It is not an easy task to tell the stories of the policemen hiding behind their sunglasses who are always ready for action with their earphones.These people, with whom I spent every single day of last year, are part of the special team that serves under the Presidential Directorate of Protection. This team, whose members speak little but are always calculating every possibility for any security situation, are in charge of providing security to the top office of the Turkish Republic: the Presidency.Most of the members of this handpicked security team successfully blend into a crowd. Some of the most important features of this team, which somewhat resemble people from an action movie, are their politeness, their thorough knowledge of technology, their intelligent security analyses and their emphasis on continuous training.The security guards, who work as if they are the invisible shadows of the president, exert the utmost effort to allow the president to do his job with ease. Instead of creating tension with their presence, they aim to make things easier for the president. As a result, they make their security plans around the president’s schedule. The team is on duty 24/7 and comprises people who have known each other for a long time. Consequently, although they have their walkie-talkies with them at all times, sometimes only a look is necessary to communicate an idea.
