police to let them know they are out in Sidney and Central and North Saanich between 6 and 9 p.m.

Laprade added the drivers will have goodies for the kids if they approach their vehicles.
