keep clients safe from unwanted attention or physical harm. They are responsible for assessing security measures and providing discreet surveillance. Their work includes:

  • Protecting their clients from threats of physical violence.
  • Checking out premises, such as hotels, restaurants and theatres, before the client arrives.
  • Installing surveillance equipment.
  • Surveying the layout of venues, noting potential hazards and exposure to risks.
  • Accompanying the client on business and social trips.
  • Driving the client to and from venues.

Threats to clients could come from a range of sources including terrorist organisations, political opponents, stalkers or over-enthusiastic fans. Their clients may also face acute dangers, such as kidnapping attempts. CPOs are often contracted to work for people in the public eye, including:

  • High-profile business people operating in potentially hostile places.
  • Legal professionals, such as barristers.
  • Sports, music, film and TV celebrities, and their families.

Specialist duties may include residential security, making sure the client's premises are secure.

Some CPOs may train to be chauffeurs, specialising in defensive and evasive driving.

Although much of a CPO's time can involve periods of inactivity, they must be constantly alert and ready to respond to a threatening situation. To achieve this, they liaise constantly with other security professionals. They may work in teams, using specialist communication equipment to maintain contact.

Close protection officers work around their clients' schedule, which will vary depending on the length of contract and their clients' work and leisure activities. Offering 24-hour protection means that this is rarely a weekday nine-to-five job. It can involve early starts, potentially travelling, and late nights accompanying clients to functions.

CPOs work both indoors and at outdoor venues, such as rallies, political meetings, conferences and premieres. Public outings, such as shopping trips, can be arranged at short notice.

When on duty they spend long periods standing in a fixed security position, sometimes seated overnight outside a hotel room.

Many CPOs are self-employed and are recruited for short to long-term contracts by agencies. Most are paid an agreed daily rate.



Clement Shield will provide the training to acquire the skills needed for the job, including:



  • Introduction to the roles and responsibilities of the close protection operative.
  • Threat and risk assessment.
  • Surveillance awareness.
  • Operational planning.
  • Law and legislation.
