NATO’s Close Protection Unit is made up of highly skilled and highly trained individuals.

A team leader, kept anonymous for security purposes, speaks about the role of close protection agents; how they’re trained; what kinds of personality traits are required to do the job; and the need to encourage more women to apply for the job.

Includes footage of simulated close-quarters firefights and protection procedures.
