Amalgamated Security Services (Grenada) Limited Receives the Prestigious 'People's Choice 2014' Award

Amalgamated Security Services (Grenada) Limited receives the prestigious ‘People’s Choice 2014’ award from the Grenada Chamber of Industry and Commerce (GCIC) at its 26th Annual Business Awards function. General Manager of ASSL Grenada, Major Charles Rodriquez, says: “It is just fantastic. Our heavy investment into the careful selection and ongoing training of our officers has now been publicly recognized. Our clients knew already that if you are contracting ASSL, you do get a well-rounded officer, who is not only fully qualified to secure your people and assets in any given circumstances, but who is also trained to represent your company or handle issues at your home. Our cash transport and alarm monitoring services also adhere to the highest international standards. Obviously, our main priority is to secure our clients. However, we have experienced that our sheer presence in many locations throughout the island also helps to decrease the number of incidents in communities fencing our client locations. The People’s Choice award now has shown that Grenada’s general population appreciates this fact. Thanks to the GCIC, every Grenadian could vote for her or his company of choice via text message for one week, and ASSL emerged as the People’s Choice. Having also been nominated as Employer of the Year further reassures me that our continuous human development program and our socially responsible employment practices are on track and appreciated. We will continue to be the security company of choice for clients, employees and the broader population and who knows what will happen at next year’s awards ceremony …”

Brian Ramsey, Regional Development Director for the ASSL Group of Companies, headquartered in Trinidad & Tobago, with further operations in Grenada, Barbados, St. Lucia, Guyana and soon in Antigua, adds: “We do thank the GCIC for this opportunity and congratulate Mr. Rodriquez for his excellence in service. We also extend our gratitude to everyone who has voted for us. For more than 3 decades we have put systems and procedures in place to ensure that any of our various services are standard setting for the Caribbean region. These high standards have helped us to grow into the largest private security firm in Grenada and I am very proud that we are able to contribute to the overall security and safety in the country.”

On March 18th, 2014, the National Insurance Property Development Company Limited awarded contract to Amalgamated Security Services Limited for the provision of Prisoner Transport Services for the Trinidad and Tobago Prison Services.


Amalgamated Security Services Certifies Officers from Prison and Police Services in CPR and AED

On Saturday the 25th of October 2014, Amalgamated Security Services Limited (ASSL) in co-operation with the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) and the Prison Services of Trinidad & Tobago held a Certification Ceremony at TTPS’ Guard & Emergency Branch in El Socorro to recognize successful participants of CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and AED (Automated External Defibrillator) training programmes. The trainings were delivered by ASSL’s Training Academy in various locations throughout the country. 142 Police Officers and 33 Prison Officers successfully completed the courses. ASSL also re-trained 43 of its Prisoner Transport drivers.

The initiative came to life due to this year’s many new requirements for the provision of prisoner transport services by ASSL, including the change “from trucks to busses to make prisoner transport more humane”, as Surrendra Sagramsingh, Ag. Superintendent of Police (Court and Process Branch), informed the audience. In this context three ambulance style vehicles were also introduced to transport infirmed persons to court by means of stretcher or wheelchair. David Milette, Ag. Superintendent of Prisons, further elaborated that a few month ago “it was identified that there would have been special needs prisoners and individuals … (and) once we transport these individual (to court) there might be emergencies along the way and we should have trained personnel for all the services involved who would be able to render immediate assistance. … What we are dealing with are lives and lives to be saved.” He thanked “the Amalgamated Services for their vision in projecting the future with a distance … (and) for orchestrating this programme”. Mr. Sagramsingh agreed by stating that “I as the Superintendent of Court and Process Branch wish to extend much thanks to the Amalgamated Services for allowing us to be part of this, for allowing our personnel to be trained by their certified instructors, so that we can operate in a more proficient, efficient and effective manner”.

Chief Administrative Officer of ASSL’s Prisoner Transport Division, Gregory Jack described the objectives of the initiative as teaching law enforcement officers when and how to apply CPR, if required using the automated external defibrillator. He also highlighted that ASSL’s Training Academy is part of the United States National Safety Council’s (NSC) Network of Instructors and therefore courses are based on internationally recognized standards and successful participants are NSC certified. ASSL’s Training Academy is also certified by the National Training Agency of Trinidad & Tobago and is part of NTATT’s Registry of TVET Training Providers.

Calvert Ellis, Chief Operations Officer of ASSL’s Prisoner Transport Division, closed the ceremony by thanking “all members of the Police Service and the Prison Service and in particular the Seniors in those agencies for their cooperation in assisting us in achieving what we had to achieve. Without their support and cooperation we would not have achieved it. We can only succeed by working together”.
