Hawque Protection Group Keeps You Safe Despite Pandemic Crime Surge

Close protection security firm unveils security solutions for corporate, celebrity and high-net-worth clients

Hawque Protection Group (HPG), a best-in-class security firm headquartered in the upscale Buckhead community of Atlanta, GA founded by security expert Chris Rich and his partner Patrick Kane, is pleased to announce security solutions for prominent families and individuals, corporations and family offices in and around the Atlanta area and across the nation.

HPG’s diverse team possesses high levels of experience in law enforcement, executive protection and elite military unit protection to create a safe and secure environment, with robust yet discreet personal security solutions, support and wisdom.


According to CNN, Sixty-three of the 66 largest police jurisdictions saw increases in at least one category of violent crimes in 2020, which include homicide, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault, according to a report produced by the Major Cities Chiefs Association. Major American cities saw a 33% increase in homicides last year as a pandemic swept across the country, millions of people joined protests against racial injustice and police brutality, and the economy collapsed under the weight of the pandemic — a crime surge that has continued into the first quarter of this year.

With American citizens living under a heightened sense of fear related to the pandemic and the overall current state of the nation, HPG offers major turnkey solutions to meet the challenges that come with protective coverage at home, during travel and at high-profile public appearances.

Sophistication, a concierge approach and a superior staff is what separates HPG from its competitors. The company provides consultation services on security programs and investigates and assess threats unique to a premium clientele. This includes travel logistics and safety, background screening of clients’ prospective employees, and training of clients’ staff.

HPG President and Co-founder Chris Rich states; “HPG was necessary to launch now because there was an immediate need for a new line of defense in a world that is becoming more dangerous daily. Our mission is to make communities, our clients and their assets safe.”

Tailored to suit the specific needs of the client, HPG’s personal security solutions are robust yet discreet, ensuring the safety of the client. HPG’s skilled team fits seamlessly into the client’s lifestyle providing a subtle yet reassuring presence that all is well in the company’s hands.
