Our Templar Division is our Executive and Personal Protection arm of CIS.
Executive Protection (EP) also known as Close Personal Protection or Body-Guarding refers to security measures taken to ensure the safety of VIPs or other individuals who may be exposed to elevated personal risk because of their employment, celebrity status, wealth, associations or geographical location.
Executive protection is its own highly specialized field within the private security industry. Our elite Executive Protection professionals (aka “agents”) have specialized training in executive protection, driving, first aid, and marksmanship.
The term Executive Protection was coined in the 1970s by the United States Secret Service when they created the Executive Protection Service to guard visiting foreign dignitaries.
The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004 (aka HR-218) does not serve as a license for off-duty law enforcement officers to provide Executive Protective services. Hiring unlicensed, uninsured protection services, including those offered by off-duty law enforcement officers, creates direct liability for the client. Agents must be employed by duly licensed and bonded agencies such as CIS.
As a duly licensed and bonded Private Detective Agency our firm offers Executive Protection
Protective measures may include home security systems, bodyguards, armored vehicles and vehicle scramble plans, mail screening, private jet travel,background checks for other employees, and other precautions.
Executive Protection may also provide security for immediate and/or extended family members to prevent kidnapping and extortion.
