Close Protection (CP) Roles & Responsibilities
Close Protection Operators (CPOs) deploy to dangerous locations and live and work for long periods in highly challenging conditions. The Principal (VIP) and close protection team members must always maintain the highest standards of professionalism and self-discipline. Maturity, secrecy, discretion, and operational security are a must, as, at times, you are previewed to high-level conversations that may dictate future policy, law, or operations.
