Our Company

Established in 2004, APG provide professional Close Protection, Security & Investigation services and accredited training courses with offices in Manchester, London & Birmingham and our operatives based nationwide, operating both nationally and internationally.

All our operatives & management staff are licensed by the Security Industry Authority (SIA) in-line with current licensing criteria.

Our history

APG was formed in 2004. Our aim from the offset was to improve standards by example and as such we went back to basics; training. After spending many months developing effective, up to date courses teaching precisely what operatives need to know and further relevant information and techniques, whilst maintaining that course graduates should be able to hit the ground running, feeling confident in their ability.
Once we had established the courses, feedback from students and their new employers confirmed we had reached our first goal and from this our reputation for excellence was born. Our next step was to concentrate on providing the highest quality service; focusing on quality, not profit.

We remain highly vocal in promoting good practise and highlighting malpractise, which continues to plague the industry. Security isn't rocket science, yet so many companies get it wrong- setting up a company is easy, successfully running a professional, competitive and profitable company is a very different matter.

Non-disclosure policy

At APG we firmly believe in non-disclosure. Time and time again we see security firms plastering their Client's details all over their promotional material which makes for great advertising but totally contradicts their role, leaving them open to infiltration and exploitation.

With APG you can be sure your safety, security and privacy remains just that.
