Providing only the best quality close protection guards with up-to-date qualifications who have undergone thorough background checks – you can relax and enjoy the peace of mind it brings.


What are Close Protection Services?

Sometimes referred to as bodyguards, many people need close protection services because of their job or professional status, including:

  • Celebrities and influencers
  • Royal families
  • Diplomats and foreign officials
  • Political figures
  • Executives and CEOs

In this situation, close protection both keeps the individual safe from potential harm and also keeps others out of their way – stopping crowds and bottlenecks in public places that can be disruptive and pose a hazard.

Close protection officers are highly trained, specialists that can provide a wide range of services, all of which can keep their client/s safe from harm. These duties are vast and varied, but often include:

  • Physical security and barrier formation
  • Completing risk assessments – both pre-planned and on the spot while out and about
  • Discreet surveillance
  • Project management
  • Tactical driving
  • Conflict management
  • Overt or a more discreet presence
  • Briefing drivers and outside staff, including hotel managers
  • Pre-emptively checking venues and locations for threats
  • Assessing different levels of threat and actioning resolutions
  • Providing emergency first aid


Benefits of Close Protection Services

There are many benefits of close protection services, which include:

  • Providing peace of mind

Perhaps the biggest benefit of all, professional and versatile close protection services provide unrivalled peace of mind for their clients, reducing their mental load and allowing them to enjoy public outings.

  • The threat of attacks is reduced

If the threat is reduced, or removed, clients can meet the public and the media and complete their daily tasks without concern for their safety.

  • There is a quick response to changing risks

Close protection staff that are versatile and respond quickly allow their clients to relax and make or change plans as their schedules need.

  • Protecting property or belongings

It is quite common for VIPs to carry very valuable or important items with them when they travel and as part of their day-to-day duties, close security staff can also protect these items from loss or theft.

  • Dispersing crowds and fans

Although they often mean well, large crowds of fans and media can quickly become a crush if they are allowed to come too close to clients.

For this reason, close protection staff can either keep crowds away entirely or support one-to-one meetings.

  • Maintaining client freedom

Thanks to public interest or their professional position, many VIPs find it hard to maintain the feeling of freedom because they are always monitored and checked up on.

Close protection officers can offer these people the feeling of freedom while they travel and keep them safe from harm.
