Anti-Terrorism Officers

Few security officers outside of the government community have the training or experience to effectively prevent and respond to threats associated with terrorism and organized violence. As a source of security risk, terrorism is unique and the methods used by terrorists require that security personnel receive specialized training, equipment, planning support, and tactical supervision. To address this need for security officers with specialized civil force protection capabilities, Blackwatch Protection Services created the Blackwatch Anti-Terrorism Officer program.

Blackwatch Anti-Terrorism Officers (ATOs) are Special Services Group personnel that have been specially selected, trained, and equipped for employment in situations where terrorism is a critical risk.

Anti-Terrorism Officers (ATOs) provide an effective and responsible alternative to conventional security services in homeland security roles. Some of the common types of ATO assignments include:

  • Protection of airports and seaports
  • Security of power plants, water treatment facilities, and other critical infrastructure facilities
  • Protection of chemical plants and ships carrying hazardous cargo
  • Security for public events
  • Supplemental security at military bases, embassies, and other critical government facilities
