“Protective Surveillance is offered to clients who require covert Close Protection Services, ideal for families, or in stalking cases”
What is 'Protective Surveillance'
Protective Surveillance is a covert method of carrying out Close Protection. It enables a principal or group to go about their daily routine without obtrusive protection, yet with the peace of mind that they are surrounded by a highly trained protective team.
This method is favoured by the British Royal family, who gives the impression that their protective detail is a lot smaller than it is. This type of method of Close Protection is useful for victims of stalking and for clients who do not wish to offend their hosts by looking overprotected.
How does 'Protective Surveillance' work?
Where a client might have two or three Close Protection officers within arms lenght and visible to passers by; with Protective Surveillance, only one bodyguard would be visible, with other bodyguards slightly further out, observing the client and any threats that may present themselves.
Protective Surveillance allows a lot more flexibility of using both male and female operatives, where if the client were for example a Middle Eastern Royal and therefore only normally has female bodyguards, male bodyguards could be put in the Close Surveillance role, bolstering the capability of the team.
