Well there are many different reasons why one would need to hire close protection officers for security, it just depends on a number of different things.
Who will the Close Protection Officers be protecting?
Where will the Close Protection Officers be working?
What will the Close Protection Officers be guarding?
When will the Close Protection Officers be needed?
These are the 4 most important questions one would need to ask the client when requesting close protection services. The answers to these questions can than give the close protection officer an idea into how he will plan and execute the job.
Each client has specific needs and therefore no 2 jobs are the same in the close protection industry. This is why close protection officers are highly-skilled and are normally fluent in more than 1 language which is always helpful.
The most common job for a close protection officer would be a personal bodyguard and more than likely the client would want the bodyguard to live at the clients home and act as a residence security officer. Residential Security Teams have become really popular in the last few years as many high-profile celebrities have had their houses raided and their families have been traumatized.
The client also normally expects the bodyguard to act as an executive chauffeur and drive the client around and ensure his safety at all times. But the duties of a personal bodyguard are not related to driving the client. For security drivers in London, clients need to contact the close protection agency and contract a professional close protection London chauffeur. This can also be helpful when stuck in traffic as Close Protection Officers always have backup plans and know what would be best for the client at all times.
