Crows Security, simply known as the Crows, is a security organization that works along the GCPD in Gotham City. It was co-founded by Jacob Kane and the late Catherine Hamilton-Kane, and funded by the latter.
Crows Security's main goal is to protect the citizens of Gotham City, even trying to do it far better than Batman could; however, they are far from being as effective as the Dark Knight, as they only protect upper-class citizens, while Batman protected all citizens of Gotham, regardless of whether or not they are upper-class, middle-class or low-class citizens.
After going through the case files of Reggie Harris, Jacob Kane discovered that there was a slew of corrupt agents in the Crows as he learned that Miguel Robles took 50,000 dollars from Stu Donnelly and co-conspirators, Angus Stanton and Raymond Calverick, to frame Harris for Lucius Fox's murder, which was committed by Robles himself under the orders of Tommy Elliot. This corruption was seemingly eradicated after Robles' arrest.
The Crows are no allies to Batwoman, even though her goal is to protect the citizens of Gotham City just like Batman had, as they have tried to arrest her on several occasions, albeit with no results.
The Crows lack any form of morals or honor; as evident by the fact that they broke the truce that Batwoman made with them; as they would work together (temporarily) until Tim Teslow is apprehended, but after Tim was killed by Jacob in cold blood, the Crows then tried to kill the female bat vigilante in cold blood.
Unfortunately, after the standoff with Batwoman in Gotham City Arena, the Crows have gained a negative reputation after a video of them attempting to kill Batwoman in cold blood was leaked to the public. As a result of the video being leaked to the public; the citizens of Gotham City have lost any trust and respect that they once had for the Crows.
Crows Security was founded sometime between 2003 and 2004 by former USSOCOM colonel, Jacob Kane and Hamilton Dynamics' CEO Catherine Hamilton-Kane, who also funded the organization. After Batman's disappearance, the Crows became the city's new protector, albeit only available for wealthy individuals.
Ryan Wilder, possessing drugs that belonged originally to Angelique Martin, was arrested by two Crows agents when the drugs were found on her, resulting in Ryan doing time in Blackgate Penitentiary.
After Commander Kane was arrested in late 2019 for the alleged murder of his wife, Catherine Hamilton-Kane, agent Sophie Moore took charge of the security firm. However, he was soon proven innocent by Sophie's help and the testimony of Dr. "Ethan Campbell" and thus released from prison and resumed his role as leader of the Crows.
After Robles was arrested for being the detonator and confessed to having killed Lucius Fox, revealing all of the names of his fellow corrupt Crows agents, Jacob had them all arrested and created a new special strike team in a joint operation with the SRR led by Sophie and Julia Pennyworth, although it was later revealed that she was actually disavowed by the agency.
The Crows assisted the GCPD in the search for Kate Kane when her private jet exploded over Gotham City. Jacob and Sophie brought Mary Hamilton and Luke Fox to the headquarters for questioning after the two Crows learned that Kate was Batwoman.
Jacob and the Crows tried to kill Batwoman in Gotham City Arena with Dana Dewitt airing footage after Batwoman had not been seen for weeks, causing the citizens to have a protest, demanding her return; as they are completely enraged and disgusted by this despicable act. The Crows told the citizens to disburse the assembly. Suddenly, a swarm of bats attacked the protest and the Crows helped the citizens by killing the animals until Ryan Wilder, dressed in the Batsuit, led them away.
Determined that Snakebite would not overrun the city, Jacob had a meeting with the Crows and told them to discover who led the False Face Society, a new gang of drug dealers; later, agent Whelan was told that the False Face Society Leader wore a black mask, but Whelan refused to present this information to Jacob without knowing a proper identity.
Jacob asked agent Whelan to research the Napier painting. After conversing with Evan Blake, Jacob and Sophie learn that the painting was to be auctioned and ask Batwoman to assist them in using the painting to find Coryana; reluctantly, Batwoman assists the Crows until they hit Wolf Spider with an SUV and leave him for dead. Later, Sophie brings Batwoman the badges of the fired agents, but Batwoman is not forgiving and wants Sophie to resign from the organization as well.
