Executive Protection Americas - overview
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 and travel advice based on real-time intelligence. Information that is easy to use and very much "at-a-glance"; our "Travel Advisories" include live security and terror related news, live interactive mapping and emergency contact information. For more information see: Travel Advisories North America and Travel Advisories South America.
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.
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:
- 24-Hour Close Protection
- Secure Transportation
- Intelligence and Threat Monitoring
- 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.
