absolute must for any person in the bodyguard or security business.
bodyguard (or close protection officer) is a type of security
guard or government agent who protects a person -- usually
a famous, wealthy, or politically important figure -- from
assault, kidnapping, assassination, stalking, loss of confidential
information, or other threats.
important public figures such as heads of state or governors
are protected by several
bodyguards or by a team of bodyguards from an agency, security
forces, or police forces (e.g., in the US, the United States
Secret Service or the State Department's Diplomatic Security
Service). In countries where the head of state is a military
leader or dictator, the leader's bodyguards may also be part
of an elite military unit. Less-important public figures, or
those with lower risk profiles, may be accompanied by a single
bodyguard who doubles as a driver. A number of high-profile
celebrities and CEOs also use bodyguards.
role of bodyguards is often misunderstood by the public, because
the typical layperson's
only exposure to bodyguarding is usually in highly dramatized
action film depictions of the profession. In contrast to the
exciting lifestyle depicted on the film screen, the role of
a real-life bodyguard is much more mundane: it consists mainly
of planning routes, pre-searching rooms and buildings where
client will be visiting, researching the background of people
that will have contact with the client, searching vehicles,
and attentively escorting the client on their day-to-day activities.
