Beyond bodyguards: How EPI put the PRO in protection

Dr. Richard W. Kobetz founded the Executive Protection Institute (EPI) in 1978. He created the world’s renowned Providing Executive Protection Program.

As a Police Commander in Chicago, Dr. Kobetz  worked with the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) to develop training programs on protection. Dr. Kobetz then co-authored “Target Terrorism: Providing Protective Services.”

Based on the book and the broad need for training, Dr. Kobetz created professional protection programs — first for the IACP, and then for the Executive Protection Institute.
