The term VIP Security, or Close Protection (Executive Protection in the US) can evoke many different images. But what does it really involve?
People engage this kind of service for many reasons. Businesses sending their employees to hostile environments will often use PPO’s (Personal Protection Officers) to accompany these employees as a “duty-of-care”. Celebrities and professional sports stars will use PPO’s to protect them and their family’s privacy. After all, no-one wants a “less than flattering” photo appearing in the media.
