International Foundation for Protection Officers

The International Foundation for Protection Officers (IFPO) is dedicated to providing meaningful, cost effective education for all levels of security personnel.  Educational institutions as well as individuals have found the IFPO Programs to be a valuable professional development tool.

 We believe that education is an essential part of professional development for those charged with protecting others:  The Foundation serves individuals, security service firms, and organizations that have their own security staff. Career orientated officers as well as individuals benefit from the recognition and professional standing that the Foundation certification conveys.
