About Us

Darling Downs Security (DDS) is a local, family owned and operated business.

In 1998, Company Director Russell Davie and his family moved to Toowoomba from the Cooloola coast to take up a position managing one of three Divisional areas in the city for Chubb Mobile Services.

Over the subsequent years, DDS developed into becoming the only at first Franchisee then Sub-Contractor for Chubb Security for the Toowoomba Region; Chubb has since sold its interest in providing manpower based security, this allowed DDS to evolve into a completely local business, supplying its professional services directly to local businesses.

DDS also serves as a loyal subcontractor to clients with a national footprint and gives the same level of care and attention to these clients as to their own.

Today, DDS provides Cash Banking, Patrols and Static Guards, Staff escorts and lone worker safety checks, ATM FLR service and alarm responses throughout the Darling Downs region and has enjoyed steady business growth throughout the years. We currently run 3 patrol cars on a nightly basis for superior coverage and customer service.

Serving Toowoomba Since 1998

As a fully insured and corporate member of ASIAL, Darling Downs Security has been engaged in providing quality security services to national clients who are undertaking substantial projects throughout the region. Major clients include Downer Engineering and Balfour Beatty Electrical substations and associated power line links. Additionally, DDS has provided 24 hr site security for the KR Processing Facility in Toowoomba since just prior to its decommissioning and subsequent demolition.

The DDS Business Banking division carries out first line ATM response work, covering an area which stretches as far as Charleville.

Proudly acting as the major local contractor to national companies SecureCorp, Wilsons and Prosegur, Darling Downs Security have supplied overflow staffing, as required, for major contracts such as the Oakey Army Base Security, Origin Energy projects and the Tarong power station in the past.
