Although many people assume the protection of foreign dignitaries and officials is carried out entirely by personal staff or governmental agencies, this is very rarely the case. It has become increasingly necessary to rely on outside third party firms to manage the security at events featuring prominent political figures.
Whether the diplomats in question are high-profile, well-known names or relatively unknown, a lot of preparation must go into organizing a cohesive security team. Gone are the days where a few bodyguards could represent adequate foreign dignitary protection, even in closed-door meetings or assemblies.
In the past, a large-scale organization such as the Secret Service or Interpol may have been able to delegate events starring particularly high-risk politicians to local police agencies. However, the climate following the terror attacks of 2011 coupled with increases in technology have lead to such agencies favoring professional private security agencies. This is due to the level of planning, research, and preparation – often a week or more in advance – that must happen when dealing with an ambassador or diplomat from an overseas region.
When setting up an international politician protection team, you must have a group of highly trained personnel who have extensive training, intense focus, and can work the hours required to deal with changing time zones and irregular schedules. This sort of capacity is often lacking from both federal services and municipal outfits.
