About Me

 

My name is Michael Smith. A retired police officer, I have more than 20 years of field experience as an Executive Protection Professional. My years of experience have taken me all around the United States and also overseas, including Brazil, France, and Germany.


I have served as team leader on various occasions and worked for top ranking celebrities and corporate executives. In doing so, I have always fulfilled my primary goal of keeping my employers safe from harm’s way and provided an environment conducive to my employer’s agenda, free from potentially harmful interruptions. My aim is to share the insight I have gained in all my years with the next generation of Protection Specialists and hopefully, make the world a safer place.

 

 

Bodyguard Charge

Bodyguards on an average charge between $20 to $65 per hour. In New York City, the average is $65/hour whereas their counterparts in L.A. charge around $25/hour. If you need a bodyguard who is also a driver, the unarmed ones charge around $300 - $500 a day and the armed ones can cost upwards of $500 per day. If you need your bodyguard to accompany you overseas, expect to dish out around $900 a day along with travel and accommodation expenses. It would be wise to not be stringent with your budget because the lives of you and your family are at stake. My years of experience have taken me all around the United States and also overseas, including Brazil, France, and Germany.
