"What We do" and "What we Offer"
This is explained further under the "Services Provided" section.
Intrepid Security Consulting cc is all about the following :-
Loyalty, Dedication, Commitment and Service Excellence.
Dave and Raymond, as, the founding Members of Intrepid Security Consulting cc, did not gain our extensive security experience, only by sitting in Conference and Lecture rooms, or by way of reading text books and attending courses.
Yes, We both spent time in the Corporate environment, and valuable experience was gained, however...The real experience regarding the all-important life skills and other knowledge pertaining to operating effectively in the seedy underbelly of the criminal world therefor e being successful in the Security Industry, Crime Prevention and Investigative techniques, was acquired hands on in the streets. This is the most important part of the Security Industry.
The real nitty gritty working experience, was gained on the job. We have witnessed the effects of Crime on the Victim, first hand.
We have experienced the total disregard for the basic human rights of the Victim and the potential for unremitting violence and the extreme cunning of the Criminal.
We did not always delegate the unpleasant tasks to subordinates, but were involved in investigations and operations at ground level.
We began our careers at the bottom of the ladder, having to deal with criminals and crime at first hand, entering suspects premises, apprehending and detaining suspects and handling all the legal aspects of criminal docket preparation and criminal prosecution.
We have had the experience of operating at the level of the criminal. These valuable skills give us the advantage in all aspects of Security, Risk Assessments, Asset Management, CPO or VIP/ Body guarding, Investigations, Crime detection, prevention and successful apprehensions and prosecutions, These "Life Skills" were required in order for us to get where we are today.
