At Echelon, your protection and safety is our highest priority. Our Philadelphia armed security guards are trained and equipped to protect your people or property at any time of day or night, 365 days a year.
Our Philadelphia armed security guards are properly certified to carry firearms while on duty, according to state regulations. All of our armed security guards must observe a strict corporate policy that requires annual training and recertification.
We also maintain a specially trained Philadelphia armed personal protection team to safeguard VIPs, dignitaries, executives, and celebrities. Depending on the nature of the risk or threat, your situation may require more than one Philadelphia armed security guard to effectively manage your protection requirements.
If you’re a VIP, celebrity, athlete, dignitary, or executive, you can’t take any chances with your personal protection. We are far more than a bodyguard service because we can help you develop a comprehensive security and protection plan that includes skilled armed guards.
As highly trained problem-solvers, our agents offer close personal protection in combination with surveillance, coordination with local law enforcement, and advanced planning. Our armed guards include members of veteran law enforcement, high-level government security specialists, and the military.
Body If you’re in the public eye, you know that at any moment your safety can be directly or indirectly affected. An armed bodyguard needs to be a deterrent, but in a harmful situation they must know how to react. When an everyday situation becomes life-threatening, only a dedicated agent who has been properly trained can protect you against an unforeseen calamity or a determined threat.
An armed guard offers you peace of mind, so that you can go about your daily business without worrying about your personal security.
We recognize that the needs of our clients are a primary consideration. Celebrities, athletes, and VIPs want to work with agents capable of blending in without compromising security. This ‘seldom seen but always present’ philosophy must also be accompanied by hospitality. Friendly customer care is essential for any armed agent, especially with clients who need extra consideration.
Whether you need one armed guard or a team of agents working as one unit, providing short-term or long-term protection, we are more than willing to customize a plan that suits your needs and ensures your ongoing security.
We go to great lengths to make sure every armed security guard we employ is of the highest caliber, trustworthy, and capable. All of our personnel are fully vetted and certified before becoming a member of our team. Then we comprehensively train every armed guard to discreetly and efficiently confront challenges, anticipate potential threats, mitigate risks, solve potential problems, and de-escalate potentially harmful situations.
Being an armed guard requires a unique skill-set, and we ensure our personnel know how to maintain a clear head when confronted with a challenge so that they can implement protocols in response to any problem situation. All of our personnel must also maintain certifications and clearances that include:
Our armed guards must also be fully trained to handle weapons, and maintain these skills to better serve our clients.
