Learn the latest innovative, tested, and proven tactics from instructors actively performing High-Risk Dignitary Protection.

The SGI training staff is comprised of operators from both the military and law enforcement Special Operations Communities.

SGI is a U.S. Department of State Diplomatic Security Service Provider. This course is taught by instructors currently performing on U.S. Department of State protective contracts domestically and abroad.

The SGI High-Risk Dignitary Protection Course in June is being hosted by the City of Mountain View Police Department SWAT Team in Mountain View, California. This is a very ambitious and challenging  4-day (40) hour training program. This course is designed to prepare operators for placement on a dignitary protection detail. Our course focuses on Diplomatic Security and Executive Protection in-country and abroad.

Tactics and techniques taught during this course are combined with realistic training scenarios to test the operator as an individual, a team-member, and as a team-leader of a protective detail. This course was created using the U.S. Department of State Diplomatic Security Services model in conjunction with the vast real-world experiences of our instructors.
