We have three core principals when it comes to Close Protection: all operations are built around security expertise, stringent planning and discretion. 


We understand the importance of having full trust in your security staff to alleviate stress and allow you to concentrate on your work schedule and/or enjoy your leisure time, worry-free. You need to be confident that those protecting you have the necessary skills and experience; that they can anticipate dangers and act accordingly to prevent them becoming a threat.

At 1st Class Protection we have some of the best, experienced security guards in the industry. The intensive training programme at our revered Training Academy includes lessons in Krav Maga, a form of military self-defence, and our officers come from an Armed Forces background, meaning they are equipped with the knowledge and experience of effectively protecting people and their assets. All guards hold the accredited SIA Licence and have had a DBS check; they are also fully trained in First Aid, providing extra reassurance in the case of emergency.

VIP and close protection packages.


As high net-worth individuals, who may live in London or are visiting from overseas, celebrities or people in the public eye, the potential for unwanted attention and real threats to your safety and the safety of those around you can be unpredictable and irrational. In today’s climate, Close Protection is an increasingly necessary security measure.

Our protection services are tailored according to your individual needs: we perform an initial risk assessment and take time to understand the level of involvement and expectations required; we tirelessly plan bespoke protocol and procedure around any eventuality imaginable for when you are in public and at home and we ensure that we are fully equipped to protect you at all times.


1st Class Protection officers are true professionals. All information we gather when designing your bespoke security package is strictly confidential. We understand the importance of your privacy and would never compromise that.

Apart from qualifications and experience we also think it important to recruit on the basis of personality and the ability to work well with people. It is particularly important in this area of security that guards are polite and personable so that the individuals and the families with which they work feel comfortable, especially if there are children at home or who also need protection in public. 

Our Close Protection package is designed around a combination of any or all of the following measures, depending on your needs:

* Body-guarding
* Manned guarding
* Advanced alarm systems
* Stringent access screening
* Professional chauffeurs
* Secured transport
* X-ray machines to scan post and packages
* CCTV monitoring
* Mobile patrols
