IMMEDIATE EMERGENCY RESPONSE IN THE TRI-STATE AREA
The dawning of the 21st Century has brought
changes not only to society in the United States, in general, but also
to the security services industry in America, in particular. Situations,
lifestyles and circumstances that we once took for granted as safe
havens are no longer the secure sanctuaries they once were. Life has
changed here in the U.S., and GSS Security Services, Inc. has expanded
its services to meet these new needs, requirements and demands.
At the beginning of 2003, GSS Security
Services, Inc. launched its new Canine Explosives Detection Unit under
the supervision of long-time NY/NJ Port Authority Police (PAPD) sergeant
and supervisor Vincent Oliva. Oliva spent more than 10 years with the
PAPD’s canine unit, assisting or supervising in the training of more
than 75 dogs in 13 classes for the PAPD and various Federal, State,
County and Local agencies in the Tri-State Area. Today he is considered
to be one of the top trainers in his field.
Realizing that terrorist and criminal
activities around the globe and in the U.S. have now spilled into the
corporate world, GSS Security Services, Inc. took the steps necessary to
protect its current and future clientele by establishing its Canine
Explosives Detection Unit. GSS Security Services, Inc. puts its officers
and dogs through the same type of rigorous and complete screening and
training process as it does for all its personnel - - including some 400
hours of classroom and in-the-field instruction before they go out to
serve a client.
Security Services, Inc.’s canines can detect 25 to 30 different odors
that might comprise a bomb, which translates to practically any
composition that could be made into an explosive. Furthermore, whereas
in the past having an explosive detection team was considered like
having a black eye, today it is viewed as a positive service that can
help people feel better, safer and more comfortable.
Promising virtually immediate emergency
response in the Tri-State Area, as well as quick reaction in other parts
of the country, GSS Security Services, Inc.’s new Canine Explosives
Detection Division is sure to be utilized by a wide variety of clients
including venues, companies, entertainment entities and law enforcement
departments without their own canine programs.
