Q?

Why should I use Brokk Protection?

A.

Our network is not just limited to Philippines. We are the official local representative of International Security Agency, which has offices in US, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
Our protection agents are in addition, to being locally licensed, also trained by the globally recognized ISA Academy®, who provides training to government protective units worldwide. Each protection agent are required to to meet the operational standards of US and Europe before being deployed with Brokk Protection.

Q?

How are your Agents trained?

A.

All our agents have to meet the PNP's requirements to attend a locally accredited Protection Agent training, sanctioned by PNP, SOSIA and TESDA. Upon completion of this basic training, we handpick suitable candidates to attend the world renowned ISA Academy's BTP course. Those who successfully complete and graduates from ISA Academy will have a chance to join Brokk Protection as Protective Agents.

To give you a formal quote, you would have to start by filling out the "Service Request Form" and submit it, giving us any relevant information that you think may help our team to assess and respond to your request as accurately as possible.

Q?

Do you use external agents and third parties?

A.

Sometimes we do use external staff on remote locations where we do not have enough local personnel, or sometimes officers from PNP or NBI as additional resources when needed. However, the officer in charge will always be from Brokk Protection.

Q?

Why is a security agency offering “bodyguards” much cheaper than you?

A.

If a security agency is offering "Bodyguards" it is a criminal offence, punishable by law! A Protective Agent (Bodyguard) can only be legally deployed through PNP or a duly licensed Detective/Protective Agency! A security agency cannot legally provide protective duties in the Philippines, it is against the law and as such a criminal offence!
Deploying staff licensed as "Security Guard", claiming they are "Bodyguards" without proper training and licensing, is not only a criminal offence and fraudulent, but placing you at risk as well.
It would be equally irresponsible by a hospital to provide a nurse to conduct advanced surgery instead of a properly trained and qualified doctor.
If you have been a victim of this "scam", please report the incident to PNP Civil Security Group (SAGSD) immediately at +63 2-722-2939!

Q?

Why can’t i just employ a bodyguard myself instead of going through an agency?

A.

A Protective Agent (Bodyguard) can only be legally deployed through PNP or a duly licensed Detective/Protective Agency!
Even if the Protective Agent is duly licensed, he/she cannot be legally deployed if becoming an employee of someone who does not posses a License to Operate.

Q?

How can I know if a Protective Agent is qualified or not?

A.

It is very simple! Request the person to show you their SOSIA issued license/ID card! The protective agent will have the words "PROTECTION AGENT" on his/her SOSIA ID card. However, if the SOSIA license has the word "SECURITY" instead, the person is a security guard and is not qualified or licensed to provide protective services!

Q?

Why the name “Brokk”?

A.

In Norse mythology Brokk (also known as Brokkr) was a hard working blacksmith. Loki (son of Odin and brother of Thor) bet Brokk and his brother that they could not make gifts for the Gods as wonderful as those that they already had made previously.
Brokk accepted the bet and set out with his brother to make Thor's hammer. Brokk crafted Thors hammer despite Loki trying to sabotage his work due to their bet. Brokk prevailed and finally presented the finished hammer to Thor. Brokk completed his tasks despite the harassment and sabotage attempts of Loki, due to his hard work, commitment and loyalty to the cause, just like the corporate spirit of Brokk Protection embodies dedication and loyalty to the task.
