Correctional Services Overview

Our Expertise Correctional Services Overview

When it comes to Correctional Services, Amalgamated Security Services Limited (ASSL) is number one in Trinidad and Tobago. We are the most experienced and professional private Correctional Services company in the Caribbean.

We at Amalgamated Security Services Limited understand that the key to success in Correctional Services is maintaining a high level of client satisfaction and loyalty, and with this in mind we are continuously improving our capability in this area.

Ensuring the safe and secure escort and custody of prisoners demands a sound understanding of security, respect for the authority of the court, the criminal justice system and the officials which many of our staff possess and have expertise in. Within our Management staff are persons who have worked in both the Prison Service and the Police Service at the most senior levels. Amongst persons qualified in various specialized areas at Amalgamated Security Services Limited are persons with background in Prisons Administration, Technical and Vocational Education and a working knowledge of Quantity Surveying.

 
Our officers at the Prisoner Transport Division are highly trained professionals with most having security and/or criminal justice backgrounds as well as worked as transportation officers for multiple years. Amalgamated Security Services Limited understands that prisoners need to be managed and treated as individuals with their own rights whilst recognizing why they are being held in custody. 

Safety and on- time delivery/pickup is extremely important to us as we maintain an excellent safety record and our clients often rave about our efficiency and reliability. Amalgamated Security Services Limited transports thousands of prisoners per year and each of our specially designed and built vehicles averages in excess of 5,000 kilometres per month. We are the only company in the Caribbean to have been awarded a contract for the transportation of prisoners.

Amalgamated Security Services Limited, in 1999, initiated and financed a project that lead to the establishment of the Caribbean Correctional Association (CCA). All Prison Commissioners andHeads were invited to Trinidad and after a two-day conference at the Chaguaramas Hotel and Convention Center, the constitution was ratified and an executive was elected from among the Prison Commissioners/Heads in attendance. The Caribbean Correctional Association went on to gain acceptance as a Regional Affiliate of the American Correctional Association in August 2000.
Over the years of its operation, Amalgamated has been involved through its Detainee Escort service in the safekeeping of persons who are denied entry to Trinidad and Tobago by the immigration authorities and must be detained by the carrier (airline or shipping line) until they can be returned to their point of origin.
In December 1997 Amalgamated was awarded a contract by the Government of Antigua and Barbuda to provide total management and related custodial and rehabilitative services at their local prison. This prison facility was the only prison in Antigua and so housed all categories of prisoners.
Amalgamated Security Services Limited is the leading security services provider in Trinidad and Tobago and has over 10 years experience in the provision of GPS Tracking services, tracking thousands of units in Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados and Grenada.
Amalgamated Security Services Limited is the only Caribbean company to transport prisoners on behalf of the Government. ASSL has, since 1995, operated the Prisoner Transportation Service for the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Our Prisoner Transportation Division provides the service to all the courts in Trinidad by transporting inmates to and from the Prisons, Institutions and Detention Centers in Trinidad.
As part of its overall operations Amalgamated Security has established a full-time training unit headed by a Director who holds a Ph.D. in Technical and Vocational Education. The unit designs and conducts training programs for internal use and for third party clients.
Along with the staff of ASSL who have experience in the management and design of prisons, our company has consultants in various branches of Engineering and Architecture readily available to ASSL whenever required for developing designs for correctional facilities.
Using a cadre of physician associates, Amalgamated Security is able to provide health services for prisons. Our approach reduces risk to inmate patients, correctional facilities and the public by focusing on early identification and assessment, health education, prevention, treatment, continuity of care and reintegration services.
In keeping with our strong commitment to earn customer confidence by utilizing available modern technology, ASSL provides a service of designing and installing electronic security systems inclusive of close circuit television systems (CCTV) at prisons and other high risk facilities throughout the Caribbean region.
