An A-Z listing of resources for individuals in the protective services. Need to charter a helicopter for your principal? Want to know where to purchase special equipment? Learn about biochemical security? A compendium of odds and ends of interest.
Just as the name suggests, this is a “Bulletin Board” of sorts where jobs are posted. A lot of private investigation work, surveillance, fraud detection. Post your services as a security consultant here to be considered for employment opportunities.
This is a place to promote yourself and your services. A lot of my friends gave me a hard time when I created a profile here (’cause a lot of young people use this site) BUT I have been able to reconnect with so many old colleagues and friends, and have heard from so many people with similar interests that I think it merits a spot in my Top Ten.
“Grown-Up” version of MySpace. Another place for you to post a profile and network with like-minded individuals in this field. Find old friends and make new ones! Good for self-advertising.
My buddy Elijah Shaw’s ongoing blog. Smart guy, with interesting information to impart. Currently working as Usher’s bodyguard. (Sorry, my friend, but I had to rank my website a little higher than yours–hope you understand!)
A website connecting Security personnel with employers. Database of over 20,000 resumes. Definitely a military slant, most individuals have armed services backgrounds.
Yup, we love our own website! Harlan Austin has 20+ years of celebrity and executive protection experience. Job listings, insider tips and on-the-job stories as well as timely articles relating to Executive Protection. Growing database of talent, connecting buyers to security personnel.
Bruce Alexander runs Executive-Protection-News. He is the President of All Source Consulting Group LLC, and instructor to the US Department of State. He really knows his stuff. This is a solid website with good info, I like the site so much that I put it ahead of my own!
Yahoo’s Bodyguard And Executive Protection Forum is a list of professionals who offer bodyguarding and executive protection services. Primary purpose is to share ideas, techniques and resources as well as network with other professionals involved in the industry.
This is the Granddaddy of all Bodyguard sites, with a wealth of information. I personally visit frequently. Top-notch site.
Outstanding list. I have been a big tactical forums fan for a long time, and it has been an incredible resource for the guys out there. Cheers.
