Former Military and Police security teams

Updated: Nov 3, 2023

Burglars are often opportunistic thieves who prey on High Net Worth homes. They seek out any opening that they can take advantage of, specifically doors and windows that are left open or unlocked or are easy to force. Anything of value that they might spot through a window will only spur them on. But it really doesn’t take much to deter these thieves – just smart thinking.

However sometimes you can be the victim of an organised crime gang such as the one currently targeting the homes of high net worth families and some of our clients in London and the home counties, Surry, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire are just a few of the areas being terrorized by the gang, these gangs are not interested in security systems and use multiple people to conduct a lookout for police, they do not just operate at night and have used multiple ways to access the properties including the use of violence and intimidation.

High profile and high net worth people really need to invest in their personal and residential security before it’s too late.

The UK police do their best to deal with these situations but It’s just not realistic to believe that the police can provide protection for life and property to everybody in the UK at all times.

At VIS Protection we offer proactive security teams that are trained at the highest level of the UK security industry authority (SIA) in Close Protection and Anti surveillance techniques.

The threat is the threat as outlined in the initial assessment, however the effects of that threat can change with the risk and this needs to be continually managed by a trained professional, it is not reasonable to believe that one minimum wage security person sat on your drive could possibly have the ability to deal with all of your security situations.

Our aim is to Detect, Deter, Deny and Defend your property and your family against any opportunist or organised criminals from attempting to rob a person or premises.

Security teams, which offer, "un-invasive," and "layered," protection are especially useful for people who live in more rural areas, out of reach of a rapid police response, they can make your home undesirable to these gangs of criminals and move them to other areas, not only this, but we work with the police in your local area and all of our operatives use the same reporting procedures as the police, making it easier for the police to react to a situation and gain convictions.

What sets VIS Protection apart from your normal security company?

VIS only recruit former Military and Police service operatives, we have received the bronze award from the, Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) for our support of those who serve of have served in the Armed Forces.

It is the experience that these operatives have gained in situations all over the world that allows us to offer the professional and personable service that we are known for.

As a client you will always have access to a director that will oversee each project from start to finish and can change aspects of the contract when and where needed, a personal service which the larger organisations no longer offer.

We do not offer minimum wage security personnel or door supervisors; we only offer the top tier SIA operatives that can actively defend your property and family.

We understand that good security is not cheap however we also offer quick reaction teams that can work in residential areas, this cost can be split amongst a whole neighborhood making it a cost effective way to deter criminals.
