What is a bodyguard’s Job
A VIP Bodyguard is a type of security guard who specializes in personal protection. Governments often use private or state bodyguards to protect their VIPs, usually high-ranking public officials or officers, wealthy people, and celebrities, from danger. Assault, kidnapping, and assassination are among the most common reasons for people hiring personal protection services.
The team that protects a VIP is often referred to as the VIP’s security detail. Governments aren’t the only ones that hire bodyguards. CEO’s, celebrities, and even the average citizen will hire personal bodyguards depending on the environment they’re in.
Are personal bodyguards the right choice for you?
Hiring skilled bodyguards is a great choice for many occasions.
Many people hire bodyguards for more than just personal protection. Bodyguards are great for events with many people in attendance. A big concern with big, high profile events are snipers (highly trained marksmen that can shoot targets from a far distance). Snipers can be hired by malicious actors and can make a great event turn bad real quick. Hired security details have special training in sniper defense and can save the day. Don’t think of security details as some sort of high profile, attention-getting group of armed men, think of them as an insurance policy. You never know when you will need them, but when you do need them, having a security detail will be the best money you ever spent.
