In this episode we first get an after action overview of the security at the New York Marathon from Jerry Heying, President & CEO of the International Protection Group (IPG). A World Level sporting event with 47,000 participants, 12,000 volunteers, and spread over 26 miles of city streets. A massive undertaking by all accounts and with heightened security awareness for this year’s event made it even more unique. Jerry Heying has a long standing involvement with this event and shares his experience with us.
Following that security overview we discuss the coming Executive Protection International Conference known as the EPIC-Lifeforce Conference .
