Personal Close Protection

Personal Close Protection

SEKURICO provides Close protection services in the United Kingdom, United States of America, South Africa, Colombia, Russia and the Baltic Countries as well as armed PSD services in the Republic of Iraq.

We utilise well-presented SIA approved and country equivalent globally, Male and Female Close Protection operatives with exclusively ex-military and police backgrounds. Close protection calls for a special kind of person and not every close protection qualified person is suited for the challenges it presents. All our services are tailor made to the client’s specific circumstances and requirements. The secret of a mature operation is the selection of operatives with common sense to best suits the family unit it is protecting, who have excellent training coupled with experience who can blend in without being intrusive to client’s daily routine.

We believe in using ex-military or armed Police officers who are on a different level than those that have not been exposed to the necessary training and experience in an armed conflict situation. It should be the benchmark for selection as a close protection officer. There is no substitution for the quality of training in the military or police, who have excellent situational awareness and can react in a manner to give any principal peace of mind.

There are too many non-military and Police close protection operatives in the United Kingdom and worldwide, trusted with the huge responsibility of protecting high value VIP Client’s. Most of the operatives with no experience can under- or over-react in threat situations’ which will inevitably be frowned upon and can lead to reputational damage to Clients and the companies they represent.

SEKURICO believes that a mature experienced officer with the necessary military and police background and reputable close protection company training, approved by the Security Standards Authority (SIA), who possess excellent diplomacy skills can benefit the reputation of Client’s and their respective security companies.

In selecting Close protection operatives for a family, security companies should be able to properly vet applicants. The market is overwhelmed by applicants from various countries, who makes it near impossible to vet them to a level where a company can feel comfortable, they have the right candidate and have a clean crime free background, especially where they are working for families with small children.

SEKURICO have operatives with a range of skills such as advanced medical training, being ex-military officers and police, excellent driving skills and can converse in different languages to suit the client. We are also convinced that client’s come to the United Kingdom to be looked after by citizens of the country and that is the reason SEKURICO is using mainly British operatives who we knew we could vet to a standard that we are convinced we have the best candidate for the task. The same is valid for our overseas operations where we have working agreements with host country SIA equivalent approved companies, performing duties in areas they know very well as well as knowing the law and regulations of their respective countries better.

Our operations have site specific standard operations documents for each VIP Residence, tailor made to the client’s requirements. Regular weekly meetings with the Person of Contact on each project is encouraged, to iron out problems that may arise as quick as possible. SEKURICO appoints a team leader for every different residence who are responsible for the day to day running of the operation selected for their exceptional people, managerial, emotionally mature and excellent security awareness skills. They are also responsible for a weekly or monthly report to the POC once its approved by the SEKURICO management.
