By having officers who possess these levels of prior experience, we can add our training in Anti-Terrorism Tactics, Defensive Tactics, Criminal Law, and Surveillance to ensure clients will have officers on duty who are able to handle even the most serious situation.

In many situations, it is best if a client has armed security personnel on duty at all times.
