The Solace Global K&R responders have first-hand operational and strategic experience, having successfully resolved more than 500 international kidnappings around the world. Specific skills include:

  • Negotiation
  • Ransom delivery
  • Hostage recovery
  • Product contamination / corporate extortion resolution
  • Kidnap & ransom training

The Solace K&R responders have the specialist skills and capability to respond to the different types of kidnappings, including:

  • Tiger Kidnappings
  • Vessel Hijackings
  • Terrorist/Politically Motivated Kidnappings
  • Blackmail
  • Product contamination without an extortion demand
  • Contamination with an extortion demand (conventional commercial extortion)

Our K&R response process is proportionate and professional and begins in the 24/7/365 Response Centre where our response managers are trained to deal with all types of crisis’ but specifically K&R first response.

Whatever the motivations of the group carrying out the kidnapping, we always recommend that companies/families seek the advice of an experienced responder. This is to ensure that the outcome meets the needs of the hostage, which may not always correspond with the UK or any other government’s goals.

Kidnap & Ransom Response forms part of our Respond & Recover series of services which also includes Crisis Management & Emergency Response, Evacuations, and Medical Assistance.
