Hawque Protection Group was launched in 2020 because we understand that protection is a top priority in this day and age due to a decreased police force and a growing criminal population globally.  HPG is not just another security firm but more so a group of security thought leaders with deep corporate, law enforcement, close protection and technology backgrounds.  We are fully equipped to handle any security concern domestically or internationally with our global network of professionals.  We are also the only licensed protection firm that is headquartered in Buckhead Atlanta, the rodeo drive of the South.
