Annotation: THIS FILM, DESIGNED TO TRAIN SECURITY PERSONNEL, PROVIDES INSTRUCTION ON THE BASIC TEAM MOVEMENT TECHNIQUES USED IN PROTECTING AN INDIVIDUAL IN PUBLIC, BOTH ON FOOT AND IN A VEHICLE.

THE DIAMOND, WEDGE, AND CAVE-IN PROTECTIVE TEAM FORMATIONS ARE DEMONSTRATED, SHOWING DEFENSES AGAINST VARIOUS TYPES OF ATTACK. WHEN TRAVELING IN A MOTORCADE, THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF EACH SECURITY OFFICER AND THE 'FOLLOW-CAR' ARE DESCRIBED. THIS FILM IS INTENDED FOR USE BY EXECUTIVES OR PUBLIC OFFICIALS THEMSELVES, AND MEMBERS OF THE SECURITY TEAMS ASSIGNED TO PROTECT THEM. IT DEMONSTRATES THE NECESSITY OF COOPERATION BETWEEN THE SECURITY TEAM AND THE OFFICIAL. (BAC)
