Protective Service Operations

Although similar in nature and principle, Protective Services and Executive Protection do have some significant differences in application.

With today's increased vulnerability to crime, the demand for professional protective service operators is increasing. Requests for law enforcement and security agencies to provide protective services are on the rise.

Especially tailored for law enforcement and security professionals, RPCGI provides Protective Service Operations training from basic through advanced and into specialized areas such as estate and maritime protection as well as administration of these operations.

Our graduates include members of full time and ad-hoc details for civilian and military law enforcement agencies as well as specialized private security groups. We are proud to include officers and troopers assigned to details for mayors, county executives, and governors.

With 2010 being an election year, agencies must be prepared for the added responsibility associated with campaign visits. Make sure your personnel are trained to handle this unusual side of police work.

If your agency would be interested in hosting a class or holding an exclusive class for your agency, contact us for the details. Special scheduling and pricing are available.
