A Recent Testimonial:

"For over ten years I have had the pleasure of working with Karl de la Guerra, at locations throughout the United States.  He has

led numerous conference security details in support of our meetings and conventions.  Anyone that works with Karl see that he

consistently demonstrates a high level of professionalism and assimilates extremely well into the corporate environment.  His

alert attention to detail, ability to immediately respond to a variety of situations and his extensive operational experience is truly

commendable.  Recently, my son was involved in an international incident that made me realize Karl's true capacities as an

international security consultant.  While working with Karl at a corporate event in Atlanta, Georgia, I had the unfortunate

experience of being notified that my son, working on an overseas assignment as a professional diver for an American based

company and his five crew members, had just been illegally detained in the country of Honduras.  They were now being held in a

remote, primitive Honduran prison on a small isolated island.  As his mother, being in an unfamiliar city and not knowing where to

start to manage this type of situation, I immediately turned to Karl for guidance.  Karl spent the next 72 hours wholly focused on

this incident.  I can tell you, without question, that Karl has a very unique set of skills.  His breadth of knowledge in international

protective services, his national and international contacts, his understanding of Central American culture and his years of

operational experience, both here and abroad, led to the creation of a successful long-term strategy that saw the eventual release

of my son, and the Aqua Quest crew.  I am forever grateful for Karl's professional expertise, his compassion for a very concerned

mother, and his absolute understanding of time critical international events."
