Executive Protection is much different in reality than what you have seen in the media or in the movies. This type of work is an art form that requires specialized training and incredible awareness. This book was written by a professional who has practical knowledge of violent behavior and real-life experience in working, planning and coordinating protection details. Executive Protection: The Essentials, is an affordable alternative to those men and women who have an interest in the Executive Protection profession and are not ready to invest significant money into attending expensive courses that may involve travel. This book provides the basic foundational principles of Executive Protection, solidly grounded in a legal framework; yet, goes well beyond basic techniques to provide a unique learning experience for veteran protection agents as well. The reader is placed in the position of a protection/security administrator for a major event with a VIP and as such, will learn all aspects of the protection function while also having the opportunity to apply these principles in real-life environments.Terry Hipp is a veteran criminal justice system and private security professional who has an extensive working knowledge of violent behavior and real-life participation in planning and coordinating VIP protection details and security for major events. He currently serves as CEO and Sr. Director of Training & Education at Assault Prevention LLC.
