Our SIA licensed Close Protection consultants possess the key qualities that have seen some of the world’s most recognisable faces and organisations engaging their services and expertise.
Close protection officers (CPOs), formerly known as bodyguards, protect clients (known as principals) from deliberate attack, accidents or unwanted attention. They are responsible for assessing security measures and providing discreet surveillance. Their work includes:
Threats to principals could come from a range of sources including terrorist organisations, political opponents, stalkers or over-enthusiastic fans. Their principals may also face acute dangers, such as kidnapping attempts. CPOs are often contracted to work for people in the public eye, including:
Specialist duties may include residential security, making sure the principal's premises are secure. Some CPOs may train to be chauffeurs, specialising in defensive and evasive driving.
Although much of a CPO's time can involve periods of inactivity, they must be constantly alert and ready to respond to a threatening situation. To achieve this, they liaise constantly with other security professionals. They may work in teams, using specialist communication equipment to maintain contact.
