Bodyguard Gear, Workwear and Law Enforcement Gear

You will find that most bodyguards have their own custom bodyguard gear kit, whether they’re working abroad or at home on operations and contracts you’ll generally find they have the best bodyguard gear. You might find that some bodyguards like buying more bodyguard gear than they actually need, however, it’s more showing off than anything.

Personal protection and bodyguarding can take many forms, which means that you’ll need many different pieces of bodyguard gear. You might be driving a car one day, working on the door the next or working in a different country armed protecting diplomats.

Female Bodyguard

female bodyguardBeing a Female Bodyguard is becoming a lucrative business, more now than ever. With the need for a female bodyguard for some of the biggest names in the world becoming more and more, it’s no wonder that we’re seeing more women taking to the job.

And rightly so, there’s nothing stopping women joining the circuit as a personal protection officer or bodyguard. After all, they will often come from the same backgrounds as most of the male and celebrity bodyguards in the industry.

And when some clients don’t want the overt approach, they’re likely to look for a female bodyguard to join or lead their security detail.

A Foreign Female Bodyguard

In China, it is becoming common for rich businessmen to have a female bodyguard on their detail. They go through just as much training as their male counterpart so why not?

In China, many female bodyguards go via the Tianjiao International Security Academy in Beijing. The founder of the academy said she spotted an opening in the industry and joined the booming market.

They’re multi-talented, not just as a security operative but also they’re trained in wine-tasting or personal assistance. This means they can communicate with their bosses on multiple levels and aren’t solely stuck in the security role.

More so, China has a booming economy meaning more and more business residents are becoming millionaires and billionaires. A lot of these business people are women and they prefer to have a female security team.

Before Colonel Gaddafi’s fall he used to be flanked by anywhere up to 40 female bodyguards. They were known as the Revolutionary Nuns, not much else is known about them but many stories say whilst they were part of his security team they weren’t treated correctly.

Female Bodyguard at Home

It wasn’t too long ago that Emma Probert, a close protection officer was in place to protect The Duchess of Cambridge. On top of that Prince William, Nicole Kidman, Katie Price and Justin Bieber have all had a female bodyguard in the past.

Needless to say that female officers blend in that much easier than their male bodyguard counterpart.


Celebrity Bodyguard

celebrity bodyguardIf you follow any kind of celebrity, politician or public figure you’ll notice that when they’re out in public they’re usually accompanied by security guards or celebrity bodyguard.

Sometimes there is just one celebrity bodyguard and sometimes there is a team of them.

Why do you need a Celebrity Bodyguard?

There are people in the world who want to hurt public figures, celebrities and politicians through their own or other agenda. Whether that be physically or mentally. For that reason, many public figures require bodyguard services to secure their safety.

Some bodyguards are ex-military or specialised law-enforcement and a casually described as Close Protection Operators or Close Protection Officers. You may well think that celebrity bodyguards are all muscle and no brains, but you’ll be glad to know these professionals are just that. They know their jobs inside out and have your personal protection as their first priority.

Many don’t need weapons unless they’re in a war torn country. They use their professionalism and training to get by and resolve issues and problems before they become one.

Celebrity Bodyguard Salary

In recent years, a bodyguard salary has gone up depending on who the contract is with and where in the world the contract is taking place. According to a recent study, a bodyguard salary could be anywhere between $38,000 and $120,000 with the average being around $65,000 per year.

The more risky the contract, the more the pay goes up. To get higher paid contracts you do have to be a seasoned protection officer who can deliver the safety required by their celebrity employer.

Reputation is everything within the industry and if you’ve done a good job on one contract then you’re either likely to stay employed with that contractor or passed on to another friend of the celebrity through word of mouth. Some but not all successful operators have started their own private security firms.

Famous Celebrity Bodyguards

There are a few well known celebrity bodyguards who have been on the circuit for a while, they’re almost celebrities themselves.

Reshawn Davis – An active serving security officer and even has his own TV show and owns a clothing line.

Mykola Melnychenko – Retired bodyguard of a Ukrainian President. He defected from his role and country after recording the presidents conversation and released them.

Chuck Zito – Currently retired looking after his own companies. Zito worked as a celebrity bodyguard for Lorna Luft who passed him on to many of her friends in Hollywood thus enabling Zito to setup his own company.


