TRVST Executive Protection FAQ
Hiring an Executive Protection Agency Questions you should ask yourself:
Now that you have asked yourself the above questions and determined that you should minimize your risks. The next question should be "DO I HAVE TO HIRE A TRAINED EXECUTIVE PROTECTION SPECIALIST"? This answer should be "YES." For the following two reasons:
Some transportation companies and security companies offer protective services, but upon investigation most of their "so called professionals" have no training or experience in handling terrorist threats, defensive driving, or bodyguard/personal/executive protection. Typically they are simply big burly guys with a four (4) hour mandatory state Concealed Weapons Carry license.
Be wary of some companies offering "bodyguard" services. Most states require certain active licensure to operate. The State of Florida offers a web site for you to verify if the licensure on companies and individuals offering security, EP or CP services (licgweb.dos.state.fl.us). Some companies advertising "Bodyguards" are just providing minimally trained security officers and are charging you for a bodyguard.
Providing Executive Protection requires more than just having someone armed or unarmed visible day and night. It requires vigilance for potential problems, training in how to prepare and have contingency plans, up to date knowledge of ongoing conflicts/trouble areas, and connections with the profession for assistance or updates on potential problems.
Executive Protection used to be formerly known as being a “bodyguard”. The term bodyguard is slowly dying off and being replaced by educated, non-confrontational, incident avoidance professionals. The days of having a big “thug type” in a suit and tie and going to a place of ill repute, looking for trouble are almost gone. The industry standard now is termed Executive Protection Professional or Specialist. The EP Specialist is hired to protect, cover, and evacuate his or her client and their families. You cannot accomplish this task if you are confrontational and constantly on the offensive. The task of the properly trained EP Specialist is to stabilize, diffuse and de-escalate confrontations or contentious situations. The EP Specialist is present to be pro-active in regards to incident avoidance. Clients who hire EP Specialists are generally high profile individuals by nature, but want to remain low profile in regards to their personal activities and daily lives.
