U.S. Secret Service: Hands Ready


As noted in the Obama- and Hillary-Protect series, their Secret Service candidate-protective agents hold their hands at waist height, particularly in crowds, but also when standing guard. Presumably this allows quick action against hands of attackers or to draw weapons. Do other protective and/or law enforcement officers use this hand positioning?

I didn't notice or catch any reference to this earlier.

It is remarkable how it jumps out at you when you're looking for it.
