Executive Protection

ACT provides executive protection, also referred to as close protection to high profile individuals, corporate clients, families or individuals who are under threat. Services range from a single guard escorting an individual for a specific event to a multi guard, multi vehicle, protection team accompanying a client 24 hours a day.

  • ​​​​​An ACT representative can meet in person or virtually with either the client or representative to discuss the client's itinerary.
  • A Threat Assessment will be performed to identify any direct or potential threats. We will notify local and state law enforcement of our itinerary as needed.

  • ACT will initiate a Pre-Operation Advance which will include site surveys of the airport, hotel, and all scheduled venues. A route survey will determine pinch points, possible surveillance posts and ongoing or scheduled road construction. With this information, we can present the client or representative, the number of guards we believe will be required, the number and type of vehicles and any other particulars the client has required. 

  • ACT guards are trained in standard security protocol, customer service and the clients specific needs and concerns. ACT guards also train in defensive driving, route planning, surveillance/counter-surveillance, de-escalation and use of force.

  • Based on client request, ACT can provide uniformed site security at desired venues.
  • ACT understands that discretion and professionalism is paramount.
  • For further information, please contact Scott Jenkins at 508-523-5105 or sjenkins@actprotectiveservices.com
