Lessons Learned from a Lifetime in Protection | Dale June

Becoming an educator is often the dream of many EP colleagues no matter where they might be in their careers. We all have something that we could share with the world, and we want to give back to the community, but what sort of skills are involved? What sort of experience translates well into being an educator? 

This week we welcome Dale L. June onto the podcast. Dale is a former military law enforcement and member of the United States Secret Service, where he served under four U.S. Presidents. He has a Master’s degree in criminal justice and currently teaches at the college and university levels. He has also written over 15 books, including the just-released new revised, 4th edition to ‘Introduction to Executive Protection.’ 

Tune in to find out a few of the nuggets of wisdom Dale shares including:

  • How to be more original in your thinking.
  • How to overcome your demons and past mistakes.
  • How to make a successful transition after a long career in the security industry.
  • How to stop having regrets or fearing what’s around the corner.
  • Plus we unveil a little known fact about Dale’s early career which may just be a Circuit Podcast exclusive!


As Dale aptly puts it: 

“I believe that the greatest tool…or the greatest weapon, however you want to use it is the brain. So why not use it and why not use all of your tools of thinking?” 

Hear all this and more as Dale talks about the latest release of his new book, ‘Introduction to Executive Protection’ with new, content and contributions from our very own Elijah Shaw.
