About Us

Security Company in Paris, France

Westminster Security has extensive experience and a proven team of multilingual French bodyguards. Westminster Security provides personal protection to clients throughout France, including Reims, Paris, Lyon, Cannes, Saint Tropez and Monaco.

Our clients extend from London-based business executives to celebrities travelling for work or leisure. Also, there is an increasing demand for our services from overseas holidaymakers. Tourists are concerned about the ongoing terror threat and attacks. Both residents and travellers find themselves seeking a more robust personal security solution.

As a company, our established presence in Paris is crucial as a basis for our European operations. It allows us to serve our existing clients better and to build on our exclusive client-base. Our teams are already in-situ, ready to react and assist with all our client’s security concerns.

Make Sure your French Security Team is Legal

The law heavily regulates the French security industry. CNAPS (Conseil National des Activités Privées de Sécurité) is the French equivalent of the UK SIA model. Companies need authorisation from the Ministry of Interior and must use trained and licenced personnel. 

Of course, there are always charlatans out there. Some companies operate under the radar and with little respect for the rules and law. Many UK-based companies are claiming to entitlement under SIA 3-month rule. You should note that this is not a proper licence or authority. Also, this agreement is likely to be revoked after Brexit. Companies who use this loophole are likely to be operating illegally in a few months (if they aren’t breaking the law already).

Unlike many of our competitors, Westminster Security bodyguard services have been thorough. We have undergone rigorous localised scrutiny. We have earned proper authorisation and licensing which allows us to operate legally under French government guidance. We are the only London-based security company to hold CNAPS Authorisation for the ‘Protection physique des personnes’ (physical protection of people) in France.
