Discover The Benefits Of Armed Executive Protection Officers

Armed Executive Protection Officer

With an increased threat of global security, an armed executive protection officer can be imperative to the threat of imminent danger, crisis management, and providing an immediate response during an emergency. In fact, an armed protection officer has higher qualifications than entry-level security personnel. First, let's discuss the role of an armed executive protection officer and then we'll touch on why they're an imperative source of protection for large or high profile clients. 

What Is an Armed Executive Protection Officer & What Do They Do 

An armed executive protection officer provides close protection (i.e. physical protection) with a firearm. Efficient and high-quality support are important to the welfare and assets of their clients. They're expected to use their training and experience to deflect the possibility of immediate danger, a kidnapping, or unauthorized access by an intruder. If necessary, using a weapon is a part of their attempt to secure their client or group. 

Why You Should Consider an Armed Executive Protection Officer 

If you're a high profile client, having an armed executive protection officer can help you restore your life to normalcy. A single encounter of violence or kidnapping can be avoided with their right protection. In fact, armed executive protection meets the needs of:

  • Extremely powerful individuals 
  • High profile people 
  • Celebrities 
  • Government officials 
  • Successful people with influence 

Privacy  

If you're a public figure and need your privacy, an armed executive officer can meet your needs. They have the experience to keep overzealous, greedy photographers, and nosy people from occupying your personal space. Their skills can go a long way towards providing you with the protection you need to lead a private life. 

Personal Protection 

In an unpredictable society, many high profile people need personal protection to avoid danger or a threat. An armed executive officer provides you protection against any type of danger. In fact, they can also protect your value personal property. For instance, if you're carrying valuables from one location to another a experienced executive officer can help. 

Deter Criminal Activity 

The appearance of an armed security officer can often times deter criminal activity or a threat. Most criminals look for an easy opportunity to commit a crime.

What Are the Signs That You Need to Get Executive Protection?

Executive Protection for a business executive

There are many cases in which a business executive might need protection. If you're dealing in something valuable and you need to carry it from one location to another, you'll feel a lot safer if you have a security officer with you. Or if you're doing some research which might be valuable to the competition, you might want to have a security officer present at all times to make sure that that research doesn't leave your premises.

Plus, there are times when high-level executives themselves become the victims of kidnapping because it might be valuable to other people to have them out of the way and also because this is profitable for kidnappers who ask for ransom.

Dealing with Extraordinary Situations

If you are a business executive who is feeling the need for security in any way, remember that it's always better to be safe than sorry. Even if it turns out that there is no attack or no attempt at stealing whatever you might be carrying, you'll just breathe easier knowing that there is a trained person next to you who will be able to deal with the situation.

Nine times out of ten, there might not be any danger to you or whatever you're carrying but the tenth time, there might be. It's in order to deal with this extraordinary situation that people get executive protection.

Signs That You Need Executive Protection

As an executive, you need to consider your position. Would getting you out of the way, even temporarily, benefit someone else? Maybe a rival executive at a different company or an organization which is opposed to what your organization is doing? If there have been any threats against you or your company or a lot of dissent about some research you might be doing, then it's a good idea to consider getting executive protection.

Qualities of a Good Security Officer: Politeness, Authority, and Alertness

good security officer taking her place

Everyone wants their special event to go smoothly. You might be organizing a music concert, a wedding, a charity gala or a fashion show. In each case, you're going to have a number of people attending the event which makes it necessary for it to be organized and directed. You can do this with the help of special events security.

Security Helps You to Focus on Your Job

When you're backstage making sure that the performance goes smoothly or that the vows are said without a hitch, you can't be bothered about organizing everyone who's attending the event also. This job can be delegated to your security team.

Qualities of a Good Security Officer

You need security officers who have experience working at this kind of event. Not only should a security person be appropriately dressed and recognizable as someone in charge, but they should also direct people with confidence and authority. These are the marks of a good security officer.

Speaking Politely but Authoritatively

When security officers direct people to form a single line or to show their invitations/tickets, they need to do so politely but assertively. If a security officer starts shouting at the lines of people waiting for an event, it actually becomes difficult to take them seriously. At the same time, it is difficult to take someone seriously if they are difficult to hear. So speaking at the right volume, remaining polite and yet being authoritative is necessary for a special events security officer.

Being Alert in Case of Security-Related Issues

A security officer also needs to be alert in case there is any trouble at the event. The trouble could be as small as someone who doesn't want to wait in line or someone who is trying to gatecrash the event. A good security officer will be able to herd such a person to the side and send them on their way without making a scene. And if there is a more serious type of issue such as a fire, a security officer will be able to help people leave the event without stampeding and getting injured.
