Parking Enforcement


Our staff can patrol your lots as often as you wish and provide you with detailed weekly reports on violators, warnings issued, towing, and any illegal or suspicious activity they see. Most companies won’t commit the resources or fuel to do this, but we do. We are your eyes and ears when you aren’t there.

Towing companies pay their drivers on commission. This often leads to angry residents and customers since often cars are towed that shouldn’t be just so the driver can make a buck.

Our drivers are salaried, so their motivation is to immobilize the right cars and enforce your parking rules, not to tow everything in sight.

Our drivers must pass an extensive background check, drug screening, have a clean driving record and are trained, uniformed professionals. Many towing companies have very minimum hiring requirements at all beyond the ability to drive a a vehicle. Our people are professional in both appearance and attitude and represent your company with pride.

Our fleet of late model vehicles are gasoline, rather than diesel powered. Sure they cost us more to operate, but it allows us to work in your lots at 3 am quietly and unobtrusively and not disturb your tenants or their families. Its little details like this that matter.

Traffic Control

Effective traffic control starts by effectively analyzing the situation and developing a plan that coordinates personnel in key areas where traffic backups are most likely to occur. It is also of vital importance to ensure the safety of drivers and pedestrians while maintaining the flow of traffic in and out of the event.

Our traffic management specialists have extensive professional training and experience. We also provide them with all of the tools and equipment they need to effectively manage traffic as a team, including radios, flashlights, yellow lights, traffic cones, signage, reflective vests, and highly-visible uniforms. Required certification in emergency response, CPR, and evacuation coordination means they can handle any problem effectively.

Parking management falls under the same umbrella as traffic management, as effective communication with drivers ensures that vehicles flow smoothly into and out of parking areas.

Our traffic management specialists are not only trained to manage the ebb and flow of traffic around parking areas, but can handle any equipment necessary to get the job done. We can also supply them with the tools they need to be effective parking managers including radios, uniforms, and call phones.

Executive Protection


Are you a CEO looking for added protection, an employee with domestic issues in your life, do you transport money or sensitive documents, are you an entertainer looking to protect your privacy, or a church leader that sparks controversy? Central Protection’s Personal Protection Officers and Executive Protection program can be the solution to your concerns.

General Duties of a “Personal Protection Officer”

A bodyguard used to conjure an image of a hulking figure that didn’t talk much, but would “crush” any threat that arose. Nowadays, professional bodyguards must be alert, polite, un-assuming, but fully prepared to protect the client in a manner that minimizes risk of liability and injury.

All Central Protection Personal Protection Officers have military or police experience, and are trained in a minimum of 40-plus hours of less-lethal defensive tactics, 40-plus hours of firearms, 32 hours of Executive Protection, first aid and CPR, the National Incident Management System (NIMS), customer service and conflict resolution. Other relevant training includes defensive driving, threat assessment, and public relations. This provides you a competent, certified officer to handle whatever needs may arise.

All of Central Protection’s Personal Protection Officers and Bodyguards are properly licensed, and must qualify and train to Central Protection’s higher standard before working in the field. It’s important to remember that using an untrained or unlicensed bodyguard, makes you liable for their actions. Central Protection’s training follows the models of the IACP (International Association of Chiefs of Police) and ESI (Executive Security International).

Spousal Protection / Escorts

Personal Protection Officers (PPOs) may be just what you need if you are going through an ugly divorce or a domestic situation. If you need to move items out of a residence, travel to and from work safely, go out with friends for dinner, or just go about your daily routine without fear of assault or incident, a PPO may be just what you need.

Celebrities, Politicians, Entertainers

Being a high-profile celebrity or entertainer often brings about over-zealous fans, angry competition, or pushy media members. A PPO trained in customer service and proper verbal de-escalation skills, along with a professional appearance and attitude, can protect your image, while keeping you safe.

Pastoral Bodyguard Service

Many churches and ministries are recognizing the need to have trained personnel to respond to aggressive visitors, protesters, or disgruntled clergy. Some churches and ministries use their own members for their “security team”. Simply having a Concealed Handgun permit and a few hours of training is not a good alternative and may be a violation of state statutes or regulations. Remember that when acting as your security team, the church or individual pastor is liable for all actions, including any potential use of force.

Short-Term Travelling Persons / Valuables (Courier Service)

Transporting money or sensitive documents poses inherent risks, Central Protection Personal Protection Officers can act as “couriers” for you or with you, giving you the confidence that a well-trained professional is by your side or observing at a distance.

Terminations and Executive Protection in the Workplace

Terminations can range from routine to high-risk, sometimes changing rapidly as they occur. Central Protection Personal Protection Officers can provide an obvious or discreet presence in the area and ensure the safety of your management personnel. Central Protection Executive Protection Officers provide the security level needed to ensure your safety, without alerting the public or disrupting your workplace or home life. Central Protection provides “house-sitting” service to executives who want peace of mind when under threat or out of town.

Central Protection Executive Protection Service offers a full-spectrum solution to the personal protection needs of your situation and environment.

We are ready and willing to ensure the overall safety of you, your business, your reputation, and your assets. Contact us today to get started with planning a complete security solution for your business.

A notarial act is any act performed by a notary public that he/she is authorized to do in his/her official capacity. Types of notarial acts include acknowledgments, jurats, copy certifications, witnessing signatures, administering oaths and solemnizing marriages. If you find a notarial act that you need, please contact us using the contact us page.


An acknowledgment is a notarial act whereby a person, at the same time and place, appears before the notary public and presents a document to be acknowledged. If the notary does not know the individual, he/she must present sufficient documentation to the notary confirming his/her identity. Once identify has been established, the individual must indicate to the notary that the signature was voluntary and performed for the purposes indicated by the document. At that time, the notary can acknowledge the document by witnessing and placing a notarial seal or stamp on the document.


An affirmation is legally equivalent to an oath. An individual, at the same place and time, appears before the notary public and makes a vow of truthfulness or fidelity on the pain of pain of penalty for perjury. As with an acknowledgment, if the notary does not know the individual, he must present sufficient documentation to the notary confirming his/her identity. this act is commonly used with affidavits and jurats.

Copy Certification

A copy certification occurs when a notary public is presented with a document and identical copies of the document. Upon inspection, if the notary public determines the copies are in fact duplicates of the original, the notary public can certify that the copies are complete, accurate and identical to the original. However, the State of Florida does not allow for the certifying of documents that are able to be obtained through an governmental agency. These documents include but are not limited to a birth certificate, death certificate, drivers record, etc. Central Protection Services will not certify any document in which we have not duplicated.

Witnessing and Oaths

Notaries can witness or attest to signatures provided that the notary knows the identify of the person signing or the persons who has provided the notary with sufficient identification confirming his/her identity. Additionally notaries can administer oaths, providing the oath is not an other for office or in a military setting. Often these oaths are given to deponents during depositions.

Solemnizing Marriages

In Florida, Maine and South Carolina, notaries can perform marital ceremonies and certify the same. This act only includes the actual act of certifying a marriage. Should the couple wish for assistance in the planning and coordination of their wedding, Central Protection Services also provides this service. We are scalable and can plan a wedding for a budget of any size. Really weddings for between $800 to $80,000. No matter what the budget is, we will assure an event to remember.
