Headquartered in Miami, Florida, neighboring the United States Southern Command and other U.S. Federal agencies, Hazelwood Street Consultants, LLC, has since 1992 (then known as Strategic Resources Group) innovated kidnap for ransom and extortion response methodologies to reflect the needs of clients in a modern and evolving world. Hazelwood Street Consultants has shifted the paradigm of the industry by evolving and improving upon methodologies originating in the 1970’s, astonishingly still dangerously and thoughtlessly practiced, unchanged, elsewhere in today’s marketplace.
Our mission is to create an ongoing confidential relationship with our clients, ensuring their safety and business continuity through our decades of experience and state-of-the-art resources.
We start by working together with clients, brokers, producers and colleagues, from the moment a Special Risks policy is issued or a service agreement is contracted. This relationship is then sustained through prevention techniques and training, unlimited and ongoing intelligence support, interactive case management, and after-incident care.
Hazelwood Street is unique in the marketplace in that it has its own team of full-time psychiatric and psychological specialists in the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). These team members participate from the inception of every incident until its conclusion.
Our paradigm is service driven, client oriented, proactive and creative. We aggressively and precisely manage events, and though we do “respond” to an incident, we don’t “react”. We seek to manage and consult. The result: a well-prepared client, safely home, and an organization and/or family made whole.
Our geographically diverse team assures world-wide response coverage from offices located on the East and West coasts of the United States, Mainland China, Hong Kong, South Africa, the UK, and elsewhere. With a broad possession of cross cultural, political, law enforcement, legal, diplomatic, and intelligence experience brought to bear in every case, Hazelwood Street Consultants, LLC is unrivaled in its ability to respond for our clients anywhere, anytime.
Our response consultants, with their various senior level diplomatic, military, intelligence, and law enforcement backgrounds; each have an average of 30 years of experience in the practice, and have collectively managed some 1,300 cases of Kidnap for Ransom, Extortion, and Marine Piracy.
