VIP Security

The security of VVIP personals is important for security agencies due to increasing global terrorism, just like terrorists are developing new techniques to attack any person; our security agencies are also evolving techniques and types of equipment to protect them. Security agencies around the globe use many things for creating a security bubble including Guns, jammers and armoured vehicles. The level of security cover depends on the threat perception. VVIP security is decided by a committee consisting of Intelligence Bureau (IB) officials, the Home Secretary and the Home Minister. Security is provided to VVIPs, VIPs, Politicians, High-profile celebrities and sportspersons by a few agencies, namely the SPG (Special Protection Group), NSG (National Security Guards), and CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force).

Special Protection Group or SPG is the premier organisation for providing security for the Prime Minister. The SPG is a specially trained elite security force with members from paramilitary forces. The government of India is set to increase by an unprecedented 125 per cent the manpower of the Special Security Group (SSG) that provides security cover to highly protected VIPs like Union Ministers, the National Security Advisor (NSA), some Chief Ministers and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief.
