Bodyguards are hired by people who are in danger of being harmed or killed. Bodyguards either work for a private company or they work for the government. Usually, bodyguards protect someone’s life. Some bodyguards also protect a person’s property such as jewelry and money. For example, the US Secret Service is one of the government agencies that hire bodyguards and agents to protect the president and other important people. Bodyguards are employed to protect celebrities, politicians, and other high-profile people. They typically work in shifts and are constantly on the lookout for threats. They wear a uniform that includes a bulletproof vest, sunglasses to blend in with the crowd, and sometimes even a wig. Sometimes they might be asked to wear more elaborate costumes like wearing animal heads or disguising themselves as regular people.
