agree  Fuad Yahya: It comes from the military expression "to detail," which means "to assign to a particular duty." For instance, a JAG assigned as defense counsel in a court martial is called "detailed defense counsel."

Security Detail / Presidential Security Detail


The term, as rendered in "US Government-speak" jargon, refers to a **permament** group of personnel who are selected, assigned, trained and employed as members of a "personal security element" to protect a VIP or a critical facility.

A parallel term also used is personnel security group/team =>

qissm amin shaKHes = قسم أمن شخص

Presidential Security Detail:

qissm al-amin al-ra'issii قسم الامن الرئيسي

Hope this helps, bidhin Allah.
