Talon to Provide Executive Protection for Presidential Candidate Michele Bachmann

COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 1, 2011) - Talon Companies, a professional security and risk management firm based in Costa Mesa, Calif., announced today that it has solidified a contract with Michele Bachmann to serve as lead security firm providing executive protection on the campaign trail. Bachmann, the front-runner Republican candidate of the Tea Party, chose Talon to ensure her protection without disruptions.

Talon specializes in executive/VIP protection with expertise in conducting threat assessments to evaluate vulnerabilities ahead of time. Founder and CEO Ron Williams is a former U. S. Secret Service Agent who served as a senior executive agent to ensure the security of multiple U.S. presidents, vice presidents and foreign dignitaries. As the Lead Advance Agent for all presidential visits to Los Angeles during his Secret Service tenure, Williams has specialized expertise in identifying vulnerabilities to ensure a safe and secure posture in public settings.

"As a former Agent, I recognize it is critical to integrate Secret Service protocols and procedures when protecting a high-profile candidate such as Michele Bachmann," said Williams.

Talon agents are comprised of former Secret Service, FBI and U.S. military, as well as other law enforcement agents with extensive experience and expertise to address potential threats and security issues. In the wake of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords' shooting at a public event, candidates increasingly recognize the value of retaining a highly sophisticated security firm to ensure his or her own safety in a public arena.
