    Secret Service vs Private Detail

    So, if a wealthy presidential candidate like Trump has his own private security detail, how does such a detail work with Trump's Secret Service detail? Wouldn't there be conflicts? Does the USSS tell such candidates to dismiss private detail?

    I read that Ross Perot kept his own security and didn't rely on USSS.

    One or the other seems to make sense, but how would the two contingents work together?

    Hire a retired USSS agent as the detail interface. Protectee has his folks as secondary, USSS maintains primary. A candidate detail is in no way akin to a Presidential detail, so it's not an issue.
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!
