The security of VIPs encompasses a wide range of factors. The VIP’s physical security is one of the most crucial. They should be kept safe at all times and protected from potential harm.
GM GROUP specialises in personal security, VIP, event and party security, missing person investigations and static security guards. A common concern with all VIP security is the question of how it works.
We have simplified the answers to the questions into three categories.
The possibility of vulnerabilities that compromise consumer security exists when people leave for a cause. For such travels, VIPs hire security guards out of fear. Along with preventing immediate danger, security guards also have to make sure that every consumer is secure and away from any possible consequences of fabricated, hidden motives and inform the appropriate staff committees or clients. Have you ever witnessed a man fling himself into a queue or fire a shot to defend a customer? Yes, this is the situation that security guards face. Staff safety comes first, followed by everything else.
As the name suggests, static protection is standby protection. The calmness of the guards gives them more time to think critically and to be watchful. Over time, the need for static defence has increased significantly due to an increase in VIPs and celebrities attending events. Where security is a top priority, our security forces will take every precaution to reduce both common and uncommon potential threats. The static guard team performs a range of tasks, such as keeping an eye on security cameras, documenting any suspicious behaviour of locals, protecting VIPs and clearing paths away from crowds.
