OPERATIONAL DIVISION

The concept of operations is based on an integrated approach of pro-actively protecting our client’s personnel, premises and assets as well as the clientele within the premises. Implementing a system of decentralised self-deployment based on clustering, flexibility in the assessment of the situation and mobility in the deployment of resources.

This division is efficiently controlled and sustained by Regional and Area Managers and has the complete and incorporated support of all other relevant products and services offered to distinctively employ Guarding, Armed Response, Technology and Risk assessment services in support of the manned guarding services, and is supported by a 24 hour National Control Centre.

Highly trained (SWAT) Tactical Support Units are deployed to supplement and support our Guarding, Armed Response and Supervisory personnel complements 24 hours a day in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Port Elizabeth.

ARMED RESPONSE

Our Armed Response Service delivery is divided into two distinct components being “traditional” where one armed Officer is deployed in a vehicle and responds to alarm conditions etc. This is mainly in support of our Guarding personnel, and acts as a force multiplier to the Guarding personnel. The other component, comprising of highly trained armed two man crews form our “dedicated” component. These units are dedicated to specific clients and perform a variety of high visibility and risk functions.

Our Armed response personnel are trained in house to exacting Client requirements thereby ensuring maximum utilisation of all resources and creating an operational “team”. Continuous re-training ensures that prescribed standards are met and maintained and the “one size fits all” approach is not manifested.

PROTECTION OFFICERS

Staff employed in this service delivery form part of our Junior Management component and are highly regarded. Protection Officers are personnel who have served active duty in either the Armed Forces, Law Enforcement or the Cash in Transit industry and have developed specific skills. These are typically staff who are deployed in an armed capacity in either a static or mobile function and are inevitably deployed in higher risk environments where honed observation skills, a working knowledge of the applicable Acts and a hard attitude complement their physical presence.

TECHNICAL SERVICES

OUR TECHNOLOGIES provide convenient and effective solutions, which are designed for ease of integration into new or existing systems. Our complete turnkey solutions from the world’s leading suppliers bring together the appropriate products in one integrated system offering the right technology solution to suit the needs of each client.

SUPERVISION

Dedicated teams of supervisory staff ensure the daily visitation, inspection and motivation of Security Officers on site. Motivation through efficient leadership and management has developed our dedicated mobile Supervisory Teams, Guarding Division and Armed Response Units into interrelated units.
