Just like any other country in Europe, France has a degree of security concerns, the cities can be dangerous with virtual no-go areas after dark. For up-to-date security and terror information, see our free travel risk report: France Travel Risk Report or for Paris specifically, see: Paris Travel Risk Report.
Our Close Protection Services for France are built on bilingual English-French operatives, all of whom are highly trained, experienced and all former Military or Police.
Close Protection in France is regulated by CNAPS; this is similar to the SIA in the UK, but is regulated at both company and staff level, therefore licensing is required by both. All of our Close Protection Operatives that carry out Bodyguard or security duties within France are registered with CNAPS and all have the relevant qualifications including First Aid qualifications.
Our Company CNAPS certification in France is: AUT-075-2116-05-17-20170601680-00
