Gaboon Close Protection
Gaboon Close Protection has an impressive ability to provide a substantial, highly trained team of skilled manpower where and when needed. Our services include Personal Protection, Protective Driving, Asset Protection, Event Risk Management & Travel Risk Management.
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’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.
Accurate information is invaluable in both the personal and corporate environments. Our Intelligence division employs individuals with experience in highly specialised law enforcement and investigative units with proven intelligence ability. We offer surveillance and counter-surveillance, due diligence reports, profiling, and corporate, commercial and criminal investigative services.
A safe, secure and totally bespoke African destination management service. This service is specifically positioned for the individual traveller who would rather travel discretely, or in smaller groups. Travel with a multi-skilled professional, or have us prepare an appropriate, risk-assessed itinerary. We make travel dreams come true – safely.
