Ep. #061 - Countering Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-UAS) with Special Agent Robert Waltman

In this episode of Standing Post, we're joined by Special Agent Robert Waltman, who discusses one of our lesser known programs: Counter-Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-UAS). This initiative focuses on countering the emerging threat that drones, with their small size and high speed, pose to our protectees. As an expert in the technology--Waltman started using drones when they were known as multi-rotors and required pilots to build them from parts off the shelf--he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience about this issue, and tells us a little about his non-traditional path to becoming a Secret Service Special Agent. If you have an interest in drone technology in an exciting and challenging environment, consider a career in the Secret Service. We’re expanding our Counter-Unmanned Aircraft Systems program to include special agents, officers and technical professionals that are familiar with drones and want to have an impact in the world.

As a child, Uniformed Division Officer Leth Oun experienced some of the worst atrocities known to man: he grew up in Cambodia in the 1970s under the Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot’s reign of terror.

February 2023 Update

Update for February 2023 I apologize to everyone expecting a new episode of Standing Post this month. We had an opportunity to build a dedicated studio for podcasting and other video projects and it took up quite a bit of our time. However, now that it is built and we have a new home, I think we will be able to expand our ability to tell stories in both audio and video formats. This is an exciting new chapter for Standing Post and I look forward to sharing more stories in new formats with you. Special thanks to Uniformed Division Public Information Office Paul Mayhair who did the brunt of creating this new space, transforming it from a storage area to a soundproof room with modern sound dampening tiles and green screen capabilities. Paul, I promise, I'll get to that cable management soon. Also, I need to think the Communication and Media Relations leadership for letting us take over that space and trusting us to build something useable.

Ep. #048 - The History of Secret Service Firearms with Armorer Bill O' Rourke

Episode #048 - Please welcome USSS Armorer Bill O’ Rourke to the show. O’ Rourke has been with the Secret Service for more than 30 years as an armorer at the James J. Rowley Training Center (RTC). During his tenure, he’s seen extensive changes to the organization, including the transformation of RTC from a one-building structure to a multi-acre complex responsible for most Secret Service training. O’ Rourke has also been a part of several firearms changes in the organization – and he and his four-person team have personally every service weapon in use today.

 Our conversation with O’ Rourke is a great look into a little known area of the Secret Service: weaponry. He talks about the transition from revolvers to automatic weapons, the changes in calibers and even how ammunition is tested. There’s a lot of science in ensuring that every weapon in the agency fires accurately every time.

 Hosted and Edited by: Abel Trevino, Associate Producer and assistant editor: Starr Vazquez
