Peace of Mind
Every client requires security to some degree, whether that means one of our chauffeurs taking responsibility for a passengers' luggage at the airport, a senior executive requiring discreet protection during a business trip, or an A-list celebrity who wants the assurance that an experienced bodyguard provides as they walk the red carpet.
ADS provides sensible and realistic specialist security solutions for a wide ranging clientele, within industries as diverse as defence and entertainment. Several of our team are ex-military and civilian police, with backgrounds in personal protection at the highest level. Unlike many other security providers, we don't claim to have operators on the ground in every corner of the world, we stick to what we're very good at-supplying genuinely trained, experienced and licensed close protection staff and security aware chauffeurs in the UK and wherever else our clients might need our services.

Personal protection isn't always about the threat from international terrorism, it's much more likely that clients are being kept safe from common criminality, over-eager fans or the avoidance of simple incidents which might result in acute embarrassment and unwelcome media coverage.
Close protection is far more than just reacting to an incident, it's about taking a preventative approach to security, reducing risk at every opportunity and thinking ahead all of the time.
Music & Entertainment Industry Specialists
The stereotypical huge and intimidating bodyguards you see surrounding many celebrities might indeed act as a good deterrent to over-excited fans but are they really going to be effective if there is a genuine and serious threat far beyond having to deal with a few persistent autograph hunters and pushy members of the paparazzi? Could they produce the necessary risk assessment which is a legal requirement, blend in at a black tie function, communicate comfortably at any level or administer first aid if the person they're protecting suffered illness or injury? Essentially, could they stand up in a court of law after being involved in any kind of incident, prove that they have the necessary training and credentials, fully justify their actions and protect the reputation of the person who employed them?
Over the years Andy Dubberley has worked for some of the biggest names in entertainment which means that ADS understands the industry and the often unique characteristics of those who frequent it. However casual some people in the world of celebrity are towards security, in reality, personal protection is no less important than it would be in any other environment. Unfortunately, fame can often attract an undesirable element along with the adoring fans and protection against persistent stalkers or unstable individuals has to be taken very seriously. We believe that taking a 'nothing's going to happen' attitude to an artists' safety is irresponsible in the world in which we live so we don't operate as a fashion accessory, we are there to provide a proactive but commonsense approach to a person(s) security and well-being, whether it's a young star of television making a personal appearance or a highly regarded veteran of the music industry on a shopping expedition.
