“We live in a world that has walls and those walls need to be guarded by men with guns.”

– A Few Good Men

In an uncertain world, threats to personal safety loom in the lives of prominent individuals.  Corporate and business leaders, public figures and entertainers can find themselves in situations that require close personal protection. The same applies to family members. Providing that protection without impinging overmuch on daily life is our hallmark.

CW Prince & Associates is headquartered on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, close to Washington, Philadelphia and New York. We are within a 200 mile radius of two thirds of the population of the United States. We also have satellite offices in Portugal and Brazil.

CW Prince & Associates consists of male and female protection agents of multicultural backgrounds that are also fluent in many languages. There is an emphasis placed on executive protection driving and emergency medicine. We provide a full spectrum of services, ranging from personal protection to private investigations. In a strategic partnership with East Coast Flight Services, CW Prince can cover the world.


People depend on you. You can depend on CW Prince Associates.
