At Pinkerton, we believe that protective services are a fundamental part of a robust enterprise security ecosystem. Whether you need immediate protection or are planning for a future event, we can provide a thorough assessment of the situation and customize protection services that best fit your needs. Our protection services employ highly skilled assets that provide clients with anything from professional security drivers, to one-time personal protection for executives and assets, to fully-dedicated security personnel in-house via our Pinkerton Dedicated Professionals (PDPs), to global asset protection when facing unexpected catastrophes.

In addition to creating a high-level strategy to mitigate risks, we partner with you to implement solutions from start to finish. Our protection services are part of our "boots on the ground" - employing hands-on experience to ensure our clients' safety. We can help navigate your organization through risks in the marketplace by providing continuity between your strategic objectives and the implementation of tactical protections services.


Since our inception in 1850, we have worked with a wide array of organizations and people in different industries, business segments, and roles in different parts of the world. As a result, we have developed a deep understanding of the complexities of our clients' needs and risk profiles.

Protective services can fall into two categories - protection of people or property. Within these areas, Pinkerton has dedicated agents and technology that support the specialization and expertise needed to provide reliable personal protection around the world.


We provide more comprehensive executive protection security options than typical close protection services. We maximize our security offerings for those under our protection by delivering and incorporating the following:

  • Rapid agent deployment worldwide, 24⁄7
  • Threat analysis for advance preparations and planning
  • Real-time intel from a wide variety of global resources
  • Liaison with local authorities
  • Ability to alter plans/routes at a moment's notice
  • Highly-trained and experienced professionals
  • The ability to cater to the unique needs of VIPs & celebrities

Executives may need protection from a wide variety of nuanced threats, including workplace violence issues relating to security assisted layoffs, terminations, or disgruntled employees. Corporate leadership may need to travel to dangerous or unstable environments. No matter the situation, we have the solutions and experience to provide reliable protection for CEOs, Boards of Directors, and other corporate leaders. We help you create security strategies and detailed plans that deter and reduce threats. As needed, our executive protection services can include:

  • Security Surveys
  • Advance Team Deployment
  • Deployment of Qualified Agents
  • Logistics Coordination


We are a trusted resource for providing executive security drivers and reliable protection for a wide range of VIPs, including corporate executives, politicians, and entertainment giants. Our protective agents and drivers are thoroughly trained to transport VIPs safely to and from their destinations, nearly anywhere in the world.


Public figures face a variety of daily risks that may include stalkers, paparazzi, kidnapping schemes, corporate and political protesters, and more. Our residential security services deliver the expertise to manage and help prevent these kinds of risks at the homes of VIPs. In addition, our flexibility and scalability allow us to provide secure transportation and emergency services where and when you need them.


Fortune 1000 companies turn to us to investigate the presence of electronic "bugs" for a variety of reasons and occasions. Using the latest technologies available, our surveillance team thoroughly sweeps the venue(s) to "sniff out" electronic surveillance devices.


Many law enforcement agencies (LEA) have existing Secondary Employment programs where off-duty officers can provide services such as event security and executive protection. Many more want these programs, but the administration, coordination, and communication involved can be a burden. We will work within the framework of your program - or create a new one - and assume program management, insurance liability, and new opportunity developments. The result is a revenue-generating program with more assignments, less paperwork, and increased income opportunities for your law enforcement officers.

International travel is crucial - whether it's for expanding growth markets or meeting with stakeholders. Many executives find themselves visiting unstable regions, putting themselves, and their organization in danger.

Luckily, we know how to prepare for travel. Our global intelligence team gathers information on local protests, civil unrest, terrorist activity, weather conditions and recent crime rates. We then aggregate this data to lay the groundwork that will anticipate and mitigate risk, wherever you travel.

We also offer executive protection. Our protection teams are hyperaware, armed with advanced intel and masters at anticipating all possible scenarios. You can rest assured that our travel plans will maximize your safety.


Clients all over the world rely on our asset protection services, whether for pre-planned events or unanticipated catastrophe. We've helped organizations protect their assets during labor strikes, plant closings & downsizings, Black Friday shopping events, terrorist attacks and natural disasters.
