Executive Protection is a suite of security and protection measures taken to ensure the safety of executives, VIP’s, dignitaries, celebrities, athletes, and other high-profile individuals.

When an employee makes a threat, the first step is threat assessment.   Risk analysis includes a background check, surveillance, and a review of their personnel file and all lawfully available public record information.   If a legitimate potential threat exists, we next assess the existing security level of the executive under our protection.   This includes a site survey of their existing security system, identifying security vulnerabilities, and increasing security if deemed necessary.

Often, this can come down to client preference, but there are legitimate needs for both, depending on the context of the assignment. 

For example, in cases where a high-ranking executive has been threatened by a disgruntled employee, there is a legitimate need for around-the-clock protection.  But the appearance of uniformed, armed professionals may frighten neighbors and cause undue alarm.  In cases such as this, plainclothes is a great option – the Executive Protection team still provides the same level of protection, but their softened appearance better fits the venue.   Civilian clothing can also be used to mask the presence of Executive Protection in a large, crowded venue for and a lower profile.    

Alternatively, there are cases where you may want to send a message that Executive Protection is present.  Armed and uniformed Executive Protection agents certainly send that message.   This is often true for hostile terminations and threats of workplace violence.  For the safety of all employees, management may utilize uniformed Executive Protection.

Security guards are a valuable layer of security, but Executive Protection is for when you need peace of mind.  When there is a high threat potential, or athletes/celebrities/VIPs will be in a large open venue, use trained professionals.   Since true Executive Protection includes previous experience with protecting high-value targets, we select seasoned active and former law enforcement for our Executive Protection team. 

Armed / Unarmed Protection

Our elite team of Executive Protection agents is available 7 days a week.   Composed of highly trained and decorated veterans, we know how to serve and provide protection.   We have been doing it our whole lives. 

The needs of our clients are paramount, and in response we utilize men, women, and professionals from undercover and gang detail backgrounds.  We can blend in or stand out.

Many Executive Protection providers use unarmed civilians who are unqualified to offer true Executive Protection.  The owners of Nolan Enterprises serviced as members of law enforcement and the military.  Service is in their blood.  Facing real life-or-death situations has given us a unique vantage point.  When lives are on the line, who better to trust than those that have already given their lives to service?   Nolan Enterprises proudly uses active and former law enforcement and service members exclusively for its Executive Protection team.   Our clients receive the benefit of trained law enforcement professionals.

Armed protection is used to carry out high-risk assignments and protect high-profile individuals.   For low-risk assignments, unarmed Executive Protection agents can be used.  Even unarmed, our Executive Protection Professionals are formidable.

Under California law, carrying a concealed weapon requires special licensure, a CCW (Carry a Concealed Weapon) license.  In Los Angeles County, to obtain a CCW, you must complete a training course, undergo psychological testing, register the exact make, model, caliber, and serial number of the weapons you plan on carrying, show cause, meet the minimum requirements, and be of good moral character.  In many instances, because Peace Officers are already experienced at carrying and exercising good judgment, they make ideal Executive Protection agents.

Hostile Termination

In situations where an employee needs to separate from the company, but may be potentially or openly hostile towards management or co-workers, minimize the potential for workplace violence by using our Executive Protection team to facilitate a smooth exit.  

If you need immediate protection, or are planning a termination, we can perform a threat assessment and determine if Executive Protection, surveillance, or a combination is justified.   Most often, Executive Protection will be present during the termination, oversee the employee’s exit, and then ensure they do not return.  It is common for employers to maintain an Executive Protection presence for a period after a hostile termination.   

The goal is to prevent workplace violence or an active shooter incident.   Violence does not “just happen.”  It represents the culmination of anger, rage, previous conflicts, and is usually triggered by a situation where the employee only has “one way out” – violence.

To learn more about how Nolan Enterprises can assist with a hostile termination, contact us.

