Proven Expertise

Mixed Teams

PVI’s reputation for the quality of its British guards is excellent.  As the needs of our customers have changed, we have adapted by applying the same attention to the detail of training and compliance to superbly qualified guards from other nations.

We do not rely on third parties to vet or train our guards.  Instead, PVI scrutinises all of our guards’ medical and training documentation to ensure they achieve the standards our customers demand.  We also visit them in their country of origin to train and confirm they are capable of giving the right level of service. This is how we maximise the protection of our clients from physical threats and minimise exposure to compliance risk at a price that makes sense.
