Close Protection


Our close-protection operatives (CPOs) all hold the United Kingdom Security Industry Authority (SIA) Close Protection Licences and possess enhanced-life support skills (advanced first aid). Many speak second languages and are trained in the use and discreet carriage of firearms. (Firearms will only be carried lawfully and when the threat level warrants.)

Axien's CPOs have built their reputation on heightened threat awareness. Through bespoke training, our CPOs specialize in assessing situations and reducing risks before an event unfolds. They are ready to deploy at short notice.

All Axien CPOs are HM Forces- or Government-trained. We have accrued our experience through the provision of close-protection to the following:

  • UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office
  • UK Security Services
  • UK Royal Family
  • Diplomats
  • UK Ambassadors
  • Visiting royal families
  • Members of the HM Government Cabinet
  • Foreign Heads of States and other dignitaries

Our CPOs understand that executives and celebrities routinely, and sometimes unexpectedly, encounter fans, paparazzi, members of the public, protesters or disgruntled employees. The services of our CPOs are available around the clock and anywhere in the world.

Axien Security Limited has achieved the prestigious Kite Mark of quality from the British Standards Institute for Close Protection, satisfying the requirements of BS 8507-1:2008.
