The stereotypical image of a bodyguard, otherwise known as a close protection operative (CPO), is that of heavily set, bodybuilder type man dressed in a suit with sunglasses ready to fight off the paparazzi and crazy fans. This type of character is often portrayed in the media, as well as television and films. Some celebrities may even choose to have some of these individuals with them at award type shows, simply acting as props or fashion accessories. This is because the bodyguard’s presence indicates that celebrity is so important they need shielding or protecting and helps attract more attention or hype, especially when entering an event.
