Thinking about becoming a bodyguard? Great choice. There are few other careers that offer the variety, excitement and prestige as Executive Protection. Of course, bodyguards still have bills to pay too, so you probably want to know what kind of money you’ll be pulling down–especially if you’re investing in quality EP training.
The average annual salary for a U.S. bodyguard in 2018 is $70,000.

Your particular salary will ultimately depend on a variety of factors. Let’s take a look at the ones that will have the biggest impact on your paycheck.
