Toronto, ON

Male, 21

I have worked in Toronto's private security industry for the past three years. From babysitting an outdoor art supplies tent on a chilly night to escorting celebs at the Junos, I have undertaken (just about) every imaginable role in the civilian security business. Currently, I am an event security team supervisor and close protection officer (bodyguard).
I can't guarantee that I know the answer, but I will certainly try my best. Ask away!

Is there actually an expectation that you'd throw yourself in front of a bullet that's meant for someone you're guarding?

Asked by pistol pete almost 5 years ago

Absolutely not. You won't find me abandoning the principal to save my own ass if bullets did start flying, but that stems from a personal sense of duty rather than any contractual obligation. The bright side is that your average celebrity, no matter how famous, is a relatively low risk for assassination. Nightclub doormen and armored car guys are much more likely to be shot at.

Asked by Tyalor almost 5 years ago

"Could you walk me to my car? I've got about 80Gs in my backpack." Out of curiosity, I asked to hold the bag. It was surprisingly light. And there was at least two times that amount already in the trunk. I distinctly remember thinking that people rob banks for far less.

Does anyone ever hire you not because they ACTUALLY fear for their safety but just because they think having a bodyguard is a status symbol?

Asked by sammyslaw almost 5 years ago

 

Do most of your clients want you to be conspicuous so that other people see you're protecting them, or do they want you in plainclothes and innocuous?
