Special Operations Response Team (S.O.R.T) is a commonly known in the law enforcement industry as SWAT units, which use military-style light weapons and specialized tactics in high-risk operations that fall outside of the capabilities of regular Security Companies or law enforcement agencies. “SWAT” is commonly used internationally as a colloquial, generic term for these units.

Executive Decisions being a Private Security Company, uses S.O.R.T for our Unit.

Our team consists of a number of highly-trained officers who use specialized weapons and tactics to handle high-risk situations, performing functions which include:

  • dealing with heavily armed criminals;
  • execute hostage rescue and counter-extremists operations;
  • high risk protection details and entering reinforced or barricaded buildings.
  • escorting of high value products & assets

Our unit is equipped with specialized weapons to control various levels of threats. We utilize specialized equipment and skills to covertly determine the positions of hostages or hostage takers, inside enclosed structures.

Our Tactical Operators are all accredited with a minimum of 5 years’ experience in this field.

Special Events
