VIP Protection ImageVIP Protection / Bodyguarding

Strikes, political unrest, community protests, crime … and so the list goes on. These are all factors that add to the risk portfolios of executives, travellers, entertainers and your own family.

D & K Management Consultants provides specialist VIP protection services. Our highly trained and experienced Close Protection Officers (CPO’s) are deployed to assignments both locally and abroad.

D & K’s CPO’s do not regard themselves as ‘bodyguards’ but rather executive protection specialists. Our members operate on a principle of ‘always present but seldom noticed’.

The image of a ‘bodyguard’ wearing a dark suit and black sunglasses does not sit well with the men and women of D & K’s elite close protection teams. These absolute professionals firmly believe that the criteria for successful VIP protection is based on solid planning – advanced preparations, route reconnaissance,threat assessments and conflict avoidance.

With 18 years of executive protection experience, we have learnt that our clients value discreet, well managed protection over robust, overbearing ‘bodyguards’.

Our VIP Protection services provide a holistic approach to close protection. Essentially, this means that every conceivable aspect that could or would impact on the health, wealth, reputation and safety of our client (principal), is dealt with in a suitable manner. Transportation, routes and destinations are carefully analysed and all conceivable risks are identified and adequate plans are made and put in place. Residential and hotel security is considered and, where needed, the principal is advised.

It is important to point out that ‘bodyguarding’ is, in fact, a very loose term used to describe a practitioner. However, CPO’s operate on many different levels. In a professional environment, CPO’s develop their skills in areas of preferred expertise. Essentially, this would mean that no one ‘bodyguard’ is an absolute expert in all the levels/fields of close, personal protection.
