Close Protection: Luxury & Hostile Environments
The contents of this book are drawn from my experiences in the close protection, security and investigations industry over the last 30 years. What I am providing here is the real-world perspective, not the classroom or perfect world perspective.
I have always questioned what I have been taught, which has got me into plenty of arguments over the years, but without questioning things how they can be improved and refined. I have been very lucky because I have been able to work on many diverse taskings in many diverse palaces and have been able to see what works and what does not. I tell my student’s and people to question everything, especially in today’s world where fake news and social media outlets are all pushing their agendas and selling products. In the real-world, away from the tacticool entertainment world you need what works and what does not as your life and others can depend on it.
Many people’s view of a close protection operative is a big martial arts expert. This stereotype is a widely held misconception. The real close protection professional of bodyguard is someone who identifies and prevents any situations that could be potentially dangerous to them, their loved ones or clients from happening.
