Our operational, licensed and experienced Armed Protection Teams (Personal Security Details – PSD) possess extensive convoy and PSD operational experience. The teams have intimate knowledge of all provinces in Iraq, and are highly versed in PSD tactics and procedures. Teams are currently located at our regional offices in Baghdad and Basra, and are immediately available for tasking, subject to other commitments. Team composition varies depending upon client requirement and the threat, but all are monitored by our global tracking and management systems.
The teams can be deployed at any project work site and any other locations away from the secure accommodation where the clients reside. Teams also provide close protection on foot in any dismounted role whilst on task.
Groupe Tara S.A. has access to a large number of highly experienced, well-trained close protection officers. Experienced operational management and PSD personnel ensure seamless relief and maintain a high level of situational awareness. This is reinforced by ground knowledge, established professional relationships, operationally proven tactics and procedures, and adherence to all Iraqi policies and directives.
We use the tracker fleet management system to monitor the movements of the convoy and to ensure our clients location in order to send a QRF to rescue them in case of problem and also to communicate the exact location of the convoy to the Iraqi Security Forces. Each principal car is equipped with this device.
