MEET OUR TEAM
The State of Maine requires a commercial license when operating a drone. There is an extensive background check followed by a lengthy flight test before being provided a license to operate a drone. DSG has two staff members who are certified to operate drones in the state.
DSG has two experienced, state-certified professional Investigators who will meet with you and examine the information that is pointing to possible theft. We’ll explain what tools and options can be used to produce results with either prosecution or termination.
DSG believes that providing a discrete, low key appearance in any event large or small will give the security team the advantage of blending into the crowd. This allows them to walk around the event unnoticed, collecting any information that may raise a red flag of a possible threat to the crowd. By doing so, we are able to immediately react to that threat. We work hand in hand with local law enforcement and the event security staff to be proactive with the goal of preventing a security situation from developing.
DSG has one of the best firearms instructors in the country on its team. Peter Joyce has been recognized as a leader in providing cutting edge training throughout Maine and the US. Peter and staff will help those who have never held or fired a gun become educated, comfortable, and confident. We also work with experienced firearm owners who are looking to expand their knowledge and training.
DSG is fully bonded through Lloyd’s of London and all couriers carry the maximum of vehicle insurance.
The DSG team are retired men and women of law enforcement with many years of security and safety experience protecting those who need help protecting themselves. We have a close working relationship with local and state law enforcement agencies as well as the court system. We ensure that all who need help are given it. Services include escorting the client to and from court, attending a court appearance, and providing a liaison with the DA and AG’s office along with the law enforcement departments that may be involved.
One of our biggest tools is our law enforcement liaison program, where we bring dispensary owners, grow owners and staff together with local and state departments and agencies to form a transparent and close working relationship.
The cornerstone of Durst Security Group is its staff. These security specialists are either former or retired law enforcement officers along with military veterans who have extensive security training and experience. We have formed a highly respected relationship with local, state and federal law enforcement throughout Maine and bring those connections to our clients.
Since cannabis is considered a Class 1 drug on the federal side and still illegal, even in states like Maine who have legalized either medical or recreational cannabis, many hurdles still remain.
With four years of experience in this industry, we are able to handle the logistics of this unique product, including the identification of financial institutions that will accept large quantities of currency, and safe and secure transportation of cash and cannabis products.
DSG provides tracking devices to add another layer of safety and security for employees, customers and law enforcement personnel.
