SSNW provides security for former U.S. National Security Advisor

Joe D’Amico and additional personnel from Security Services Northwest, Inc., in Sequim recently provided personal security for Susan Rice, who worked for the Obama Administration as a U.S. National Security Advisor and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.

Confronting and addressing polarization was the central theme of Rice’s public speaking appearance in Seattle on Oct. 14, at a Town Hall Seattle event attended by about 500 people and moderated by The Nature Conservancy CEO Sally Jewell.

Rice is on a tour promoting her book, “Tough Love: My Story of the Things Worth Fighting For.”

D’Amico, who said he politically leans right, has provided personal security for high profile people who lean toward the Democratic Party.

“It’s never about politics, it’s always about safety and following the law,” D’Amico said. “If my biggest critics called up and said they were in trouble and needed security, I’d do it.”
