POLARM is a leading provider of Resilience and Specialist Operational and Training Services
POLARM is a leading UK provider of specialist operational and training services assisting organisations to prevent, protect and respond to those with criminal or terrorist intent.
The formation of POLARM International Ltd has a unique and unusual history (which you can read about in ABOUT US) and this has underpinned both the specialist services and how we deliver them to our clients as well as how we continually seek to innovate and evolve what we do to meet their ever-changing needs. Our capabilities are borne from our team’s knowledge and experience of identifying and dealing with challenging physically hostile situations in close combat; be that in a face to face conflict with a member of the public or at a protester incident. We have developed these skills and are now able to offer civilians an externally accredited Close Combat training course, Level 3 through our POLARM Academy (see www.polarmacademy.co.uk)
We focus on three areas; prevent, protect and respond and provide consultancy, training and operational capabilities to assist in enhancing the security whether this is managed inhouse or outsourced to third party suppliers.
POLARM assist with the identification, assessment and management of threats; this is by either providing own operational teams who are trained in Behavioural Detection and/or providing training courses to security as well as any staff who are public facing. Our training in Behavioural Detection is led by an ex Police officer who pioneered this subject by bringing it over from the US to the UK Police Force over ten years ago. We are the only UK company who have our training externally accredited Level 2 in both awareness and operator level courses and are working in partnership with the Association of Behavioural Detection Operators (ABDO) to assist in setting the standards in the UK market.
If hostile intent is identified POLARM are also able to assist should this in relation to protest activity with our specialist removal services. Our teams have many years operational experience, skills and qualifications to manage simple and complex protest incidents. We have the insurance and equipment to respond and deal with incidents at height, under water, in confined space, on trains, public highways. We offer a variety of service options with guaranteed response times.
POLARM has gained valuable insight into the methodology and operational capabilities of protesting groups from our experience of assisting the removal of protesters and with the increasing protest activity across the UK we’re aware companies need to consider the risk of protest activity as part of their business continuity/resilience planning. We therefore also provide consultancy services to educate, undertake vulnerability assessments, and provide scenario exercises as well offer training in conflict management and basic protester techniques
POALRM’s focus is to provide agile and professional services to our clients ensuring we help organisations prevent, protect and where necessary respond to those with mal-intent
