    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?

    Thanks.

    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!
