Strategic Response Unit

The Strategic Response team is a dedicated unit commited to their field of expertise Serving and protecting our community.

With the increase in crime and the modus operandi of perpetrators, Gunmar Security found it necessary to implement a Strategic Response Unit.
The members ofthe Strategic Response Unit were hand picked from a list of many candidates. These officers are highly trained in all aspects ofcombat, armory, weapons, tactical responses and undercover operations.
The Strategic Response Unit was formed after several serious incidents of armed robbery experienced at various sites where the criminal element was extremely dominant.

This unit was then utilized to provide a security undercover operation as well as a force that monitored and maintained guard over several of these complexes and estates.
This force ensures total protection for the workers inside the property and also maintains a high level of visibility and peace of mind for the management and staff having to deal with these situations.
Success was obtained after many long nights of watching and waiting.
We are proud to announce that these brave young men were instrumental in not only arresting the criminals but their actions became well known and spread amongst would be perpetrators who constantly harassed specific complexes time and time again. This has now thankfully stopped but our brave and dedicated men are still out there.

The Strategic Response Unit members are also utilized during events held by the schools, churches and other functions where they perform crowd control, specifically trained to be on the lookout for any persons who could harm the onlookers or the management of the events.
Schools are also protected in this fashion during strikes and especially in industrial sites where our clients have lock outs and strikes by their workers.
