Bodyguard Services London have a very well earned reputation when it comes to Protective Services. Our Personal bodyguards and Close protection officers are viewed as some of the best in the business. We have many years of experience in the protection industry and have built up a great trust and rappor with our clients, We do this by ensuring that our clients security needs are met and delivered in a way which always surpasses industry standards. With this experience we have grown and we have learnt a great deal. We have found ourselves in the past taking on new clients with excisting security measures in place, having assessed the clients ongoing security measures it has become obvious very quickly that initial assessments or audits were inadequate or simply far to much effectively costing the client far more than would be expected. When dealing with a security company it is important that they share with you information regarding their services and that the information they share is relevent to your needs. Any professional company will listen, advise and then give you realistic workable options however it should'nt stop there. It is at this point when you should ask questions. Asking questions is key to selecting not only the right service but also the right company. Below are some things to consider when dealing with security companies
Questions about protective services.
Examples of questions to ask.
- How long has your company been operating?.
- How do you select your bodyguards?.
- What type of selection process do your bodyguards have to undertake?.
- Are all of your bodyguards licenced?.
- What level of experience do your bodyguards have?.
- Can i view the CVs for any of your bodyguards?.
- What checks are carried out on your bodyguards?
- Are the bodyguards insured?
- Can you work to MY budget?
- What other roles can bodyguards fill?
- Do you have confidentiality agreements in place?.
- What if i do not get on with the bodyguard you supply?.
- What kind of communication methods are in place?.
- Can i meet the bodyguard before working with them?.
- Can i be party to interviews with the bodyguard?.
Of course this list is not exhaustive by any means but it is designed to show you that you can and should ask questions. Any professional bodyguard will be more than happy to sit and discuss his or her level of training, their qualifications and the experiences they have. Bodyguards understand that the more confidence you have in them the more you will respond to requests they may make whilst employed to look after you, after all they are being employed to keep your personal safety and integrity intact so working together to acheive this is key.
