to An Introduction to Executive Protection,
it “provides beginners in the occupation of executive protection with the tools they need to know and appreciate the
profession; to enable them to realize what is expected when they are placed in positions of confidence and trust; and to understand
the implications of being responsible for the safety and lives of others. This guide emphasizes the basic elements of executive
protection which are often neglected or overlooked in practical application, even by professional schools of executive protection
instruction which sometimes mistakenly assume all enrollees are practiced journeymen. In addition to practical and technical
considerations of the profession, "executive protection" means working with people on a personal level. The author draws on
his extensive and varied experience in the field to share events that inform and enlighten students of executive protection
and teach them how to best avoid endangering those they protect.”
to the book description of Protection, Security,
and Safeguards: Practical Approaches and Perspectives, “Our need for security has not waned since the dawn of
civilization - it has only increased and become more complicated. Protection, Security, and Safeguards: Practical Approaches
and Perspectives draws on the security prowess of former secret service agents and other notable security professionals as
the authors touch on nearly every facet of the industry. Written to satisfy the practical needs of anyone in the business
of protection, the text covers areas such as personal protection, security in the workplace, residence security, healthcare
security, aviation security, and many more. Special chapters detailing the experiences of an identity theft victim, as well
as a woman who must employ 24-hour security to insure she doesn't harm others, cover security issues from the client's viewpoint.
Other chapters on quick threat assessment and defensive tactics will help agents protect themselves and their clients. Although
other publications discuss and analyze security, none focus on both the professional and personal perspectives of this critical

how to investigate suspects, and how to be an undercover agent. The book quickly became the classic text for a whole generation
of law enforcement personnel, and the name of Carmine Motto, now retired from the secret service, is Motto's agent with the
suggestion that we reprint. I countered that we might consider a completely revised edition if June, on of our authors and
a fine writer, would agree to co-author. Motto and June have enthusiastically agreed to work together to modernize the writing,
replace the photographs, and update the cases. Other revisions are listed below in the key features section.”
