The Protector newsletter - July 2015
I’d like to welcome all our readers from the U. S. and overseas to the first edition of The Protector. This is our team’s effort to keep our friends, families and colleagues around the world informed on the happenings within our organization. We have a lot to talk about, from the creation of the KDI Tactical Operations Training Center, to our first university intern program. We’d also like to recognize several of our team members for their recent accomplishments and progress. So we hope you’ll take a moment from your busy day and enjoy a look into a few of our journeys at Team KDI.

Executive Protection is perceived very exciting, not for the faint hearted, full of thrills and all the action one would expect from a Tom Cruise movie, but nothing could be further from the truth, since it is demanded of EPs to be at the job 120% (they’re there before the principal, and leave after he has left), long hours and very little shut-eye, did we mention a very high risk environment? EPs are all that stand between threats and their principal most of the time.
The lack of a standard in the industry has led to a very poor image of EPs, and the proliferation of Mikey Mouse (Rambo) companies that promise to have Super Men at the service of their protected, which turn out to be nothing more than a great show.
Members of the IBSSA Anti-Human Trafficking Project (AHTP), under the direction of Mr. Fernando Figueroa – Bureau Chief in the Dominican Republic, conduct a community outreach program in the village of Batey La Canada, a suburb of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.