Private Detective Licence UK

Private Detectives in the United Kingdom now require a licence under new laws. To rid rogue investigators, the United Kingdom will be introducing restrictions, including criminal record checks, by next year.

Bodyguard Insurance

bodyguard insuranceGetting any kind of insurance when you’re running a business, whether that be a business owner or freelancer is a good thing to do. Especially in the line of work of being a Bodyguard. You will require bodyguard insurance from starting out in your bodyguard training.

Bodyguard Insurance

You will need to purchase business and liability insurance (bodyguard insurance). This is vital for any security bodyguard business. Many states, such as California, will not issue a license without proof of bodyguard insurance.

In California, private patrol operators who employ armed security guards must have a million dollar policy in case of injury or death.

You can get bodyguard insurance from any major insurance broker, the better thing to do is shop around to make sure they cover your specific type of work and what you do.


Roles of Close Protection Unit

A Close Protection Unit is tasked with protecting VIPs. In order to become part of this unit, operators who have already spent time as regular Military Police soldiers, must undergo an intensive selection process, before they can become part of the unit.

The Close Protection Unit works and trains from a camp in Hampshire and operates in areas as diverse as Columbia and Algeria, protecting everyone from Diplomats to Afghan Generals. Those would-be bodyguards must show above average intelligence and fitness as well as grit and determination before they are accepted on to the eight-week course.

The course takes the volunteer RMP soldiers back to basics, teaching them defensive and offensive driving techniques, new weapons systems and shooting methods. All of this is so that they might save the life of ‘the principal,’ as the VIP is referred to, in an ambush situation.

Alongside the lessons, recruits are developed physically. The intensity of the fitness programme does contribute to the failure rate on course. For most of those who fail the course, fitness or injury is the reason.

Another major aspect of the course is the ranges, where the new weapons and drills are practiced. The nature of the job, means that prospective bodyguards need to be well drilled in non standard engagements as well as a variety of new shooting techniques geared towards protection of an unarmed principal both on foot and in vehicles.

Close Protection Unit Course

close protection operative

For those who last the course, there is a two-week exercise, which acts as their final assessment. This test can be anywhere in the UK and sometimes involves guarding actual VIPs, who volunteer their services to enhance the realism. The assets brought to bare on the final phase of training are impressive, with helicopters routinely used to move exercising troops as they would be on the job.

For those who pass this final hurdle, the job awaits, where ‘the principal is the only thing that matters’, as one instructor put it. The newly qualified bodyguards or ‘BGs’, as they are know, could find themselves operating all over the globe, in small teams or on their own. For all those who pass, the job is a calling.


Close Protection Operative

A Close Protection Operative or ‘Officer’ as they are sometimes called ia type of security operative or government agent who protects a person or persons. The person or persons are usually a public, wealthy or politically important figure in society.

Close Protection Operative Job Role

close protection operativeA Close Protection Operative’s job would be to keep their ‘client’ out of danger. The danger could be anything from theft, assault or kidnapping to harassment or threats.

Some of the most important public figures in the world like heads of state, senators, politicians and governors are protected by groups of close protection operators. They could be a private group from a security agency or they could be security forces of the government. To give an example of types of security forces within the government I recommend looking at the United States Secret Service.

Types of Close Protection Operatives Work

Contrary to popular belief, most types of work covered by a CPO isn’t like Kevin Costner in the movie ‘Bodyguard’. Their role entirely depends on their skill set or what they have been employed to do. They could be a part of extra units deployed to deal with IED detection, bug detection, counter sniper operations, pre-search operations or general background checks.

Some operatives train specifically in close quarter protection like those bodyguards in Afghanistan where they are no more than a few feet away from their client at all times and most are so professional in the work which they do that you’d not even notice that they were there.

Other Close Protection Operative Duties


In some cases, CPO’s are expertly trained in evasive driving techniques so that they can execute short-radius turns (J Turns), high speed cornering and anti-surveillance. They may have the role to act as decoys by getting rid of tails on  a lead vehicle.

Weapons and Tactics

Most career close protection operatives are highly skilled in weapons, tactics and a varied amount of weapons systems. Their systems may range from a small hand-held baton to a taser, pistol or full automatic weaponry.

Counter Sniper Weapons and Tactics

The real role of a close protection officer is to stop an attack before it even starts and this means they may have to ‘flush out’ snipers from their sniper holes. They are trained to know where a shot might be taken and use that information to clear potential hotspots and plan routes around them.

