Special Agent Clayton Slay with the U.S. Secret Service spoke about his time with the presidential protection detail and his duties in the Montgomery office to the Prattville Rotary Club recently.
Agent Slay served presidents G.W. Bush and Barak Obama. Typically over 100 personnel travel on each presidential visit covering security and logistics, and he traveled over 280 days a year during the years he served, he said.
Counterfeiting continues to be a problem, ranging from people who simply print images of bills on color laser printers and pass them to store clerks who aren't looking carefully at the bills to organized crime, he said, adding that bills printed using mechanical engraving methods are largely a thing of the past. Agent Slay also talked about identify theft and credit card fraud, both of which are under the jurisdiction of the Secret Service.
