By |2019-01-25T06:18:30-07:00March 31st, 2016|

Prior to 911(September 11 attacks), we would not have paid attention to a suitcase left unattended at the entrance or inside an airport terminal. Today that suitcase should be an immediate safety concern to everyone at that airport. It takes only a moment to dial 911 and report the presence of an unattended suitcase. True, the suitcase could have been accidentally left behind or perhaps it could be a bomb waiting to be detonated. Each and every one of us must try to remember to be hyper-aware and diligent of any unusual observation or occurrence. Our minds as unfortunate as [...]

By |2019-01-25T06:18:31-07:00October 29th, 2015|

By Robert Johnson, Staff Writer for the Wall Street Journal You don't have to be rock singer Marilyn Manson  or an executive traveling to Russia to hire a bodyguard these days. The clientele of bodyguards is expanding quickly, in this era of affluence, to non-celebrities and to workers far down the pecking order from top executives. For the heavily fragmented industry of mostly small companies that provide bodyguards, or "personal protection agents," as they prefer to be called today, business is booming.
