Close Protection Officers work for a wide range of people and companies including people in the public eye, including royalty, foreign dignitaries, politicians, high-profile business people, high net worth individuals, legal professionals and celebrities.

Clients may need a Close Protection Officer to combat over eager autograph hunters for example or a stalker in addition to helping prevent criminal activities such as kidnap, ransom and robbery.

Additional specialist duties may include residential security, for example making sure the principal's premises are secure.

Duties a Close Protection Officer carry out range from chauffeur driving; specialising in defensive and evasive driving, to assistance with travel arrangements and booking restaurants for example.

  • Accompanying the principle on business and social trips
