EP related reading list
 
I am looking for more knowledge about my field. I recently read "Principle protection; Lessons Learned" by R.E. "Rick" Colliver. I was wondering if anyone on this site could point me towards new books. Especially in the areas of physical security, locks, cameras, security systems, etc.

Try the new Protection of Assets - physical security. Put out by ASIS.

ASIS has a certification program oriented toward your physical security interests. Might want to check out the reading list there.

Is your field EP or the whole security genre? As far as physical security, have a look at these as they cover the basics.

L.J. Fenelly "Effective Physical Security"
http://www.amazon.com/Effective-Physical-Security-Fourth-Edition/dp/0124158927

Fischer, Halibozek and Green "Intro to Security"
http://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Security-Eighth-Edition-Fischer/dp/0750684321

and for your EP fix
Dale June "Intro to Executive Protection"

Thanks guys, I will start looking into to these.

Hostile0311, EP is my current field. I'm new to this line of work and there is a lot to learn.

To add to the posts above:

A very comprehensive book: http://cpbook.co.uk/ The author is G2G in my books (no pun intended)

Not a book, but a blog, well worth a read IMHO ;-)
http://protectioninsights.blogspot.com/

Another blog from a corporate EP leader:

Just 2 Seconds, by Gavin DeBecker and Tom Taylor. Excellent material, reading it for the 2nd time now.

SGTROCK 19 March 2014 02:27

The Gift of Fear by Gavin De Becker and the New Executive Protection Bible by Executive Security International.
Also Social Relationships and Manners but I can not rememeber the author's name at the moment.

gymrat8541 19 March 2014 07:41

Art of Executive Protection by Oatman is a pretty good one as well.

Hoepoe 19 March 2014 07:56

The Close Protection Book by Richard Aitch is a good book.

My EP experience is almost nill. I do however offer DeBecker's book to many female clients as well as the women in my family. I am reading it again for the 3rd time.

He has three books out, all decent, much repetition among the three. I would categorize all as good foundational resources.

Good for EP, but good for the principals too (as well as every adult member of the family ;) )

usmc_3m 25 March 2014 01:14

+1 on Gift of Fear, Just 2 Seconds by DeBecker

Also +1 on the publications by ESI (Exec Protection Bible) and EPI (Providing Exec Protection I & II, and).

If you want to get a solid understanding of what makes stalkers, psychopaths and serial killers tick - I strongly recommend the works of Dr. J Reid Meloy.

Reading List
 
I would add the following books to the list

Left of Bang by Patrick Van Horne and Jason Riley

Crucial Conversations by Patterson, Grenny, McMillan and Switzler

To the OP

there are a lot of flavors in the security service world - some of these reading lists would be great in one situation and worthless as tits on a bull in others.

When I hire protective services types some backgrounds are a deal breaker in one case and the same individuals would be first in line on a different mission.

right now I'm running a full realm 6 element head of state mission. If someone that ran with blackwater or triple c applied they wouldnt get the job because they are essentially a one trick pony.

If on the other hand i was hiring for my patrol and perimeter defence crew (force pro) they would be a good fit.

so the question is what are you wanting to prep for ?

executive pro? diplo pro? force pro? fashion accessory to a star? simple security escorts / bodyman ??

all have their own skillsets ?
