Brit Alliance, together with our local partners who have a signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the authorities in each country, employ active members of the Navy/Marine police as armed guards. They are carefully selected based on their rank and experience in maritime security. These individuals are capable of handling situations at sea and act as a deterrent against piracy.
Prior to deployment, they receive comprehensive briefings on the task, including input from the Brit Alliance operations team on anti-piracy measures.
Maintaining a 24/7 watch, these armed guards are deployed on commercial vessels to provide security assistance while operating within their country’s waters. Their presence on board offers peace of mind to the vessel’s master, crew, and clients, ensuring protection while sailing or awaiting berthing at anchorage.
All local national armed guards follow their current standard operating procedures (SOPs) and the rules covering the use of force prescribed by their naval command.
