Protective Operations and Executive Protection

This course is taught directly from the perspective that arms-length protection is not necessarily the best protection available. High Profile celebrities often want the sense of a security Shield that a visible protection agent can provide. His or her comfort zone is greater when there is someone capable of warding off unwanted attention.  In corporate environments, the presence of Protectors is usually invisible.  CEO’s often don’t want the intrusion into their personal space, but their Board of Directors mandate protective services. 

The approach taken by our Low Signature Protective Operations is that Zero Presence is often more effective security than Arms-Length. The skills-sets are different and the teaching philosophy focuses on the source of the threat rather than the principal. 

Field drills include practical team manoeuvres and assignments that emphasize the role of Proactive, Predictive, and Behavioral Intelligence as the basis for protecting the Principal. Focused on Low-Profile Clients, this course will prepare students to develop and implement exhaustive protection plans in a Corporate Environment.

The Protective Intelligence Operations portion of the program is a unique teaching platform designed to present the student with an immersive, stress induced, Team Building Mission with different “Plug-Ins” that we introduce to the program in order to give it thematic coherence and a connection to the client. The client might equally be a corporate CEO, family member or celebrity.

The student is given a client itinerary and expected to determine a route destination, reasons for selection, and describe vulnerabilities. The Protective Detail is required to organize client itineraries and carry them out as a team. The teams are assigned to do advances for hotels, restaurants and the airport, produce a plan, give a presentation before ESI instructors, and then carry it out. These assignments are done in large and small protective details, on foot or in mobile convoys in an urban environment.
