to popular belief the image and demeanour of the Protection Officer or Bodyguard
is not the one that is portrayed by Hollywood movies, where an Uzi toting, white
vested individual with a special forces super hero background, is the ultimate
deterrent and protector of life and moral values. On the contrary………
our professional opinion Close Quarter Protection is about mutual trust, total
commitment, absolute confidentiality and the professional ability and expertise
to carry out the task or assignment without compromise to the well being of
our Clients and their Business Affairs.
With this in mind we can provide Clients with two levels or
choices of Close Quarter Protection. They are as follows-:
The Protection Officers function is to provide a visible close
escort type of security for Clients. They will travel and escort the Client
when required to do so and remain in very close proximity to the Client, physically
protecting them from any situations deemed harmful to their personal well being
and evacuating the Client immediately to a safer environment until the situation
is either resolved or neutralized. Situations warranting this action can range
from media and press intrusion to any number of scenarios regarding attempts
of physical and psychological harm directed at the Client by a third party.
the VIP, Executive, Celebrity or any private individuals visiting or residing
in the UK, whether for business or pleasure or both we can provide suitable
Protection Officers, either on a one to one basis or with a fully supported
24hr protection team.
Depending on their requirements, the risk factors involved i.e. the reasons for them requiring Close Quarter Protection Security, we can assure Clients that they will be given a first class secure and safe service.
Carried out by Experienced, Professional
(SCO) has a very different role to the
primary function is take charge of the overall security of the Clients movements.
The SCO will know the hotels the Client will use, the drivers and vehicles they
will be using, the routes they will take and the venues they will be visiting
as well as the restaurants they will be dining at, this because the
would have made these arrangements prior.
Our SCO’s have an unrivalled knowledge in their field and are very
expedient at planning Clients movements in a secure, safe and cost effective

is second to none and can make all the difference when forward planning on behalf
We can provide this service to all Clients either separately or in conjunction with our Close Quarter Protection Service. Whatever their choice they can be assured of an Expedient, Professional, Safe and Highly Confidential service at all times.
