"EUCAP Somalia is in the region to help Somalia build effective civilian maritime security and policing operations, and we're proud to be tasked to work for EUCAP Somalia in this effort."

Using a combination of expatriate and local national employees, JGO will provide:

JGO is the only security firm working in Somalia certified and accredited to ISO and PSC-1 standards (a worldwide standard for security operations) licensed to operate in Somalia.

"Our security plan is fully integrated into EUCAP Somalia's security management systems in the cities of Mogadishu, Hargeisa, and Garowe," Kaye said. "JGO's cooperative, integrated approach leads to safer operations and better results."
