Clients are assisted in developing detailed travel plans while on trips to a potentially dangerous region. A full spectrum of services range from a review of planned overseas activities, provision of emergency contacts, and the development of emergency contingency plans in case of hostilities. From determining safe routes while in country to choosing safe lodging, the client is served by thoroughly researching criminal and political all-source intelligence applicable to the area.
Clients are counseled and coached by conducting thorough research into current sociopolitical issues that can lead to a high profile client or business being placed into dangerous situations. By analyzing current social, political, and economic events in areas where clients may travel, informed plans of action can be devised to negate to the greatest extent possible any dangerous circumstances that may arise. Socio-Political analysis, in essence, is a research report that forecasts the probability of the client being impacted by political tensions, conditions, and events occurring in the country or region in which the client is operating.
An in-depth insight into social and political contexts has proven crucial to the success and development of projects. This is especially true for those that are culturally or spiritually controversial and involve environmental concerns, regional politics, and border issues. Taken as a whole, these issues are identified and analyzed to identify levels of threat that face clients when operating in potentially unfriendly locations.
Custom tailored travel security research and reports serve the client by:
– Obtaining location specific intelligence in near real-time.
– Providing alerts to times and locations where impending threats may occur.
– Making more informed decisions to minimize business disruptions.
– Providing insights to be more proactive and less reactive with responses to threats such as kidnapping.
– Developing contingency plans as situations continually evolve.
Kidnapping Prevention Training
Incidents of kidnapping are on the rise globally. For the business traveller, high net worth individual, religious missionary, or if it is just a person on vacation with the family, it is imperative to learn strategies to cope with criminal threats such as kidnapping. Today, kidnapping impacts all people regardless of socioeconomic status, race, or religion. Simply being a resident of a specific country can mark the traveller as a target for crimes such as kidnap for ransom
Dr. Everidge’s kidnapping prevention courses are designed and custom tailored for the individual, business or organization that may travel to recognized hot spots where kidnapping is currently a security concern. The training courses and strategies are practical and designed from experience and evidence from recognized experts in the field. Dr. Everidge believes that recognition of threats and prevention of kidnappings is the key to being safe when away from home. Parlor tricks or sleight of hand techniques meant to allow you to escape a dangerous situation once you have been taken captive are not taught. The training and strategies are based on years of study into the criminal mind, real life violence, and extensive travel to foreign locations. Services provided to the client are custom designed based on your needs.
