Close Protection Industry Shop Talk: Chuck and Chris and Current Events
This week we discuss a myriad of topics as the world spins up and everyone is slowly getting back to whatever post COVID looks like. We discuss being physically, and tactically prepared, prepping equipment and being functionally capable, planning and reviewing the threatscape. With threats everywhere from increased violence to the infrastructure being overwhelmed by the environment the latter part of 2021 is going to be busy. We want to be as ready as possible.
