Founded in 1997, TacForce has provided comprehensive security for projects in hostile operating environments around the world including the Middle East, South America and Indonesia.

TacForce agents and affiliates have been working in the Middle East since 2003. To date we have had no major security incidents. Our operations are based on a unique approach, combining superior skills with diplomacy and tact, along with unsurpassed local knowledge of the countries in which we work.

TacForce was established by experienced security operators. We rely on our extensive network of tactical operators from elite military and police special operations groups from around the world (United States, Great Britain, Australia, France, Sweden, and Germany) to provide the most advanced and up to date specialized security available. Our employees have not only served as operators but have led and taught others. They have undergone extensive in theatre training programs and know the situation better than anyone.

TacForce takes a personal interest in each project it undertakes. We have known the people we hire for many years, enabling us to ensure their quality, reliability and professionalism.
