“Your guys are really terrific. When I move, I will definitely want to employ CORTAC as my security company due to the service, promptness and kindness of your security officers.

I once again have to mention the extra assistance I got from four of your officers. The outside light at my gate was no longer working and two of your guys assisted me Tuesday night – I unfortunately did not get their names – and helped me to unscrew and dismantle a rather complicated light cover.

In all my encounters with Cortac your officers have been so helpful and just truly amazing – always willing to assist and go the extra mile, or take another walk around the house when I needed reassurance.

Thank you to all at Cortac – from the friendly and helpful receptionists who always greets one warmly and with enthusiasm – without fail, to the senior head office sergeant (Josh  Isaacs) who takes the time to promptly answer emails.”

Thank you!
