Stealth Vigilance deploys new Bomb Dog and new Executive as it expands capability to address growing security threats
RALEIGH, NC (December 1, 2016)
Stealth Vigilance, LLC (SVK9), a private K-9 Detection firm, proudly announced today that it has an added another K-9 team trained in bomb/explosives detection. The veteran-owned company also added to its executive team by appointing Geoff Beckwith as Chief Operating Officer to lead the expansion of its Explosives Detection division.
In today’s uncertain times, the threat of bombings and shootings looms over the public conscience. Event security is critical for both public and private functions to ensure public safety. Highly trained explosive/firearm detection canine teams have proven to be a reliable resource at detecting explosives and provide a minimally intrusive, yet visible deterrent to terrorism directed at venues.
SVK9’s new certified bomb dog is K-9 Gunner, who is a German Shepherd dog that was born in Europe and specifically bred to be a working K-9. SVK9 has certified K-9s for hire that cover narcotics, firearms and explosives detection.
Geoff Beckwith, SVK9’s new COO, a retired Police Sergeant from Southern California has extensive law enforcement experience as a SWAT Team Operator and Police K-9 Unit Supervisor. “This is an opportunity that will allow me to apply my tactical and investigative training and experience in a different capacity while still providing public safety,” said Beckwith about his new position.
“We are excited to welcome Mr. Beckwith to SVK9 and I am confident that his broad industry experience will prove valuable in helping shape our future growth with K-9 Detection,” said Kyle Breischaft, Founder & CEO of Stealth Vigilance.
