The Myths of Bodyguard Work

Bodyguard Careers recently did a great article entitled The Myths of Celebrity Protection , which shows that along with what the reality often is:

You may be expected to protect property, which can mean looking after your client’s purchases from a high-end department store while they continue to shop.

Your protection may extend to the client’s children, which means you may have a child making demands on you, which you are required to meet. This protection may also extend to looking after the family’s dog…and picking up after it!”
