Bockispot provides close protection combining insurance cover for key personnel with physical protection.  We provide bespoke insurance cover to protect people and organisations whilst traveling against personal injury, attack and even ransom demands following kidnappings.  This can be combined with physical Close Protection Officers that provide personal protection for the rich and famous as well as executives and workers within all types of industries. 

Bockispot  caters for different requirements such as, Celebrity Protection, Executive Protection and for those operating in hostile environments like, TV & News Crews , Charities and Medical Teams or general commercial activities all protected by insurance and accompanied physically as appropriate.  Frequently the comfort of bespoke protection insurance is sufficient.  However, when personal protection is appropriate we deploy staff of the highest quality, licensed by the Security Industry Authority (SIA) and many personnel have backgrounds from Military or Civilian Police.  We deploy both male and female officers providing all round diversity for the perfect customer experience.

Many companies receive threats that their employees will be kidnapped if a ransom is not paid.  Whilst this is only a threat, if no action is taken this could lead to a real kidnap, leaving the company exposed and terrible consequences for the employee.  It is not just about the insurance cover and the benefits it provides, it is the additional services, ransom monies, medical care, professional negotiator and a team to get people home, not to mention counseling and cost of recuperation time.  What you think is a simple business trip or even a holiday can go horribly wrong.  Companies have a legal duty to protect their employees, meaning if something were to happen they could find themselves in legal difficulties.  Why not protect your business and employees for a nominal premium in comparison?

A full risk assessment together with the relevant due diligence is undertaken at the beginning and throughout our work, to ensure a smooth transition to operational matters.
