All our female operators are fully trained in the same skills as their male counterparts, as well as specialist planning and paediatric medical skills to complement their required operational medical courses. They can work independently or as part of a team.

The core of any security operation is the protection of the residence or locations deemed at risk. Its an often overlooked aspect of Protection provision , especially where the Principal has several homes or is away from the main home on a frequent basis.

The residence(s) must be subject to a detailed security survey that measures the risk, relative to the residence location, of those living in the property, of those visiting and the frequency and times at which the Principal(s) are present.
Our services are designed to work alongside household staff and to intrude as little into the pattern of life of our clients as possible.