Daily Tasks

Daily tasks of a CPO can include the following, planning and assigning responsibilities, searching vehicles, transferring clients to their vehicles, travelling, security cordons when arriving at destinations and returning their client to a safe location.


Cost of Bodyguard

If you’re looking to hire a bodyguard to provide you with protective services, you must know the cost of bodyguard. This ultimately varies depending on which type of protective services that a bodyguard would be providing to you. You may be traveling abroad to a stable foreign country where your protection needed is small or you could be traveling to a war-torn country or country which is rife with terrorism and danger that you need a team of highly training close protection operatives.

Cost of Bodyguard

In this post we’ll look at some costs of bodyguards which you could use for different roles around the world and their average cost in those roles.

Cost of Celebrity Bodyguard

According to a recent study, Britney Spears spends close to $500,000 a year on a bodyguard and other protective measures. Britney isn’t the only one however. The rapper 50Cent spends over $1 million a year on bodyguards and security. According to a seasoned security business owner, 50 Cent’s security expenditure is in the lower range of what high-profile individuals pay for personal protection. The cost of 50Cent’s security per day works out at approximately $2,800 per day and the cost of a modest bodyguard in New York is $75 per hour. What does $2,800 per day get you? It gets you 37 bodyguard hours per day, which can be allocated into one bodyguard for 24 hours plus a second one for 13 hours.

Cost of Event Security

Event security are generally made up of non-security professionals for the most part. They could just be a collection of normal civilians wearing high-visibility jackets or clothing branded with the events logo.

These types of security guards can be used for monitoring the event, screening visitors and patrolling perimeters of the event. They may respond to disturbances such as disputes or violant behaviour. Members of event security have minimal training and only some require a licence to operate as a member of the event security team. The high-end cost of event security averages around $45 per hour.

Cost of Unarmed Driver

Generally known as a chauffer, time-served drivers of celebrities and business professionals can be used on a daily basis. If a client required being driven from location to location around a city, an unarmed driver would be on-call whilst their client is in meetings. These drivers know the city they’re driving in like the back of their hand, they know every side road and location. These drivers or companies can charge up to $90 per hour for this service.

Cost of Armed Driver

Cost of BodyguardThere may be a time where you require something more than a chauffer and this would escalate to an armed driver. If you’re in the United States, New York state law limits guards to carry any weapon more powerful than a 9mm handgun. With this in mind, the handgun of choice is the Glock 9 in New York. This weapon can be tucked neatly into a holster under a suit or jacket.

A bodyguard in New York can ONLY draw a weapon if their life or their clients life is in imminent danger. If the weapon is used when that is not the case it is classed as ‘menacing’ and is strictly prohibited. The cost of an armed driver is approximately $500 per day.

Cost of Unarmed Personal Security

Unarmed personal security are usually made up of former police officers. They could also be ex-FBI (or their equivalent) officers or ex-military. These personal security guards are great at analyzing risks and can plan their clients day around them. They are more of a prevention than cure and the cost of an unarmed personal security officer is approximately $500 per day.

Cost of Armed Personal Security

If you are a high profile client like a well known celebrity, businessman or government official you may require an armed security detail. A detail might consist of one or two security personnel. A scout, to go ahead and scout intended locations and another to personally accompany the client. These armed bodyguards get everything like food, accommodation and travel paid for by their client. The cost of an armed bodyguard is approximately $750 per day rising to $1000 per day if it is an international job.

Cost of Full Time Bodyguard

If you require a 24 hour surveillance roster which is covered by a number of bodyguards. These bodyguards usually live on an in-house residence near to where their clients are. Their main role is is protecting their individuals and their families by securing homes, scouting buildings, sweeping vehicles and screening staff and personnel.

The cost of a full-time bodyguard is approximately $1000 – $1500 per day.

Cost of Top Level Bodyguards

Top Level bodyguards are ones reserved for the likes of the biggest names in the world in politics, entertainment and business. They’re the elite of security usually being ex-Secret Service operators. They put themselves through intense training courses. Tending to come in teams of 10 or more and costing $1000 – $1500 per hour.

Close Protection Operators

Usually supplied by a security contractor, like the old “Blackwater” company. Close Protection Ops are generally ex-Special Forces operators who have left military life but have all the skills to protect their clients when in war-town countries. The cost of a close protection operator is approximately $1200 per day.
