GRAND ISS ENTERS COLLABORATION AGREEMENT WITH TACTICAL ENERGETIC ENTRY SYSTEMS (TEES)
The alliance promotes security cooperation and builds a strengthened global training workforce to assist governments around the world.
St. Petersburg, FL January 20, 2009: Grand ISS endeavors to support world governments, particularly in emerging markets such as Africa, by implementing focused programs that contribute to global security, stability, and socioeconomic development. The strategic importance of military and law enforcement training figures prominently in the Companys security solutions which deal with managing exposure to present day challenges such as terrorism, conflicts, and crimes which are multinational and transnational in nature.
TEES is one of the worlds premier training providers committed to assisting military, law enforcement and government agencies reach their full potentials in difficult environments by building expertise and skills, said Steven Purl, COO of Grand ISS. And whereas we deliver training programs designed to prepare forces for specific missions particular to the theater threats they face, the TEES leading team of instructors will bolster our capacity to mobilize personnel with a wider variety of specialized capabilities.
Grand ISS is currently introducing its training initiatives to several African governments who are increasingly turning to cooperative security arrangements to meet the specters of terrorism and transnational crime, as well as societal challenges encountered. Wars in Africa cost an estimated $18 billion annually, and although decreasing over the past 10 years, coups, unrest, and ethnic conflicts continue to plague the continent. Governments are investing in trends such as contracted military/police training programs which are conducive to the development of their security forces as a vital means to generate stability and drive economic growth in a challenging global environment.
Alan Brosnan, President of TEES said, Our training curriculum is diverse and flexible to represent the complex requirements of the host country; and we draw our instructors from current and former military and law enforcement personnel who are well socialized in international values with demonstrated records of achievement. By funneling our resources with Grand ISS, we can more effectively work with governments to implement long term military performance programs as well as short term security goals in line with their emerging political processes.
The importance of security is relevant to people everywhere, said Mr. Purl. Governments in emerging markets must enact reforms or face alarming socio-economic consequences. I trust that our alliance with TEES and common commitment to promoting security will allow our training initiative to serve as a catalyst for broader change as part of shaping a safer world.
