Security Services

At TENSHO we understand that no one client’s requirements are the same when it comes to protection. Therefore we believe that each client requires a different approach based on the threat at hand. Our tailor made protective security solutions help our clients to conduct business in a commercial or hostile setting. Our services accommodate high and low threat environments and a comprehensive threat analysis is designed and reviewed based on the environment in which our client finds themselves.

Recent political unrest paints an uneasy picture for South Africa’s future. Civil unrest and strikes in many commercial and mining sectors have become the norm in South Africa due to political and economic instability. Service delivery, corruption and wage disputes have incited violent protests in 2016 and 2017 which have caused severe injury and death to protestors and civilians. Damage to private and public property during these protests amount to billions or Rand.

TENSHO provides services to counter such destruction to property and life. Commercial riot preparedness and evacuation teams can be placed at the clients premises to deal with the escalation of civil unrest. TENSHO’s highly specialised personnel and protection teams have been trained tactically for such protests in order to mitigate the risk and advise the client in real time of the situation at hand.

TENSHO provides a holistic approach to personal protection. All aspects which could impact our client’s safety are reviewed and analysed. It may be required that we review our clients social standings, wealth, health and reputation to draft a risk analysis to determine the level of threat. Transportation, routes and destinations are carefully analysed. Former police and military personnel with integrated training and experience in commercial and hostile environments are used on our projects. Our teams are professional and have experience in commercial and hostile environments.
Our mobile team personnel consist of qualified and highly experienced ex-military and specialised police members. Our mobile security teams enable our clients to move safely and securely in hostile, high-risk and volatile environments. Our transportation methods are safe and are suitably configured to meet the client’s requirement. Whilst our client is conducting business in these types of environments they are continuously briefed on the context of the specific hostile environment. We prepare our clients thoroughly and continually discuss the fundamentals of ground movements, route planning, contingency planning and first respondent medical support in the event of an incident.
