Close Protection


Integration into the clients business or existing team is paramount, with the ability to understand and effectively communicate at all levels and understand the subtleties required to work in a diligent and professional manner. All essentials and yet commonly overlooked skills that make Discreet Help and its Close Protection experts a little different to the norm. 

Our Close Protection experts have operated at the highest levels in many areas of the world including Baghdad, Mumbai, Casablanca, Paris, Istanbul and London amongst many others. Understanding the subtleties and having the soft skills to know and understand just what the client requires an affording the protection they deserve.



All of our teams are vetted SIA Close Protection licence holders, First Response medically qualified, with DBS background checks and a minimum of a decade of relevant experience. 

We also take training and professionalism of our operators very seriously, ensuring we have assessed their competency and suitability  before deployment and that they have been trained by a recognised and respected training company. 

Unfortunately the minimum standards employed by the regulators is not what we deem to be sufficient and we have extremely high standards that we expect all to attain.
