he luxury tourism industry and population of the Turks and Caicos is rapidly expanding. As such, demand for security services is likewise increasing.
The majority of local security companies in the Turks and Caicos offer uniformed and plain clothes security officers. These are available for hire by local businesses, residences, and visitors.
Per-hour and daily rates are available for short-term and special events, in addition to the typical commercial contracts.
When renting a luxury vacation villa, 24 hour security won’t add much to the accommodation rate, and will provide peace of mind. Some of the residential regions on Providenciales have private security patrols and CCTV systems as well.
Drivers and VIP Transport
Intended for visitors, another option is a driver and security guard, which provides for stress-free and constantly-available transport during the entirety of your stay.
With a driver, you’ll have a tour guide and taxi driver in one, and you won’t have to worry about parking.
When hosting a large event such as a wedding, party, or corporate conference, security can provide assistance with admittance, prevent disturbances, and oversee valet services.
Celebrity Protection and Visiting Security
In special circumstances, or in the case of official visits by foreign members of state or government, approval may be granted by the Commissioner of the Royal Turks and Caicos Police Force for foreign security to operate in the Turks and Caicos. To prevent delays and other issues, we advise contacting the local police well in advance of the planned visit.
Security officers trained in VIP protection are locally available, albeit at a higher rate than for a typical security guard.
Aircraft and Yacht Security
The Turks and Caicos welcomes a large number of private jets and luxury yachts. Our FBOs and larger marinas have full-time security on-site, yet it’s possible to arrange for extra personnel if a closer watch is preferred.
Prior to reserving with a security company, we advise contacting your port or FBO of choice, as they are typically able to offer dedicated security officers for a specific vessel if required.
Security System Installation
The installation, maintenance and monitoring of electronic security, CCTV and alarm systems, both for existing structures and new construction, is offered, and can be set to be monitored by the homeowner or security company.
There isn’t an extensive selection of system equipment available on-island. As systems evolve rapidly, it may make sense to import the necessary security equipment when building a home.
There are several armored truck and hardened luxury transport vehicles in the Turks and Caicos, available for VIP escort, cash, and valuable item transport.
Construction Site Monitoring
The live monitoring by video of construction and building sites is another service offered by some of the local security companies. This service will help to prevent material theft, tampering, and vandalism.
Local Security Companies
BLU Security Services is based in Grace Bay on the island of Providenciales, and provides training, commercial security, uniformed guard services, motorized patrols, personal protection, and residential security.
