High level security implemented during visit from former US political leader

Case study

The client

Our client in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago was tasked with providing VIP event security for a privately held event, to be hosted by a high-profile, former US political leader in the capital, Port of Spain.


The situation

With local security personnel unable to cope with such a high-risk, complex operation, the client enlisted Drum Cussac’s expertise and cutting-edge technology to provide and control security at all levels throughout the event – law enforcement agencies, national security, protocol officers, local security providers and event organisers.


Our response

Our team devised and executed a comprehensive VIP event security plan, utilising our in-house expertise and state-of-the-art technology to ensure maximum protection throughout the VIP’s visit.

Our security plan included:

Drum Cussac managed a team of 50 security personnel during the event, utilising private providers for internal control; grounds security and parking; and off-duty policemen for traffic control.

After the event we provided Executive Protection and Journey Management back to the hotel, tracking all movements in GlobalRiskManager™, and provided overnight security guards too. The following morning the VIP was escorted back to the airport for departure.


The outcome

Drum Cussac succeeded in providing a professional and discreet service for this extremely high-profile VIP, underpinning the project with in-house operations expertise and cutting-edge technology to ensure we didn’t miss a beat. Our client subsequently requested similar services for a follow up event.
