Can we supply female operatives?

Yes. Intelligent Protection has a vast network of operatives from around the world. Often clients with young families like to have the peace of mind that a gentle, more covert approach is being taken to their children's security. This is a role that lends itself well to female operatives.

Do we supply vehicles?

Yes. We have a number of partners that we work with. It's not just about supplying vehicles, it's more about the right vehicle and driver for the task at hand.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
