The paper discusses complex threat considerations that a threat assessment plan may have to address and attempts to show how by identifying each potential threat systematically, the plan can account for all conceivable contingencies. The paper looks at threat assessment planning for controversial high profile public figures, for protectees with ambulatory difficulties as well as for protectees with delicate medical conditions who require perpetual care. The paper also deals with the ethical responsibilities needed by a protective agent.

Controversial Public Figures
Ambulatory Difficulties
Medical Considerations
Ethical Considerations

From the Paper:

"Personal protection encompasses many different considerations and threat assessments that are completely unrelated to the physical condition, personal reputation and character of the protectee, as well as very specific (possibly unique) threats particular to the individual. Idiosyncratic issues may include the physical condition and ambulatory abilities of the protectee, medical conditions, political affiliation, and public reputation. Likewise, personal protection plans may also have to take into account the ability or willingness of protectees to follow directions and cooperate with protection agents."
