US Army Military Police School
by the U.S. Army

   The President of the United States is one of the most heavily-guarded persons on the planet. An army of protection professionals are assigned to him, including advance men, site security professionals and personal bodyguards, all backed by emergency response teams and local law enforcement. Yet President Reagan was shot by a wacked-out kid with a revolver.

   This proves that no matter what precautions are taken or how many people are assigned to the task, the safety of any client is not guaranteed. The only thing a professional bodyguard can do is be as prepared as possible.

   Protective Services is not some fictional account of the glamorous life of a bodyguard. This manual was prepared by the U.S. Army Military Police School as part of the training for police escorts. It contains information and techniques used by the Secret Service, State Department and U.S. Marshall Service in the protection of diplomats and other high-ranking officials.

   The information presented here is designed to be used by one-person or small protective teams as well as large-scale, multi-unit efforts. Bodyguarding isn't the easy or glamorous job you see on television. Your life and the life of your client are always on the line. Yet 99 out of 100 times everything goes smoothly. The best you can do is be prepared. One of the best manuals ever written on protective services is available to you.
