Bodyguards are highly trained professionals who are entrusted with the personal security of individuals. They often work for celebrities, corporate leaders, political figures, and people who are at a heightened risk of personal attack. 

When you hire bodyguard protection from a specialized agency like AIS, we will arrange for one or more of our bodyguards to accompany you to public events, identify potential dangers, preemptively identify escape routes, and take action to keep you safe.


There are a wide variety of factors in the world today that raise security concerns in the private and business sectors.

High profile business leaders are often vulnerable when visiting the city for important meetings or handling highly sensitive material. Executive protection bodyguards are also useful during hostile termination situations, labor disputes, special events, planned travel, and the transport of valuable assets.

Here are some of the many body guard services that our executive protection specialists can provide.

  • Perform an initial sweep of meeting spaces
  • Drive executives to and from business locations
  • Keep a close watch for potential attackers
  • Provide protection during periods of travel


Another common reason that many people seek a bodyguards service is for personal protection. Bodyguard protection services are particularly useful for people who are in potential danger of personal attacks. Personal protection bodyguards help many different types of people who are being stalked or threatened.

It’s also often very important that personal protection bodyguards be available 24/7, even on weekends, nights, and holidays. We take your security very seriously and can provide multiple bodyguards in rotating shifts to keep you safe at all times.

  • Design safe routes of travel and alternative back-up routes
  • React quickly to emergency situations to protect clients and innocent bystanders
  • Closely monitor children to prevent kidnapping
  • Keep you safe without compromising your privacy
  • Provide flexible styles of protection


It’s no secret that Austin is an up and coming major city, and is packed with celebrities every single day. Actors, musicians, political candidates, and world leaders often require protection that is specialized and discrete. At AIS, we provide VIP security for celebrities who need protection from paparazzi, the media, ex-lovers, obsessed fans, and much more.

These are some of the most common tasks that AIS celebrity bodyguards assist our clients with on a regular basis.

  • Escort celebrities to meetings and dinners
  • Accompany celebrities to music video sets and awards ceremonies
  • Stay with celebrities during shopping excursions and personal visits
  • Identify potential threats in performance spaces
  • Block the paths of aggressive cameramen


The media often portrays images of bodyguards being bulky, intimidating figures; however, different types of bodyguards are best suited to specific clients and situations. For example, bodyguard styles can be vastly different depending on whether you need executive, personal, celebrity, or VIP protection.

These are some of the most important characteristics to look for in a body guard service.
