A fully inclusive bodyguard service includes planning trips through Australia and the routes taken to the destination along with alternate routes to take should the original route be compromised. Bodyguards also perform room searches and check the destination for known security threats prior to the arrival of the principal.
Bodyguards may simply escort the principal for their day to day activities ensuring safety and recognising threats. If the threat to the principle is known extensive research and checks are performed to minimise the risk as much as possible. A temporary role for an event or appearance demands extensive research of possible unknown threats, travel routes and departure and arrival locations. Often The security threat for celebrities and public figures is the general public.
