Enhanced Protection Specialist

A Force Multiplier to Any Security Program

MSA Security deploys Enhanced Protection Specialists as a force multiplier for your facility, organization or event. They adapt to ever-changing environments and threats while de-escalating confrontation and maintaining discretion. They understand the importance of confidentiality, integrity and sensitivity, communicating effectively with clients. They maintain a polished demeanor and appearance at all times.

MSA’s experienced team of program managers works closely with each client to understand the requirements and objectives of the security program. We design a customized deployment plan to best address those needs. Enhanced Protection Specialists may be deployed overtly as a visual deterrent, or covertly, blending seamlessly into their environment. They can be armed or unarmed, according to client requests. Enhanced Protection Specialists are frequently deployed with the following responsibilities:

  • Secure and patrol client premises for unauthorized intrusion, fire, theft and other hazards

  • Protect life and property in emergencies and facilitate rescue operations when necessary

  • Liaise between the client, law enforcement and MSA’s Emergency Operations Center to maintain a secure environment

  • Identify and de-escalate verbal conflict and potential or overt acts of violence

  • Respond to medical emergencies as required and as properly trained
