Why Choose Us


Our Armed Response Officers are truly the pride of our company and the ones who put their lives on the line for yours. Given the risk involved in their role, we’ve made sure that they’re not just well trained, but have the best training in South Africa, done to global standards. To do this they are first heavily screened to make sure they’re the equipped psychologically as well as physically. They then go through our proprietary training programme to equip them for any situation, even fire fighting. They’re also equipped with the best possible kit, including military grade Kevlar helmets, bulletproof vests and dog bite-proof pants. And importantly, we operate on a zero tolerance for unethical conduct. In short, they are the best of the best who will be there when you need them.


The lack of infrastructure and support in disadvantaged schools means that many high schools do not have the ability to teach Information Technology. Vigilant CQ Teach is a programme, which gives disadvantaged learners the opportunity to learn vital computer skills. Hundreds of learners at disadvantaged schools in Johannesburg townships have benefited from the initiative, which takes trainers and computers into their schools. This skills development programme has a direct impact on lessening unemployment. Every month we interview over 1000 job seekers, the majority of whom don’t have the most basic of skills and are therefore functionally unemployable. The Vigilant CQ Teach programme provides skills that can take learners out of this group and offer them the chance to better their lives whether in the job market or at tertiary education level
