ARDENT Protection provides comprehensive physical security assessments for multi-family residential complexes including apartment buildings, condominiums, and gated and planned communities. 

We work closely with property managers and homeowners associations to help solve security problems and to create effective security programs for residential communities of all sizes.

Our guarantees are supported by our unwavering client focus, the ARDENT culture, screening, interviewing, continuously training our staff, leadership development, and dedication to exceptional customer service.

The foundation of any Safety & Security program is to identify the general risks, targeted risks & common hazards. After identifying the list of possible risks and hazards our team then prioritizes each one in preparation for step two.

Designing a comprehensive Safety & Security plan involves using the identified risks to determine key goals and objectives for mitigating and responding to each. 

     Further, it involves painting a clear and realistic picture of each risk-based scenario, determining the time and resources needed to address them, identifying decision points, and selecting viable options for an effective response.

Contingency plans are necessary for unlikely or catastrophic events. It’s near impossible to develop a detailed plan for each and every possible, however unlikely event. Contingency planning helps fill those gaps to allow for clarity even in chaos.

At this stage, we ensure the plan is adequate in its ability to meet your organization’s key objectives and is a feasible approach to responding to your specific and non-specific concerns. 

It is important that anyone who has a role within any part of the plan knows that role thoroughly. We help ensure your security plan is adequate in its ability to meet your organization’s key objectives and is a feasible approach to responding to your specific and non-specific concerns. We’re dedicated to building you a plan that is cost-effective and practical, but most importantly, complete.

We Also Offer Executive & Secure Transport

Commodities Escort and Protection is a low-profile, high-readiness security measure deployed to safely transport valuable goods from one secure location to the next. High-value commodities in transition from location to location are at their most vulnerable.

Unfortunately, this fact is widely known by the criminal groups skilled at targeting them. These groups are often highly experienced, organized, and well aware of the signs of an unsecured transport. This is precisely why escort by expertly trained protection professionals is a necessity.

Early detection of hostile surveillance is the best way to mitigate the risk of robbery, theft, or hijacking of valuable goods. A proactive strategic response plan, and a team of experienced professionals to execute it is essential for success against all levels of risk.

Prior to escort or transport, experienced Agents prepare and design an appropriate course of action to ensure confidentiality, chain-of-custody, and safety of your goods until they reach the authorized final destination and personnel.

ARDENT Professionals have been trusted to secure the transport of a variety of high-value goods, to include:

  • Precious Jewels
  • Currency
  • Watercraft
  • Luxury Automobiles

We’ve used our low-profile, high-readiness strategy to secure jewels, cash, and other high-value goods worth millions. Our tactics ensure opportunistic (amateur) attackers are unaware of opportunity and skilled hijackers are discovered and addressed before they have the ability to act.

Our workplace violence prevention program offers peace-of-mind during uncomfortable times.

  • Hostile termination
  • Cancellation of services
  • Unexpected termination of contracts
  • Suspensions or layoffs
  • Massive salary cuts

If your staff has concerns about the safety of your work environment it is wise to at a minimum, have professionals investigate the root of that concern, and present comprehensive solutions.

Certainly with, but even without direct threats having been made. Prior to delivering unfavorable news to staff or vendors, executives and managers should implement a heightened protection strategy to mitigate the increased risk.

There are several options for increasing the Security & Protection of your business to address the temporarily increased risk. 

  • A low-profile (covert) Protection Agent tactfully implanted into your office environment is an excellent approach that allows for high-level security without introducing tension or panic into your workplace.
  • Private Investigations are a great tool for reporting suspicious actions that may indicate a higher probability of intended harm to you and your staff.
  • Professional Armed Security overtly positioned, is a great visual & physical deterrent for non-specific threats to your work environment.

The professionals that work with ARDENT Protection are passionate high-performers who are dedicated to keeping you and your team safe.

Our practitioners are highly skilled and experienced professionals from various backgrounds in the Intelligence, Law Enforcement, Military, Private Investigation, Government & Private Security, Executive & Covert Protection, High-Threat Protection, and Counter-Terrorism communities
