Services

We are the industry leader in high-profile event and personal security protection.

EXECUTIVE AND PERSONAL PROTECTION

We specialize in personal protection for the diplomatic, entertainment, and corporate worlds with tactical skills and services tailored to meet the unique needs of every client. Our sensitivity, discretion, and tactical assets have made us the number one security firm with entertainment and Fortune 500 clients looking for comprehensive solutions to complex security and protection scenarios.

SPECIAL AND MAJOR EVENT SECURITY

We provide the highest level of access control and crowd management to political events, award shows, major movie premieres, charity functions, and concerts. Site agents work as liaisons to local and federal law enforcement and city officials ensuring a problem free event. We complement our protection with city permitting and all front of house production needs.

 

Our security teams possess the technical skills and experience needed to offer additional protection measures such as diplomatic safety and location-specific security.

DIPLOMATIC PROTECTION

Our expertise with personal protection and access to local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies has enabled us to lead and manage the protective details for politicians, political candidates, and diplomatic personnel, including the protection of their families. Prior to being secured by the U.S. Secret Service, our team handled all protection for Democratic presidential candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders.

SECURE GUEST CHECK IN SERVICES

We provide the most secure technology method for guest check in, eliminating the chance for unwanted people to copy and steal highly confidential guest lists. Our services include supplying check in staff, secure iPad check in, and encrypted software, the same support technology used by the several U.S. government agencies, ensuring discretion, fast guest flow, and a top level of privacy for your event.

RESIDENTIAL SECURITY

We provide security details at high-risk residences where regular patrols closely monitor, screen, and review all security threats. Our residential security and protection consists of dedicated close camera surveillance systems to watch over large perimeters, providing emergency evacuation assessment and action plans for families and residents in case of terrorism, fire or intruders, and security teams handpicked by our clients to seamlessly integrate with daily lives.

TECHNICAL SECURITY

Our state of the art technical expertise and equipment is an invaluable asset to all of our clients and incudes certified canine bomb detection teams, walk through and hand held metal detectors, portable closed circuit surveillance and camera systems, radio and communication devices, and counter surveillance visual and audio devices specialized to measure, detect, and neutralize audio and visual bugs/cameras for offices and residences.

HOUSES OF WORSHIP

With the threat of terrorism at an all-time high we are working with several houses of worship providing security assessments, inner and outer perimeter protection, routine vehicle checks, bomb detection teams, and magnatometers to discretely screen congregants and guests and ensure their safety.
