What Can Close Protection Services Do?

If you need that VIP treatment when it comes to security, you might immediately think of bodyguards. 

Many people wonder what the difference between close protection and bodyguards is. The terms are frequently used interchangeably, although there are subtle differences between the two.

Close protection refers to comprehensive security protection for individuals or groups who face higher degrees of risk. This might be due to their public profile, job, or another factor which means they’re more likely to be targeted. It is about not only physical protection but factors like risk assessments, planning and risk mitigation.

Here at Monarch Security Services, our close protection officers (CPOs) are trained professionals who accompany their clients in various situations to ensure their safety and security. They also deliver proactive measures to prevent security breaches and react effectively if any threat arises.

Meanwhile, bodyguards provide mainly just physical security to clients. In comparison, close protection provides a much wider range of security services. Bodyguards primarily accompany their clients on public appearances, when travelling, and in any situation where there’s potential risks.  They are trained in defensive tactics and may intervene if there is a threat to their client's safety.

Our close protection services are ideal if you want more comprehensive, individualised protection. 

To sum up, close protection is a comprehensive security service that includes elements of risk assessment, planning, and proactive security measures, whereas bodyguards primarily focus on physical protection. 

Nonetheless, in practice, the terms are often used interchangeably, and individuals or security companies may offer services under either label depending on their preferences or the specific needs of their clients.
