The Challenge of Public Safety
DHD International - The People
We live in a time of uncertainty. Geo-political issues have created a culture of violence through domestic and international terrorism and extremism. The security of high profile individuals, government agencies, religious groups and other organizations are constantly being challenged. Recent terrorist events in the United States, Canada, France and around the world highlight these issues.
Through years of experience in law enforcement, executive close protection, event security management and the development of counter-terrorism strategies, we have the operational experience and expertise to design a security solution to suit your individual or organization's security requirements. These counter measures will provide a safe and secure environment, with protection in depth, for our clients.
To counter such extreme actions as terrorism, extremism and random acts of violence will require a proactive, integrated, intelligence-led model of private and public policing. DHD International has the ability to provide a mix of proactive versus reactive measures such as Strategic Threat Assessments, Facility Vulnerability Assessments, Close Personal Protection, Static, Mobile and Electronic Surveillance, Executive Concierge and Security Liaison responsibilities.
A Strategic Threat Assessment is completed on each client so that we can tailor a security package to meet the exact security requirements of the client.
Whether our Client’s threat level is low, medium or high our agents have previous experience in Close Personal Protection and they are skilled in the use of force continuum and martial arts. A Facility Vulnerability Assessment calculates the risk of criminal or terrorist actions against the facility and illustrates the impact of increasing protective measures on such actions. We provide the right security package for every service offered. We are professional. We are accountable. It is who we are and it is what we do.
