The reference book of choice for the Close Protection Operative, 18 Oct 2013
This book is heavy and heavy for a reason. It's packed full of the MOST in depth analysis of the world of Close Protection as it is today. This is the reason it's read by police, military, civilian and government protection units and their operators all over the world. This is huge in every sense of the word. Richard details everything in a comprehensive but easily understandable way which immediately kicks the though processes into gear, making for really enjoyable and interesting reading. A lot of thought has also gone into the pictorial content making that superb balance so it's again easy to take the information on board.
A closer observation of the protection equation does what it says on the cover without a doubt and then some. It goes beyond your SIA Close Protection course and draws you into the 'real world' demonstrating the key skills needed to be an effective professional Close Protection Operative by utilising first-hand experience of the British Army's Royal Military Police Close Protection Unit and knowledge of the UK Police's National Close Protection course..
Richard Aitch's world renowned work puts the SIA syllabus to shame. If your serious about Close Protection, whether an inexperienced or experienced operative, I implore you to get this book and I can guarantee, which is quite worrying when you think about it, that you WILL find information, life saving information, that you will wonder, 'Why didn't the SIA course mention this. This is important!' I could say a lot more but people, well respected people in their fields, have already said it and given it the stars it deserves... Shame, Amazon don't offer more stars...
THIS IS A MUST HAVE. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
