Unarmed Security Team
With minimum manning and busy schedules ship's crews work very hard. They lack the time to properly focus on security and conduct effective 24 hour watches especially while at anchor.
An unarmed security team can provide the Master and Crew with security training and vessel hardening (Security Training ?�� links to security training page); but additionally maintain a proper and effective lookout, and provide much needed assistance to ensure security measures remain effective during periods at anchor, in port and during cargo operations.
Logistically unarmed teams can join a ship almost anywhere whilst the vessel is alongside subject to visa requirements. As no firearms are involved this becomes a personnel only embarkation/disembarkation thus minimising cost.
