Personal protection in the entertainment industry is an area that has traditionally been a patchwork of under qualified and generally misplaced individuals. One only need pay attention to the media to find the often disastrous results of this approach. The 5280 Group understands the sensitive relationship and inherent responsibility that comes with performing this function for your artist. We believe our philosophy of Professional, Experienced, and Discreet addresses many of the limitations of today’s choices. As with all of our staff, 5280 Personal Protection individuals are recruited for specific traits we feel are important to their responsibilities. While there will always be situations where physical presence is an asset, there are more incidences where a keen mind and appropriate training are most important. Decisions that have long ranging effects are often made with little time and it is the experience of 5280 staff that protects your artist in these situations. It is imperative that you have someone that can perform under pressure. 5280 has proven time and time again we can meet the challenge. Our staff’s commitment to being effective, but at the same time as unobtrusive as possible, is unparalleled in today’s industry. We have one of the most rigorous selection processes for our Artist Protection positions and only a small percentage of applicants go on to become part of the Entertainment Division. The 5280 Group has the staff to meet your artist’s needs and preferences. A 5280 Project Manager will work with you directly to identify the type and style of individual that best fits your needs. Our staff is as diverse and individual as the entertainment business itself.
In the most effective configuration, your security program would utilize both 5280 Venue Specialist(s) and 5280 Artist Protection professionals. This unit approach combines the resources of both departments and creates a seamless and effective plan. All members of the team have similar philosophies and use their unique strengths to compliment one another. For smaller organizations that still require the highest level of service, the 5280 Group can provide an individual that is able to manage both aspects of your program at once and still deliver unparalleled protection.
