Close Protection from experts

Why choose an NSI approved company?

NSI approved companies operating in compliance with British Standard for Close Protection Services (BS 8507) ensure a structured approach to confidentiality, threat analysis and protection. They always employ close protection officers who have been trained to the SIA (Security Industry Authority) Level 3 Certificate for working as a close protection operative.

They will have attended training modules amounting to 140 hours and taken and passed the subsequent exam. Not only are officers trained to exacting standards for a range of key tasks from journey management to law and legislation and reconnaissance, they will also understand your requirements and those of your family. Don’t forget to ask about the level of professional indemnity insurance held by the company.


Why use a close protection or bodyguard service?

Close protection services reduce the risk of threats to the person or people being protected. Typically a close protection officer (sometimes referred to as a bodyguard or a residential security guard) protects an individual and or family members from assault, kidnapping, stalking, loss of confidential information and other threats.
