Although it is impossible to account and plan for every potential threat, security breach, or scenario that may occur, it is possible to reduce the chance of malevolence claiming the life of your protectee. In the potentially dangerous but highly rewarding profession of close personal protection, critical thinking and a dispassionate evaluation of actions, situations, and events is often the difference between life and death. Thought-provoking Stimulating the reevaluation of traditional strategies and development of independent, adaptable approaches to the unpredictable threat of attack, Introduction to Executive Protection, Second Edition goes a step beyond the basic foundational concepts of the original. Exploring the psychology, philosophy, and professionalism of the modern close personal protection agent, the author uses the real life experiences of veterans in the field to highlight key considerations that will take security and protection into the future. Informative After defining the parameters and the changing role of the personal protection agent, the author reviews the historical and contextual importance of the need for security. He gives detailed insight into identifying the potentially dangerous subject; securing the protectee's home, office, and vehicle; and recognizing and reacting to an ambush. Specific chapters address new levels of threat including terrorism, kidnapping, and bomb threats. Practical Providing realistic information on medical emergencies both natural and malicious, the book dedicates several chapters to outlining the character and conduct of the professional protection agent. It gives practical, common sense advice on day-to-day protocols and instructs in the necessary interpersonal skills that are crucial to the job. Each chapter concludes with a summary and review questions. The appendices provide an extensive glossary of terms, as well as checklists for effective preparation, self-assessment, and "after action" analysis.

An instructive and entertaining book for those public and private investigators who are potential undercover agents, this book approaches the topic from three angles: how to handle informants, how to investigate suspects, and how to be an undercover agent. Undercover places emphasis on the law enforcement agent but does not overlook the private investigator who may be assigned to work in an undercover role in business or industry. The first edition of this book quickly became the classic text for a whole generation of law enforcement personnel, and the name Carmine Motto, now retired from the secret service, is known throughout the country. Both authors contribute years of personal experience and use actual case anecdotes to focus attention on the triangle of interpersonal relationships among the informant, the suspect and the investigative agent. The motivations of the informant are detailed and analyzed to determine his reasoning and willingness to assist the investigator; the suspect is examined relative to his background, associates and capabilities; and, the investigative agent is instructed in protecting the identities of and handling of informants while gaining the confidence of the suspect. This edition of Undercover modernizes the writing, replaces the photographs, and updates the cases to provide insight into the highly intriguing and fascinating human intelligence and evidence gathering method that has captured the public's attention through movies, television and newspapers.

Filled with stories of courage and inspiration, What They Didn't Teach at the Academy: Topics, Stories, and Reality Beyond the Classroom looks at experiences encountered by public safety and military professionals that were not necessarily encompassed in their training or realistically portrayed in simulations. Topics raised in the stories include: A doctor confronting her own debilitating and potentially fatal disease Cultural awareness and safe travel Suicide among law enforcement officers Departmental harassment of a new police recruit Coping with an addicted spouse Posttraumatic stress disorder Life as a K-9 handler The effect of work obligations on marriage and family Conflicts between moral beliefs and professional principles Debunking myths about Islam The book also examines coping mechanisms for stress and discusses the importance of observation, perception, and communication in facing challenging encounters. Through this collection of vignettes and philosophies, the contributors demonstrate that the lessons of life are not taught in colleges, universities, and academies but through hard experience.
