Over the last decade there has been a global shift towards, not just the employment of specialist security, but the attitude towards it. Once a service employed solely by the rich or famous; specialist security and close protection has now become a necessity of modern business and personal safety.

Dion and his associates provides discreet executive protection, a personal protection service commonly referred to as executive care.
