Derecho Investigations aka Dignitary Protection & Security Group, LLC formed in 2019 by former U.S. Military and Law Enforcement to meet the growing need for Professional Protective Operations Services Domestically and Abroad.
is a fully accredited training program for law enforcement and private security endorsed by the International Foundation for Protection Officers. This program provides specialized training to students who will conduct or support dignitary/executive protective service operations as a single agent or as part of a larger protective detail for elected officials, political appointees, members of the court, corporate executive-level leaders and private individuals of wealth or other risk factors.
Stressing the basic methodology of “protection in-depth” and covering the latest practices of agencies such as the US Secret Service and the unique methods of the military and corporate executive protection teams, ISA course designers placed a strong emphasis on the threat assessment and mitigation process, the use of technology, resource management and the legal considerations involved with providing close protection services.
Students who attend this seven-day course will be faced with real-world scenarios based on events such as the June 26th, 2018 breach of security of Senator McConnell and Transportation Secretary Chao and the earlier shooting of House GOP Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana.
All students at the completion of this training course will fully understand the basic philosophy, mission, and objectives for a protective service agent and the protective detail.
Graduates will be able to take part in, and complete, the required threat assessment and mission planning process.
Graduates will understand the threats and risks to their Protectee and have demonstrated the proper procedures and skills needed to provide a safe and secure environment around the client in accordance with all applicable federal, state and local laws or regulations.
70+ hours, 30 learning objectives, live scenario-based capstone.
