“CSIS” database confirms City of Mississauga Corporate Security’s Reign of Error after Error after Error after Error after Error after
December 16th, 2013
It’s been a long time since I wrote a blog. Wow, last one was December 2, 2013. Right now I’m heavily into analyzing the City of Mississauga Corporate Security (MissCorpSec) database and in the process I have to learn Excel. The database is a record of 5,381 incidents of bans and arrests courtesy of City of Mississauga Corporate Security guards, Contract Security guards, City of Mississauga Corporate Security Area Managers (SAMs) as well as those issued by Security Manager, Jamie Hillis.
In an email, Ken Owen, Director of MissCorpSec once referred to the database as “non-robust”. Such classic MYTHissaugaspeak from that individual! “Non-robust”…
Tell you what. YOU decide about “non-robust”. Take a peek at the City of Mississauga Corporate Security “CSIS” database (below). But first, some background.
As a way of familiarizing myself with the MissCorpSec database, I began a colour-coding exercise: Red for failure to record key information like “Complexion” (aka Race/Ethnicity) or omitting two related pieces of information like Date of Birth and AgeRangeID so the person receiving the ban could be an 8 year old —or 88.
8 or 88… Think that’s preposterous? Well City of Mississauga Corporate Security has banned someone as young as 8 and as old at 89!
The difficulty for me is figuring out how to analyze what Director Ken Owen calls a “non-robust” database and what I call a total piece of disgrace-to-public-service-piece-of-shit.
By our count over 1,700 of 5,381 Security incidents contained either errors or omissions. That’s over 30% of all entries for the “Trust Quality Excellence” “Best City in Canada” whose Mayor brags that they “Lead Canada in management”.
Sometimes while the Date of Birth is missing, at least City of Mississauga Security guards entered the AgeRangeID. The problem was there were numerous circumstances where 15 year olds were assigned the 16 – 20 AgeRange. Or a 16 year old was assigned 11 – 15. Or 26 – 30. You get the idea.
So even when the Date of Birth was missing, you could draw little confidence from a MissCorpSec guard filling in the AgeRange. And it isn’t just that. With Date of Birth missing what use is the AgeRange 16 – 20? Was that person a minor or a 19 – 20 year old?
Seriously. How do you go about analyzing such a piece of crap? How could anyone be confident in drawing any conclusions from it? Have Hazel McCallion and her Councillors been lying to us since at least May 2006—or just not paying attention? You can’t look at the City of Mississauga Corporate Security database and believe City of Mississauga Staff are accountable. If the Mayor and Council even remotely expected some oversight and consequences from senior Staff, we would not be wading through the shitterie that is their “CSIS” database.
We will be responding to all Corporate Reports authored by Security Manager Jamie Hillis and Security Area Manager, Cathie Evans from Spring 2010 to current. In these semi-annual reports they summarized bans, arrests and even “trends” of this database…
Imagine. Hillis and Evans provided no caveats about the “non-robust”ness of this database. (Most telling) not one word about “Complexion”!…
I will say this. When I warned Hazel McCallion and Councillors about City of Mississauga Corporate Security —about the lying, about the chronic disregard for Policy, about behaviour that confirmed Security bosses saw themselves as untouchable to any accountability, a rogue force and Law Unto Themselves— the City of Mississauga Corporate Security database still took me by surprise at just how bad it really was….
So here in its Full-Callous-Disregard-for-Policy are the over 1,700 incidents containing errors, omissions or just stinks of plain stupid.

And here’s the City of Mississauga Corporate Security database, FYI, squished into 640 pixels across…
“Contrary to your allegations, it is because the City does not discriminate on the basis of age and ethnicity that there are no records to be found based on such categories.”
