Can you provide undercover / covert or highly visible / overt services?

In the security industry, it is good to have both overt and covert measures in place. Mostly we are facing two types of adversaries, opportunists and the planner. We need to display a certain level of visible security to deter the opportunist, while unseen and clever measures to thwart the determined criminal.

We prefer overt protection details as it draws less attention to our clients. Our Close Protectors will dress and travel with the principle and if an adversary wants to eliminate the principle – identification of the client and his protection won’t be so obvious.

We need to be proactive in our approach to preventing crime and highly reactive in catching the perpetrators.

Why should you use Tacticom International to protect personnel or property?
