At any moment your personal safety can be affected – directly or indirectly. While a bodyguard may act as a deterrent in many potentially harmful situations, only proper planning, training, and dedication can ensure protection in the face of a determined threat or unforeseen crisis.
As a VIP, incidents that could cause you harm or injury can occur at any moment. Depending on your profession or lifestyle, everyday situations can immediately become life-threatening, whether the threat is planned or opportunistic. For this reason, it’s vital to work with an experienced protection group who can provide professional bodyguards that offer you peace of mind to go about your day with confidence.
Quality protection from a team of bodyguards and security professionals should be discreet but always vigilant and present. This is accomplished through in-depth, advanced planning that assesses risk based on an analysis of transportation routes and itinerary, while still maintaining adaptability.
The needs of the VIP must also be a primary consideration, and most executives and celebrities prefer to work with bodyguards that can “blend in” while still providing unwavering protection. The bodyguard should also be capable of integrating hospitality into their service, providing friendly customer service to the client – even those who require extra care and consideration.
In today’s volatile security environment, the qualifications of your bodyguards matter. At Echelon Protection & Surveillance, we deploy specially trained and certified VIP security professionals that include persons with veteran law enforcement, government security, and military experience to ensure your personal protection. These backgrounds provide them with the knowledge and real-world experience needed to handle your protection needs, in any situation and within any industry.
Whether you need short or long term personal protection, from one bodyguard or a team of agents working in tandem, we will customize a security plan that ensures your safety by minimizing your risk and liability while you go about your personal or business goals.
Every bodyguard hired by Echelon must meet exacting requirements to ensure they are of the highest caliber. You can be confident that your bodyguard was fully vetted and certified before being considered for our team. They are then trained specifically for Echelon by personal protection experts to discreetly and appropriately confront challenges, mitigate risks, anticipate threats, de-escalate potentially harmful situations, and solve any problems that may arise.
VIP security requires a unique skill-set, a clear mind, strategic planning, and an in-depth knowledge of the protocols needed to supply a proper response to challenging security situations. Our bodyguards must be capable of remaining professional in the most difficult situations, while still managing the expectations of the VIP. They must also be able to make decisions as circumstances warrant, while still working within the parameters laid out in advance by the client, and detailed in pre-deployment planning that outline what is required of each bodyguard.
Our bodyguards maintain many clearances and certifications that may include:
Armed bodyguards are fully trained and certified to carry weapons, and we will work with you to develop detailed security protocols that fit seamlessly with your lifestyle and the unique needs of your profession or industry.
The experts at Echelon Protection & Security will work directly with you to fully develop a comprehensive protection plan that anticipates potential issues and maximizes the safety of the VIP. Each bodyguard is a member of the team, and will be fully informed regarding their specific duties. We take special care to ensure that the bodyguard’s directives are custom tailored to the level of risk associated with the client, and that each has the necessary training to do their job effectively.
VIP protection experts comprising a security team may include a driver, a close-protection bodyguard who acts as an escort to the VIP, and members of subordinate units that handle threat management. Additional bodyguard support may conduct background investigations of people that may interact with the client, and advance sweeps of areas into which the VIP is travelling. Each member of the professional VIP security team will be discreet, professional, diligent, and fully capable of handling unforeseen issues within the parameters laid out by the client.
Our comprehensive list of bodyguard and executive protection services include:
We make it possible for you to fully customize a security package that specifically meets your personal VIP protection demands.

Whatever your need, we will work with you to coordinate VIP security personnel who are qualified to handle your protection.
This flexibility is unique in the security industry, and it allows you to optimize your executive security budget depending on your personal preferences and circumstances.
