This week, former Secret Service agent and Chief of Police at Robert Morris University Jeffrey James joins Abby in the classroom to explain the roles and responsibilities of the United States Secret Service. 

Jeffrey reflects on how the Secret Service was originally formed as an agency to combat financial fraud and evolved into the mission of chief protection of the President. Later, Jeffrey walks listeners through the daily task of shielding the President as well as the premium training required of all special agents.
