Close Protection Services

Valkyrie – Close Protection Services

Here at Valkyrie, we offer the services of Close Protection Officers (CPOs) or bodyguards as they are commonly known.  After leaving the police, I was a bodyguard for the Hollywood elite, celebrities and high net worth individuals (HNWI). Typically, my duties were driving to film premieres, evading paparazzi, security of the family home, shopping trips and school runs for the children.  The threat of attack against VIPs and high-net-worth individuals has risen and continues to rise. Therefore, hiring close protection officers is a necessity for many individuals and organisations across the world who need to protect themselves, their families and their assets.  Our clients benefit from the highest level of close protection security. Valkyrie’s CPOs and teams have extensive experience in close protection and many years of experience in security, surveillance and threat assessments.  CPOs are responsible for assessing security measures, providing discreet, low-key surveillance and protecting clients from threats of physical violence and harm.

From our Company HQ in Belgrave Square, London, Valkyrie provides Close Protection services (overt or covert) to a diverse range of domestic and international clients, including VIPs, High Net Worth Individuals, celebrities, Corporate Heads, and Family Offices. We understand that our client security requirements are individual and essential and we cater and plan for all of our clients’ needs.

Valkyrie also specialise in the movement (escorting) of high value goods in the UK, across Europe and further afield. This service can include security operators to follow vehicles, quick reaction teams, electronic tracking, asset protection and more. Valkyrie will prepare a plan, present and execute, with live updates as required.

Our CPOs can be deployed at short notice – individually or as part of a team. Our officers provide protection both in the UK and overseas.  Valkyrie’s diverse clients benefit from discreet, professional, reliable and trusted services. Our business has grown through recommendations and repeat business.

If you feel you require close protection services or would like an assessment, then please do not hesitate in contacting us. E: | T: +44 (0) 20 7499 9323
