International Close Protection
“Our Close Protection Services utilise former British Intelligence Officers, in support of highly skilled former UK Special Forces personnel”
What is the purpose of close protection?
Close Protection is a security service aimed at primarily the protection of an individual or group for known or unknown threats. Close Protection is carried out by trained and certified operatives colloquially known as bodyguards. Examples of well-known people who have bodyguards include the Queen of England and the President of the United States of America. It is not uncommon for Hollywood stars, Music artists or Ultra-High-Net-Worth-Individuals to have bodyguards.
The skills that a professional bodyguard should possess include advance driving, first aid and a broad knowledge of security related issues and threats, additionally he or she may have training in firearms and be licensed to carry firearms as part of their Close Protection duties.

Our clients range from Governments, foreign Royal Families and Fortune 500 companies to private individuals. Every client is different, every close protection task is different, language and lifestyle considerations are of course always taken into account. Female operatives can be supplied to suit any family needs and/or situations where children are involved. For Royalty Protection, see: Royalty Protection Services.
Close Protection has evolved over the last decade, into what is now a more refined service; Bodyguards now have internationally recognised qualifications and a standard level of overall training. Intelligent Protection International Limited has added military operation and management skills services to enhance those Bodyguard services.

Our Close Protection Services can be supplemented and supported by:
- Technical Surveillance Counter Measures (TSCM)

Most of our Close Protection Bodyguard Operatives are former members of British Army, Police or Intelligence Services. In-line with UK regulations, all of our Close Protection Bodyguards deployed within the UK, are qualified and hold SIA licenses.
How to Hire a Bodyguard
We understand that not everyone has experience at hiring a Bodyguard and that you might not know where to start or what questions need asking. Our "How to Hire a Bodyguard" guide may prove very helpful in your decision making. See: How to Hire a Bodyguard
Our approach to international work is that all our operatives are at the very least bilingual and very often, trilingual. We are one of the only private security companies who specializes in operatives that are multilingual.
In late 2015, we invested heavily in our own Internal Intelligence Team, providing up-to-date "Travel Advice" and risk reports that aid clients when travelling internationally. The reports aid decision making, provide an at-a-glance analysis and more importantly, offer emergency contact details, a live security and terror related news feed and live interactive mapping. For more information, see: Travel Advice
Advanced Close Protection
Due to the level of threat or area of operations, sometimes clients require a higher level of protection. Our network is such, that we can supply former members of British Special Forces (SAS/SBS) or former Police Officers from Diplomatic (SO6) and Royalty Protection (SO14).
