Becomes a Close Protection Officer

As well as providing security in the home and workplace a close protection officer will also undertake operations to protect businesses, shops and public places from potential danger. These operations tend to involve high risk operations such as guarding the top level of a building against armed criminals, protecting banks and other large commercial centres from attack, protecting the wealthy from any potential embarrassment from having their picture taken by criminals and protecting the homeless from eviction. In some parts of the UK this job will also involve liaising between the police and the security services, so you could work as part of a team protecting a famous tourist destination like Westminster or helping to protect the royal household. As well as the extreme environment of the Fleet Street, there are many other challenges to this profession and although the physical demands are difficult, the rewarding opportunities are plentiful. The job involves close contact with the public and therefore very often you will be involved in operations involving the safeguarding of very important people such as the Queen or Prince William and may spend time behind the scenes protecting their lives.
