Vessel Security Services
Our on-board Vessel Security Services involves placing experienced and highly-trained Maritime Security Officers on client vessels for high-risk transits and voyages. At the ship owners / operator’s discretion, our security personnel may be armed and carrying sufficient ammunition to successfully protect the vessel. This includes the use of non-lethal systems, rounds and measures prior to the use of live ammunition. From our extensive experience and time spent in this role, we have found that weapons can be a great visual deterrent but sadly in some cases, they are the only way to successfully defend the vessel.
