At Protective Group, we aim to provide people with the confidence to live without fear. Everyone deserves the right to move through life without the worry of having someone physically or emotionally harming them or their loved ones. Unfortunately though, this isn’t the case. The reality is that many individuals and organisations are targeted, threatened and harmed by others on a regular basis.
We’re here to do everything we can to limit this harm and abuse, and to provide effective, reliable safety and security solutions to anyone that needs it, anywhere in Australia.
Through our three core streams – Protective Services, Tek Safe and International Student Care – we’re putting the power back in victims’ and organisations’ hands. By assessing any security-related situation, be it on or offline, we’re able to implement highly specialised techniques to overcome the risk posed, and then work with victims and organisations to develop and carry out individualised safety plans and strategies.
While we may never be able to eradicate safety and security threats from society altogether, we can at least provide confidence and peace of mind to those who need it most.
As service delivery partner to The Salvation Army Australia since 2016, Protective Group provides assessment and security interventions for hundreds of women and their children experiencing family and domestic violence abuse every year, enabling them to remain living safely in their homes.
By working closely with students placed under our care, we’re able to provide a safe and secure environment to study and socialise in Australia. We even offer a dedicated phone line service and will physically attend to students in need, anytime of the day or night.
Across universities, schools and colleges, we assist educational institutions in identifying and overcoming any security risks. This can include training staff on how to respond to an active armed offender, and providing crisis management as the link between a student’s family and school during times of crisis.
When people need help, the first place they often turn is to a charity or non-government organisation. We work closely with these types of organisations to assess and minimise risks for their clients, and provide a safer home or workplace.
Many DV services call on our expertise to help improve victim survivor security. Often this involves a combination of services including risk, safety and lethality assessments, increased home security, implementation of personal safety planning and the provision of our Tek Safe Personal Duress Alarm.
On both a state and federal level, and for departments covering child protection, police and social security amongst others, we provide assistance via a range of our specialised services. This can include surveillance and investigative work, security and vulnerability assessments and working one-on-one with victims to ensure their security.
Companies large and small across various industries can also be the targets of malicious activities. In these cases, we often assist with investigations, security and vulnerability assessment and planning, security services including Close Personal Protection, and IT and cyber security services through technology surveillance sweeps.
Even the most vulnerable and destitute members of our society can be the target of harm and abuse. To help keep homeless people and those sleeping rough safe while living on the street or in temporary accommodation, we work closely with charities and NGOs.
Due to lone and shift workers’ often isolated working conditions or unusual working hours, they can be targeted by opportunistic perpetrators. To help overcome this and assist workplaces with their legislative obligations, we’re able to provide security services as well as our Tek Safe Personal Duress Alarm to ensure peace of mind that workers are protected with the push of a button.
I’m going outside, shopping and all sorts of places that I wouldn’t do without feeling so safe.
ISC was referred to me after hours and to my surprise Mark answered his cell. After introducing myself and the reason for my call he attended our office early the next morning. Marks representation to the authorities on our behalf averted a serious issue which we now manage as a part of our Company Policy. An issue which was extremely confronting to me was dealt with a calm that was extremely reassuring. When it comes to the safety of my staff and students we will always turn to Mark & ISC.
Mr. Tully has provided services of the highest standard. Mr. Tully’s level of professionalism is outstanding, and he has been unfailingly responsive in addressing student welfare issues. In several occasions over the six year period Mr. Tully has worked with this organization, his exceptional investigation skills have been critical in ensuring international students’ welfare under often difficult circumstances. I heartily commend Mark Tully and International Student Care to any organization providing education or welfare support services to international students.
The Safer in the Home program has assisted seven of my clients and their families to feel safer in their homes so that they can move forward with their lives in a positive way... I fully endorse the program which provides a thorough safety assessment of the home environment conducted by qualified and skilled assessors before upgrades are carried out. The program model has proven to be a valued resource in minimising the impact of domestic and family violence for the clients I assist in our community.
I cannot speak highly enough of the two representatives from the Safer in the Home program, very supportive, even after case was closed they still send me messages to check my safety.
The activation of the Tek Safe Wearable Duress Alarm resulted in the apprehension of the offender and played a significant role in preventing serious injury or death.
Having the security system has changed our lives dramatically, not only do we feel safe, we no longer have to peek out windows to see if we are being watched or stalked, and are able to record and playback any previous movement. The installation crew were exceptional, ensuring every angle of the property were covered that the system was easy to use and navigate, and that recorded info could be downloaded easily and efficiently if needed as proof. The install was very tidy and clean with no damage or mess to my property. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!
We strongly support the Safer in the Home program and believe it is a valuable service which greatly contributes to the ongoing safety of individuals who have experienced domestic and family violence... The feedback received from individuals who have been referred to the program is overwhelmingly positive.
International Student Care’s Mark Tully has provided services to our clients over many years and has done so with the utmost professionalism, reliability and genuine care. Mark is trusted and ethical and is always focused on going above and beyond to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients.
I was blown away by the amazing support I received from the Safer in the Home program. I feel safe staying in my home with my children now that the locks have been changed and broken window has been replaced.

We look forward to continuing to work with you and your team , and increasing access to safety for our women and children. Thank you specially to Safer in the Home for allowing us to utilise this valuable program, it really is making a difference in our community.
Just wanted to say thank you for the help and support you and your company have done for me and my family, since you have been out to my place to help with advice on security and getting security cameras installed we are already feeling much safer, the cameras have helped with my anxiety knowing it's recording 24 hrs a day, I feel I can finally sleep at night and not look out the window constantly worried for our safety.
