Close Protection Officers

Keeping clients safe from unwanted attention or physical harm

Our Close Protection Officers come from both a police and military background and they have all worked at the highest levels of the services, proving their ability to work as an individual or as a team.

Ensuring your safety

Close Protection services provide you with an individual or team who are responsible for ensuring your safety.

Security Drivers International has considerable experience in corporate and private protective security in the UK and overseas. Our team of Close Protection Officers (CPOs) are highly professional and extremely competent in all situations, with each member able to make instant decisions when required.

Our operators have conducted Close Protection on behalf of the government, celebrities, music artists, Ultra High Net-Worth Individuals (UHNWIs) and their families throughout the UK and the world. We also have experience in Europe and the Middle East.

All our CPOs have relevant First Aid and Close Protection training and hold a SIA Front Line Close Protection Licence.


Security Surveys, Threat, Risk and Vulnerability Assessments

Our specialist team can provide security consultants or close protection officers to conduct pre-planning assessments and produce recommendations for any activity you wish to undertake or site you have under consideration. We can provide you reports for your consideration at various depths. We can also produce reconnaissance reports for international visits and accommodation stays. We keep people, property, assets and information safe, protecting against physical and technical attack. From an individual protection officer to full teams, the protection provided can be as discreet or high profile as you require.

Protective Surveillance

We can provide protection to you and your family without alerting anyone to our presence. This specialist covert provision of security is ideal for the protection of specific family members that might be reluctant to accept a security presence, or for sensitive business meetings where the presence of security might be detrimental to image.

Residential Security Teams

We can provide Residential Security teams for long term or short term contracts. We can have 24/7 security on your Residence, Hotel or Venue for as long as you require us. Relax and have peace of mind knowing that a highly trained Close Protection Officer is protecting you whilst you sleep.

Based at our Glasgow office, all operational requirements are handled by Craig Barton, an outstandingly qualified Close Protection Officer who has worked all over the world, including in many hostile environments.
