Close Protection

The primary objective of a Close Protection Operator (CPO) is to ensure their Principle (Client) is kept safe from any unwanted attention or physical harm. It is vital for all CPO’s to remain vigilant and ready to react to any arising situation before it ever affects the client or their reputation in any way.

Threats can come from a wide range of sources depending on the client’s status, public profile or geographical location. Threat levels will always vary for each client, as no two people are the same. Depending on the client’s situation and circumstances these threats may come in the form of stalkers, over enthusiastic fans, to more serious concerns such as kidnapping and ransom, political opponents or even terrorist organisations.

Iron Crest Protection will conduct a full extensive threat and risk assessment for you prior to any engagement. This enables us to give you an honest and accurate security report outlining the type of protection detail that will best suit your needs and concerns. Iron Crest Protection takes every scenario into account. In the unlikely event of a situation arising, we have emergency security protocols in place that have been tried and tested operationally to secure you within in minutes, eliminating any harm or risk to you.
