Gaboon Medical


Our Gaboon medical personnel are not bodyguards with first aid training, they are hybrid Close Protection Officers, medical professionals, with highly sought after skills.

They can be utilised in a purely medical capacity or have a duel role due to their strategic capability and are familiar with working in remote areas (clinics in central DRC), in hostile environments (Iraq/Afghanistan/South Sudan etc.), or in the corporate environment.

Gaboon Tactical


Gaboon’s tactical unit is comprised of Close Protection Officers who have backgrounds in specialised police and military units or who have complimentary skills such as pilots. Their ability to work under pressure in extreme circumstances makes them ideal for our bespoke service.

Gaboon Operations


The Gaboon Protection Operations Centre is a central control hub whereby dispersed services can be monitored and controlled. Here we can facilitate client requirements by managing travel risks and crisis management internationally, 24 hours a day. It is further responsible for the overall operational coordination of Gaboon Protection services related to national and international travel, risk management, crisis response and major security related events with implementation of appropriate emergency crisis response measures.

Gaboon Intelligence


Our Intelligence and Corporate Investigations Division is a mission critical and core organisational function that is both client orientated (as a product delivery capability), but also supports internal Gaboon Protection processes and functions. Our Gaboon Intelligence team are highly skilled with members having decades of experience in all aspects related to managing intelligence and investigations operations across all spheres depicted in the Intelligence and Investigations Cycle
