“Our Close Protection Services utilise former British Intelligence Officers, in support of highly skilled former UK Special Forces personnel”

International Close Protection Services

The continent of the Americas is vast. It includes a rich tapestry of cultures and from the richest countries in the world, to some of the poorest. Intelligent Protection International Close Protection Services are very much based on intelligence and cultural understanding. It makes things much easier when you have local knowledge and an understanding of the area and its people.

As with all of our Close Protection Services within the Americas, we are able to offer in support the following services:

  1. Technical Surveillance Counter Measures (TSCM)
  2. Counter Surveillance
  3. Protective Surveillance
  4. Security Trained Drivers
  5. Intelligence Gathering
  6. Personal Medical Officers

North America
Like much of the continent of the Americas, the USA have its issues with gun crime, car-jackings and drugs.

Our Close Protection Services for North America are based very much on intelligence and as with all of our services, tailored to our clients' requirements. Intelligent Protection International has experience at working with its clients, including, private families and corporate entities; our aim remains the same, to keep clients safe.

Within the USA and Canada, Close Protection activities are regulated often from State to State or Province to Territory, meaning things can get quite complex. Some States allow the covert carry of firearms, whilst others are reluctant to do so. Part of our job is to understand the laws that govern our services and to take that worry away from you. Please contact us to discuss any requirement that you might have regarding Armed Close Protection.

Risk and Analysis
Intelligent Protection International Limited is very proud to have its own intelligence cell, providing up-to-date security advice based on real-time intelligence. Information that is easy to use and very much "at-a-glance"; our "Country Briefs" include live security and terror related news, live interactive mapping and emergency contact information. For more information see: Country Briefings North America and Country Briefings South America.

Executive Services
For some clients, a more “Executive” service is suited, often working closely with the client “family office”. This sort of Executive Protection is tailored to suit the business user. Executive Protection involves providing a team and covering all aspects of security and logistics in support of our clients work and private lives.

Latin America
South or Latin America, a cocktail of cultures, from the business areas and cafes of Argentina, to the favela (ghettos) of Brazil and the snow-capped peaks of the Peruvian Andes. It's a vast and interesting place.

The security issues very much differ from country to country within Latin America, some countries are extremely violent and lawless. In these countries, we often take a more covert approach to our Close Protection Services, favouring to not draw attention to ourselves or our client.

The logistics of operating in some Latin American countries can be quite challenging to say the least. To this end, we are often asked to prepare country briefs to ensure that our clients are armed with all the facts on local customs and any on-going security concerns.

Our Services in Latin America include:

  1. 24 Hour Close Protection
  2. Secure Transportation
  3. Intelligence and Threat Monitoring
  4. Cultural Advice

The option of Armed Close Protection is available in some South American countries, each is very different and can differ from area to area.

The Caribbean Region
Intelligent Protection International holds vast experience across the islands of the Caribbean Region, from the Bahamas in the North, to the Turks and Caicos Islands to the South.

Again, just like much of Latin America, the Caribbean Region differs vastly as you travel. Some islands have very bad internal security issues, with extreme violence and drug gangs. Considerations such as; kidnap, armed robbery, rape and murder are common and very much daily occurrences.

Our approach is very much tailored to suit the country and our clients' activities. It is not uncommon for our clients to mix business with pleasure, or to island hop. We cater for all client requirements and are happy to advise on logistics or medical concerns prior to travel.

VIP services at airports?

We can supply VIP services at a number of International Airports. This includes VIP Suite or Private Lounge and of course, Protection from Paparazzi.

Available only to Private Air, First-Class or Business-Class arrivals and departures

What about the cost?

Clients do need to be realistic and often have expectations managed. Close Protection (supported by logistics) in Latin America for example, is going to be expensive. However, you may only get it wrong once! What we do, is ensure that we offer value for money every time, matched with quality of service.

What about medical cover?

All of our operatives are qualified to a minimum of FPOSi, a British qualification. They would also have received training during their Military Service, many to a very high level.

All of our operatives carry first aid or trauma packs as standard, with larger packs in our vehicles.
