Close Protection or Body-Guarding, as it more commonly known, has been in existence in one form or another since early civilisation. In modern times Close Protection as we know it today used to be supplied by the military but more recently, by law enforcement units for dignitaries and high profile individuals for specific occasions/events. Private sector security companies now offer this type of service to the private sector and have built up a highly specialised offering using the techniques and specialism's adopted by the law enforcement services.
For certain high profile individuals and families close protection is a way of life and an irreplaceable asset to those individuals who require the service.
