Driving  In some cases, PPO also drive their VIPs. Normally, it is not sufficient for a VIP to be protected by a single driver-PPO, because this would mean that the bodyguard would have to leave the car unattended when they escort the VIP on foot. If the car is left unattended, this can lead to several risks an explosive device may be attached to the car; an electronic "bug" may be attached to the car, the car may be sabotaged or city parking officials may simply tow away the vehicle. PPO can use the car only on emergencies if the driver is not available.
Weapons and weapon tactics  PPO should have the talent of using Guns in case of emergencies.  In addition to these weapons, a bodyguard may also have more specialist weapons to aid them in maintaining the safety of their principals on emergency basis  Bodyguards that protect high-risk principals may wear body armor vests The bodyguards may also have other ballistic shields, while appearing innocuous, can be used to protect the principal. The principal may also wear body armor in high-risk situations.
Transferring VIPs to vehicle  Once the cars have been inspected and they are deemed to be ready for use, they brought into position near the exit door where the VIP will leave the secure building. At least one driver and PPO stays with the cars while waiting, because the now-searched cars cannot be left unattended. If the convoy is left unattended, an attacker could attach an IED or sabotage one or more of the cars. Then the bodyguard team flanks the VIP as they move from the secure residence to the car.
Travelling  The vehicle then moves out towards the destination. The PPO will have chosen a route or two and in some cases, it may involve three routes that are designated for travel along, which avoids the most dangerous "choke points", such as subways, because these routes have routes to escape fast.
Arrival at destination  When the vehicle arrives at the location, PPO will exit first to confirm that the location is secure and that the staff who were booked to work that day are the ones who are present. If the location is secure, this PPO signal that it is safe to bring in the VIP. The VIP is escorted into the building using a flanking procedure. If the VIP is attending a private meeting inside the building, and the building itself is secure (controlled entrances) the VIP will not need to have a PPO escort in the building. The PPO can then pull back to monitor the principal's safety from a further distance. PPO could monitor entrances and exits and the driver watches the cars.
Return to secure location  After the day's activities, the VIP will be brought back to the secure residence location. Exiting from the vehicle and walking to the door exposes the VIP to risk, so the distance is kept as short as possible to cut down the time it takes to reach the door. Once the VIP is inside, the PPO assigned to the overnight detail will take up their positions or will leave the area and vehicle will then parked in a locked garage (to prevent tampering, sabotage, or IED placement). PPO may spend additional time doing maintenance on the equipment used by himself The PPO will ensure that all equipment is checked and packed away for the next day operation