A hostile termination is the process of separating the company from an employee who may be disgruntled or not wish to separate from the company.  Hostile terminations are pleasant, but the sooner it is handled, the sooner it is done.  Often Executive Protection agents are used to facilitate hostile terminations.   The goal is to remove the immediate threat of the hostile employee and protect management and co-workers against retaliation.  After a hostile termination, a period of monitoring is often the best course of action to ensure the terminated employee does not attempt retribution. 

  • Do a background check to look for indicators of past violence and any open arrests.  
  • Let them go early in the morning, and pay them for the full day.  Terminating them at the end of the day may anger them, as you kept the news until the last possible moment. 
  • Have all necessary separation paperwork ready. 
  • Make sure you are not alone.  If you choose to use Executive Protection have them inside the room.  At a minimum, have a witness with you.  A member of Human Resources is usually a good choice. 
  • Make it brief.  Do not allow debate or argument.   Deliver the information in a confident and final manner. 
  • Bite your tongue.  If they take the low road or make offensive statements, do not take the bait.  Often a prepared statement is the best choice.  

Many factors must be considered.  Does the employee have a history of making similar statements?  Has the employee ever been arrested or convicted of a violent crime?  Does the co-worker that was threatened feel unsafe? As an employer, you are responsible for maintaining a safe work environment at all times.   Depending on the answers to these questions, the employee may only need a written warning or suspension.   If the threat was credible, it often wise to consult with your attorney and find the best way to separate the employee who made the threat from your organization.

Plainclothes or Uniformed Protection

Nolan Enterprises offers private personal security services in uniform, or in plainclothes.  Plainclothes just means “street clothes” – or whatever would fit the venue.  For public events, plainclothes may mean jeans and a t-shirt, or for formal events, plainclothes may mean wearing a tuxedo or formal gown.   The goal of plainclothes is to blend in and create a low profile.   

The presence of uniformed, armed professionals may frighten guests and ruin the vibe.   Plainclothes Executive Protection means the same level of protection, just more blended with your guests. 

Alternatively, there are cases where you may want to send a message that Executive Protection is present.  A uniform certainly sends that message.  For the safety of all guests, management may utilize uniformed Executive Protection as a deterrent.

Contact us to receive a quote for a site survey (based on the square footage of your facilities).

A site survey is the act of a trained professional taking a physical walkthrough and applying specialized tools and equipment to calculate the required lighting, access control, and security measures, as well as review the existing lighting, access control, and security measures.

  • Churches & Places of Worship
  • Corporate Parks
  • Event parking/temporary site
  • Malls
  • Parking lots
  • Private residences & estates

In many cases, inadequate lighting, low or absent physical patrol, and a lack of deterrents such as CCTV systems will create “the perfect opportunity” for thieves to break into vehicles.  A site survey can identify areas of vulnerability and assist clients in making the necessary upgrades to maintain a safe and comfortable environment for your guests. 

Threat Assessment

A threat assessment assists in defining existing threats and assessing new security procedures and upgrades.  Your customers, employee, and guests rely on Stakeholders to monitor and provide necessary security.  

This includes policies, procedures, physical security, camera systems, and training.   When combined with protective services from our EP team, your organization can develop contingencies and protocols that will deter and prevent violence.

Nolan Enterprises is proud to serve the following industries and organizations:

Churches and Places of Worship

Food Service

Workplace Violence

Workplace violence includes threats and actions against members of management or company employees, usually by a former or current employee of the company.   It is rare for an active shooter to target a workplace that has no personal connection to the shooter. 

Active shooter incidents are the most known form of workplace violence.  Nolan Enterprises provides security consulting to help our clients detect and prevent violence in the workplace.  When an aggrieved employee threatens co-workers or management with violence, our clients can count on us to respond.  

It starts with Threat Assessment.  We are uniquely suited to advise clients on risk, threats, domestic terrorism, active shooter events in occur in the workplace and the appropriate response.   Identify vulnerabilities before they are exploited.
