The surprising reason more people want female bodyguards
The chances are that when you picture a bodyguard, you’re imagining a tall, big, broad, burly man with biceps the size of tree-trunks and hands that could crush skulls. But more and more these days, that image is wrong. Increasingly, women are being hired as bodyguards - and average-sized women too. The reason is that huge stereotypical-looking bodyguards - technically called close protection, personal protection or executive protection officers (CPO/PPO/EPO) - actually draw attention to whomever is being protected.
