What is Executive Protection versus a Body Guard?

Executive protection (EP) or personal protection is conducted by experienced, trained, and licensed personal protection officers (PPOs), not to be confused with the antiquated term of the 1990s - "bodyguard." The differences between the typical "bodyguard" service and a professional EP or PPO service is staggering and is briefly summarized in that PPOs are required to have a higher level of proficiency in a variety of skillsets and personal traits including training, aptitude, maturity, and professionalism. The PPO will be trained, licensed, and insured for all security operations.

Who Needs Executive Protection or Personal Protection in Houston, Texas?

Executive Protection (EP) services are for clients who require mobile, personal security for themselves, their families, or their business. Usually, the client has a specific security concern in mind such as a personal threat or a general security concern such as an upcoming public event.

What Does Executive Protection or Personal Protection in Houston, Texas Cost?


Executive protection plans vary in scope, size, and length so we will need to make some general assumptions in order to provide example costs. However, risk drives everything in security. As the Client, it is incredibly important to be upfront, honest, and as detailed as possible to the security company regarding risk and your security concerns.

"Risk drives everything in security." - 1st Veterans Security LLC

Prior to an EP contract being issued and signed, a competent security company will work up a basic risk profile on the Client. The reasons for this background is to understand if the Client will be effectively protected using a basic two-person PPO team or if the risk profile dictates a High-Risk security element comprised of former special operations veterans, a tactical medic, an advanced team, a quick reaction force, and more. If your security company does not ask for a basic background on the Client or investigates risk profile, do NOT use them for personal protection.



Below is an example client workup for an EP contract.


Example Client 1:

  • Client Name: John Doe

  • Profession: Author

  • Background: John is a mid-level author who is participating in a book signing at a public event this Saturday. He does not have a specific threat, but a general security concern with the public venue. John understands that there is a personal liability to doing his own security, a general threat when a large crowd gathers for an event, and most of all does not want to appear distracted from his fans when signing books because he is also trying to stay alert to his surroundings. John decides he needs executive protection or personal protection for the event.

  • Course of Action: John called 1st Veterans Security LLC to address his security concerns. After a brief phone call with a friendly 1st Veterans Security LLC personal protection officer, a risk profile was generated and an EP plan designed for the book signing event. John qualifies for a low-risk, small business discount and his EP plan can be managed by two PPOs (e.g. PPO#1-Driver ; PPO#2-PSD). John is briefed on the EP plan and agrees to the EP contract.

  • Price: The contract is planned for 13 hours at $150/hour. This package included two PPOs for the Client. (e.g. PPO#1-Driver & PPO#2-PSD). Total price for contract is $1,950.00. *Contracts can vary in rate based on a number of factors including Client risk profile, duration, and location.
