The US president and his family enjoy round the clock security. They are protected by the Secret Service, one of the countryâ€™s oldest federal investigative agencies. They are also entitled to a hefty salary. The official chopper and the presidential state car â€˜limousineâ€™ are both considered to be the safest cars in the world.
The official chopper
The US president uses helicopters as a means of travel. These aircraft are operated by the Marine Helicopter Squadron One (HMX-1 â€œNighthawksâ€), and they have carried presidents across the world.
The official presidential chopper is called Marine One and is used whenever the US president needs to make a quick trip in the air. It is usually accompanied by an escort aircraft, but it can sometimes fly alone as well.
A marine-powered helicopter is often the preferred form of transport for the president, because it can be much quicker to reach the airport than a motorcade and they can also get up to speed more quickly in case of an emergency. They are normally equipped with anti-missile systems and hardened hulls.
As a bonus, they can be flown over a large area without having to land, which can be very useful in disaster situations or when the president has to see a lot of ground. They are also very safe, and they can carry a small amount of cargo.
There are two types of helicopters that are regularly flown with the president, a VH-3D Sea King and a VH-60N White Hawk. Both of these helicopters are derived from the United States Navy and Army and are highly specialized for executive travel.
They can be used for search and rescue, drug interdiction, aerial delivery, special operations, as well as transporting government officials. They are able to operate in almost any weather condition and are capable of high altitude flight.
When the president leaves Washington DC he usually takes a helicopter to Andrews Air Force Base where his jet, Air Force One, is waiting for him. He then goes on to Camp David in Western Maryland.
Helicopters are expensive and have their own security issues, but they do provide the president with a way of getting around that is not as dangerous or expensive as a motorcade. They are also very versatile and can be fitted with a variety of equipment.
A fleet of choppers has been spotted buzzing around London this week as President Donald Trump makes his first official visit to Britain. Many people are not sure what to think of these ’tilt-rotor’ helicopters, but it looks like they can be a real nuisance for local residents.
The presidential state car ‘limousine’
If you’ve ever seen the US president traveling, chances are he is in a specially-built vehicle called the state car ‘limousine’. This is no ordinary vehicle that you see everyday on the road â€“ it’s an armoured limousine that is designed for the president and his family to travel in.
The US President is known for being one of the world’s most protected officials, and it’s thanks to this that he can travel to important events and meetings around the globe. Whether it’s inside the White House or flying in Air Force One, the President is always surrounded by guards from the Secret Service and high-ranking police officers.
Whenever a state trip is scheduled, the US President’s chauffeurs drive him to and from his destination in the most secure and safest possible vehicle â€“ this is where the presidential state car ‘limousine’ comes into play. This is a bespoke armoured car which carries the President on every trip away from the White House, foreign and domestic.
This ‘limousine’ has a number of security features and is fitted with an oxygen supply to help keep the president alive during an emergency. It also has a fuel tank that is filled with special foam which prevents it from exploding in the event of a crash. It even has night vision optics, pump-action shotguns and tear gas cannons which can be triggered by the President’s seat.
Its cabin is hermetically sealed and has audio and visual security systems that pick up exterior noise and can be used to communicate with specialized vehicles in the motorcade. It also has a satellite phone that provides the President with direct lines to his Vice President and the Pentagon.
The limo has been updated and modified over the years to ensure that it is fit for the highest of security measures. Its latest iteration, which was used on a recent visit to New York City in September, features a raised roof and a satellite telephone to connect with the rest of the motorcade.
The US president’s security
The US president’s security detail is one of the most important aspects of his role as head of state. It includes a team of more than 5,000 agents and civilian staff, including more than 1,500 uniformed Secret Service officers, who protect the White House, the Eisenhower Executive Office Building (where the vice president and executive staff work), and Blair House, the presidential guest house.
The Secret Service is primarily responsible for the protection of the president and the White House, but it also serves as an intelligence and counterintelligence agency, investigating threats to the country’s highest-ranking officials and foreign heads of state. It investigates thousands of incidents a year of threats to the President and other protected persons, including convicted felons, foreign nationals and members of criminal organizations.
While most Americans know that the Secret Service is tasked with protecting the President and his family, few realize the extent of their duties or how often they need to investigate threats against these individuals. The number of crimes involving the President has increased dramatically in recent years.
During the Obama administration, for example, Secret Service agents were responsible for investigating crimes against the President and his family, including a murder. They also investigated threats to former Presidents, their spouses and children.
Congress had the power to strip Secret Service protections from former presidents and their families if they were convicted of a crime or served time in prison. However, the law was changed during the Obama administration to give former presidents and their spouses lifetime protection.
As the Trump administration enters its final months, it’s unclear what legal troubles could affect his presidential immunity. Experts say that he has the potential to be in federal, state, and local investigations and lawsuits for years.
In the meantime, he may need to rely on his personal staff and friends for support. That’s not a good sign for the president’s ability to protect himself.
The Secret Service, like other national law enforcement agencies, is under increasing scrutiny as a result of its role in the White House attack. Pierson has been criticized for a series of security lapses that included an armed intruder scaling the White House fence and gaining access to the inside of the presidential mansion.
The taxable salary
If youâ€™re considering becoming a Foreign Service Officer (FSO), there are many things to consider, one of them being your salary. After all, youâ€™ll be working hard and you want to be sure that you can support yourself in the long run.
A FSOâ€™s pay is based on a ladder system of grades and steps, where the higher the step number, the better your salary is. So, for example, if you entered the Foreign Service as an FP-4, you would be set at step 14.
As you advance in your career within the Foreign Service, you will be promoted from grade to step. This promotion process depends on the needs of the Department, how well you perform and your potential.
After your first tenure review, which takes about 36 months, you are considered for promotion to the next grade. This is a great way to earn more money as you continue to advance in your career.
During your tenure, you are also entitled to danger pay allowances when youâ€™re stationed in a place where there is a risk that you will be physically harm. These allowances are generally set at 15%, 25% or 35% of your overseas comparable pay and are granted when the U.S. government believes you may be subjected to physical injury or harm due to political upheaval.
In addition to your taxable salary, you are also entitled to an entertainment allowance of $19,000 and a yearly expense allowance of $50,000. Moreover, you are also eligible for a non-taxable travel account and a pension once youâ€™re retired.
There are many tax exemptions for diplomats, consular officers and staff members of American Embassies and Consulates, based on international law and treaties. However, this privilege is based on reciprocity and not all countries give such privileges to United States Embassies and Consulates or their personnel. Hence, you should check your countryâ€™s laws before you file for an IRS tax refund.
