Garda World Security, a physical security, cash logistics, and global risk consulting firms, announced that the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada has selected its global risk advisory group to provide protective services for the Canadian Embassy in Haiti.
The four-year agreement calls for Garda World to provide access control and security at the embassy and the staff residences. Additionally Garda World will safeguard the ambassador and diplomatic staff, in Port-au-Prince and when traveling throughout the country.
"We welcome the opportunity to provide the Canadian government with our expertise and experience in diplomatic protective services," said Nick Copeland, MD, Latin America for Garda World. "The situation in Haiti remains fragile. We are confident that working with our local alliance partner, we will help ensure the safety of Canada's mission."
As part of a Canadian company with a recognized global expertise in humanitarian and diplomatic security, Garda World responded to the devastating January 2010 earthquake by quickly forming a team to support its NGO clients with humanitarian efforts in Haiti. Garda World has since established a long-term presence, helping to reduce risks and provide solutions for a number of clients.
