International Security Expert Joins Protection From Abuse
Raffaele M. Di Giorgio Joins PROTECTION FROM ABUSE as Program Manager
PHILADELPHIA – Sept. 14, 2016 — PROTECTION FROM ABUSE Security Services announced today that international security expert Raffaele M. Di Giorgio is joining the charity as Program Manager. Mr. Di Giorgio is a former law enforcement officer, with more than 25 years of military, emergency response, and medical experience. Mr. Di Giorgio has provided training and consulting throughout the world including presidential Protective Service Details in Mexico, Australian Embassy (Baghdad), Iraqi National Police (INP) emergency response unit (ERU) members/medics, South Africa Military, Afghanistan National Police, Jordan Special Protection Group (SPG) units and Pakistan Police units.
“The organizational culture here is one of continuous improvement, and the addition of Raffaele to our team will strengthen our collective efforts toward the improvement of our programs and services,” said Steven Dana, Chief Executive Officer. “Delivering security related victim assistance in the domestic violence landscape is a unique challenge, and I think this team is positioned to make substantive and innovative contributions that will address victim safety in a meaningful way.”
Mr. Di Giorgio holds a Department of Defense Security Clearance, and is a multi-disciplined instructor and public speaker on such disciplines as Protective Intelligence, Intelligence Operations, Tactical Medicine, High Value Target (HVT) Protection, Dignitary Protection, Emergency Response Planning, Responding to Mass Casualty Events, Emergency Medical Operations, Crisis Response Planning, and Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP).
“It is an honor and privilege to be invited to work on such a worthwhile cause. As someone who has witnessed the terrible ills of domestic violence both domestically and abroad, I am grateful for this opportunity to serve such an under-protected community, yet I find it disheartening that our services are even necessary for this day and time,” said Mr. Di Giorgio. “But thanks to PROTECTION FROM ABUSE and its leadership and vision, together we can make a difference in the lives of those who do not have the resources to protect themselves.”
