VIP Protection Program
Our VIP protection program is considered one of our flagship services we offer in the executive protection industry. We provide ’round the clock protection to ensure a consistent level of protection without being over imposing taking away from convenience. That perfect balance between safety and convenience is what we strive for when implementing our VIP Protection Program.
We provide a fully customizable program that meets every need of the client that is consistent, always present but not intrusive allowing clients to feel relaxed and free.
Program Protection Manager (PPM)
Our PPMs are experts in security design. They are usually hired from within PMV moving up from their experience as a Team Leader running a Close Protection Team (CPT) or managed by a senior PPM. This gives them the expertise and experience they need to identify all risks and develop an operational plan to successfully mitigate all the risk factors. Our PPM’s from the start will assess the clients risks and through our proven risk matrix will assign a category level of operation detailing measures being implemented to mitigate each risk factor. From there the PPM will obtain any custom preferences desired by the client.
The initial planning phase consists of 3 major parts:
The main focus of any PPM when designing an operational plan is properly identifying risk. The early stages of operational planning are essential to ensuring that all risks are properly identified. Our Logistics/Research Team (LRT) will work alongside the PPM to ensure a client’s background has been properly vetted and all risks identified, classified, and mitigating protocols implemented.
PMV Security Group has a set of standard risk categories we will assign a client to. We won’t publicly disclose measures, equipment and tactics involved with each category but only a general designation providing the meaning behind the designation.
The following risk categories will be assigned by our PPM:
- CAT I: Significant danger. [Not IF an attack will occur but WHEN an attack will occur]
- CAT II: Some Danger. [Not WHEN an attack will occur but IF an attack will occur]
- CAT III: No Likely Threats Identified as Danger. [Not expecting targeted attack but an opportunist or “lone wolf threat” may present itself]
- CAT IV: Lowest Risk [This is assigned to routine protection. May have had past threats but no longer any threats presented as risk or likely danger during operation]
The second portion of the planning phase our PPM will begin designing the security concept. The security concept provides a general overview of what will be used to mitigate the risks identified in the matrix and methods used for execution.
Looking at the pyramid above the PPM will design an outline of what and who will be used during the next portion of the planning phase this will be detailed much more specifically in the operational plan.
Encompassing Protection Program
The second most important piece of the puzzle we focus on is being able to customize every aspect of our program to provide accurate, detailed, and most importantly fluidity. We want our operations to be smooth, efficient but also convenient. We provide that balance between security & convenience.
The operational plan is the final piece to our planning phase. The PPM will detail operational dates, times, procedures, execution protocols, logistical operations, medical and other details will be outlined pulling the security concept as an outline and ensuring all risks identified previously in the Risk Matrix are mitigated. The client must agree to the operational plan before it can be approved.
What can be customized?
There are a wide range of features that can be added or removed. Typically for clients who don’t want to have to think about protection we will implement security protocols based on the risk matrix assessment and a certain category classification will be assigned. We won’t publicly detail what those protection methods include for each category.
The client has the ability to customize various details such as:
- Type of vehicles
- Type of Lethal & Non-Lethal Weapons
- Clothing Attire of Protection Team
- Close Protection Teams
- Surveillance Teams
- Special Equipment: Night Vision, Security Drones, Thermal Cams, Body Cams, Knife & Firearm Vests, Communication Equipment, RF Jammers and much more.
As long as our PPM and the operational Team Leader in charge during the operation agree to any customizations we will adjust any aspects of the operation.
Note: During the operation if the Team Leader authorize changes to certain operational aspects but if it is an unscheduled change and the Team Leader disagrees due to safety concerns please comply as you may be risking your life or others around you. You’re entrusting us with your safety and well being. We want to protect you as best and conveniently as possible but if the TL determines it is too high of a safety risk please comply with their instructions. To avoid this it is best to be as descriptive as possible during the planning phase to avoid arbitrary changes during the operation.
