Our work is high-stakes and our clients require the best.

 
Although we’ve enjoyed traveling the world with actors, musicians, and politicians, much of our work is extremely demanding and grueling. A majority of our bodyguards work at a fulltime Command Center where they admit vendors, welcome guests, and monitor closed-circuit cameras, listening devices, and infrared beams, etc. The Command Centers are independent security offices built at our client’s estates or places of business. Providing 24-hour protective operations to our fulltime clients is our main focus, and we are searching for protectors who can adapt to any environment.

Although many of our entry-level security agents come from elite military units and have extensive protective experience, we will also consider protectors who are interested in learning our work.
