Close protection

Galahad Associates prides itself on providing bespoke security solutions that are designed to allow businesses and individuals to move safely and conduct a full range of activities regardless of the environment they are operating in.

The success of Galahad Associates’ close protection service is founded on our philosophy that security should be as unobtrusive as possible, and that control measures must be commensurate with risk. This approach allows for a measured response to our clients’ concerns allowing them to successfully conduct their business in a safe and efficient manner.

Our experienced personnel will provide a level of support wholly based on relevant intelligence and ground studies, in depth threat assessment, advance planning and perhaps most importantly by listening to the needs, work practices and wishes of our clients.

The close protection teams deployed by Galahad Associates are comprised of highly experienced and professional operatives who have protected an array of clients, including royalty, heads of state, business leaders and celebrities.

The vast majority of our team members come from specialist military or police backgrounds and have been trained to the highest level in a wide range of skills, from first line medical care and defensive driving to protocol and client liaison.


Residential Security

His or her home is the one place in which everyone should feel secure. With the rise of residential vandalism, theft, aggravated burglary and even kidnapping there is a growing concern for home safety.

Galahad Associates understands the security concerns of our clients, but we also realise that security at a residence must be discrete, unobtrusive and considerate to the fact that it is first and foremost a family home.

Every residential security solution provided by Galahad Associates will be based primarily on the wishes and lifestyle requirements of our clients, coupled with in depth and comprehensive security and vulnerability surveys of the residence.

Venue & Event Security

Finding security that combines a high level of protection without compromising the nature and spirit of the event or venue can be a challenge for organisers. Galahad Associates can assist by providing a holistic solution centred on discrete, professional and co-operative security personnel.

After an extensive on site needs analysis and dialogue with event organisers or facility managers, we will provide an individually customised service. Whether it’s a wedding, party, AGM or awards ceremony, our teams will be low key, whilst still maintaining a smart and reassuring security presence.


Protective and Counter Surveillance

Most hostile acts, from low level crime to highly organised kidnap and ransom plots will be preceded by some form of surveillance activity. Use of effective counter surveillance is the best and sometimes the only way to detect and prevent these acts whilst they are still in the planning stages.

Using an in depth knowledge of surveillance techniques developed at the highest levels in military and government specialist units, Galahad Associates’ Counter Surveillance teams can work independently or in conjunction with a close protection team to provide detailed intelligence on suspected criminal or enemy threats.

As well as the detection of criminality, surveillance can also be a used as a benign means of sensitively providing protection to an individual without their knowledge.
