Personnel Protection: Kidnapping Issues and Policies is a video presentation. Length: 9 minutes.
In Personnel Protection: Kidnapping Issues and Policies, presenters Jerome Miller and Radford Jones discuss the issue of kidnapping as it relates to an executive security program. It covers the risks for kidnapping of the executive or executive’s family members, along with strategies for creating a sound corporate kidnapping policy.
