Close Protection consists of an individual or team primarily responsible for ensuring the safety of a principal and their family members. Known as close protection officers (CPO), or bodyguards in the US, these professionals are employed in a wide range of contexts, providing support to UHNWI, diplomats, royal dignitaries, royal families, celebrities, politicians, and other high-profile individuals. Security jobs entail continual risk assessment and the development of plans to minimise and respond to threats. Close protection professionals should be trained in First Aid (FPOSI) and have relevant qualifications such as a BTEC Level 3 Close Protection training and SIA Front Line Close Protection Licence.
While exact requirements depend on the principal’s needs, responsibilities may include 24/7 protection of principal and associates, travel planning, security of principal on foot and in transit, crisis intervention and management, liaising with authorities, communicating with family members and responding to medical emergencies. Often, they can also advise on security measures within the home, office and other regular locations.
You may wish to hire close protection for yourself or a family member for greater peace of mind at work, home or while travelling. A good CPO will be vigilant, discreet, and attentive to your safety at all times. They will have a sound understanding of security logistics in multiple contexts and advanced communication skills that enable them to function swiftly and effectively.
