Security Services Jamaica

Jamaica, a country located within the Caribbean, a former British Colonial location with its spectacular beachline and history attracts almost 3 million international travelers a year.

Despite its attraction from tourists, Jamaica holds Oil & Gas reserves which pulls in International companies investing and working within the region. Staff are often required to venture to the capital city Kingston and other locations for business meetings. However Kingston should not be deemed a risk free environment for tourists and International travelers due to its crime rate and suffering from gang related activity. It was reported that in Kingston there was 169 murders per 100,000 habitants in 2018 which even though is an evident improvement from 2017, it is still one of the highest murder rates within the Latin American & Caribbean (LAC) region.

Organizations with Staff members traveling to these areas should strive to adopt a robust Journey Management Plan supported by Black Mountain Solutions to ensure staff are not caught in the wrong location during the wrong time which could ultimately lead to a staff member or traveler falling victim to stray gun fire during gang related in fighting.  

As well as the risk from gang related activity foreign travelers could also fall victim to common street crime such as muggings, theft and fraud. These risks can be mitigated with staff receiving HEAT (Hostile Environment Awareness Training) & Security Awareness packages provided by Black Mountain Solutions which will provide staff with relevant knowledge in how to identify threats, avoid becoming victim in a situation and how to manage oneself in a situation if confronted by a criminal. 

Moving around Jamaica during dark hours elevates the risk of common street crime significantly with criminals taking advantage in areas of poor lighting and reduced people presence on the street. Taking into consideration that any organization should consider People as their most valuable asset, Black Mountain recommends these risks are mitigated with use of a security trained driver accompanied by a Close Protection Officer provided by a reputable security company.
