|Mandatory Gun Testing
As part of our Department of Public Safety licensing, the Board
requires each guard to be trained in "security" related handgun
and Shotgun strategic shooting by advanced Security schools.
The State's PSB board requires all bodyguard applicants to be up
to date on all handgun proficiency tests and passing scores. Our
agents carry their State handgun credentials while on assignment.
Strength and Conditioning
Sure, we carry a weapon. But Reynolds Protection is actually
more adamant about their employees sharpening their hand to
hand skills and conditioning their bodies. Physical altercations
are far more likely to occur than gunfire, therefore our physical
skills should be exercised more. This is especially true in
assignments that involve Crowds, Parties and Alcohol.

Classroom Training & PSB Security Exam
The biggest mis-conception of bodyguards and executive protection
officers is that we rely on our Knuckles and our Guns. That couldn't be

those skills - then we probably did a poor job planning for the
The classroom is where officers learn the dynamics of protection. In the
classroom, you'll learn how to spot a threat before it happens, you'll learn
how to dissect a room for the best exits, you'll learn escape routes,
evasive driving, body language warning signs - - in fact, in the classroom
you'll even learn techniques on how to smooth talk your way out of a

Who are we?
We are a Security & Personal Protection
agency based in Dallas, Texas. Most
people use the phrase 'Bodyguards' -
Those more familiar with the industry say
'Executive Protection'. All of our licensing,
schooling and training is given and
governed by the Department of Public
Safety's Private Security Bureau. Given
the serious nature of our business, the
PSB and DPS closely monitor our
employees, training and business
The bodyguards and EP Agents at Reynolds Protection are licensed and approved
Level 4 Personal Protection Officers by the DPS & PSB. They have all had excellent
training, testing and passing scores by advanced Security schools and given their
DPS Level 4 credentials. More about our training further down this page.
Most people think we only hire retired Cops or ex-Military at our agency. Which is
understandable; they do make great Bodyguards. But over the years we have also
found great talent in other fields too. For example, at our organization you will find
those same Officers with the backgrounds in Military and Law Enforcement; but
also you will find Gaming Officers, Investigators, Corrections Officers, Firefighters
and EMTs. We have found that with the right training, having diverse backgrounds
creates the ultimate Security team.
