A Guide to Executive Protection
Perpetuity Press, ISBN 1899287 59 0 80 pages
Those in private industry tasked with management and fiscal responsibility for protective services frequently come from the financial, human resources, or legal divisions of a corporation, rather than the security side, and may have relatively little understanding of executive protection. Based on five years of research by a well-respected professional, this 80 page book gives a good breakdown of the tasks needed, and can be used as the basis for structuring a department.
The book is organized around the acronym PROTECT: Plans, Response, Organization, Technical, Emergency, Communications, Threat Assessment. It shows, with flow charts and descriptions, backed by more detailed appendices containing items that might be included in various plans.
This is a good reference for someone wishing to put together a protective services department and needing to know what the people they hire should be doing. It is also a good resource for the working professional, against which existing structure can be checked to make sure that Nicholson hasn’t thought of something you have forgotten.
