The parents of a young professional working for a small NGO in Kampala asked Talus Group to provide additional security for their daughter. Kampala is a medium-to-high-risk environment, with street crime, kidnapping, and an emergent al-Shabaab terrorist threat to the expatriate community in Kampala in particular and Uganda East Africa in general.
We contacted the young woman and conducted an in-depth interview to obtain a complete picture of her circumstances, environment, friends, routine and lifestyle. During follow-on telephone contacts, we provided her with security training and advice. A Talus Group security asset in Kampala conducted an on-the-ground assessment and additional security/safety training. A "911" capability was put in place to provide her with a personalized 24/7 response capability in Kampala in the event of any type of trouble or emergency.
