Dayton, OH – On the heels of the Men’s Basketball trip to the nation’s capitol in early December, the Pride received a guest speaker on January 11th from the U.S. Secret Service as part of the Player Enhancement Program (PEP).
Agent Todd Bagby of the U.S. Secret Service spent time after practice talking with members of the Men’s Basketball program. Agent Bagby, Resident Agent in Charge for the Dayton Office, gave a quick overview of the Secret Service that included employment opportunities and educational requirements. Following the 15 minute intro into the agency, Agent Bagby fielded questions from the players and handed out several brochures about the Secret Service.
The concept of having someone in to speak with the team originated from the teams trip to Washington in December. Throughout the entire visit to the Nations Capitol, the Pride had positive encounters with the members of the Secret Service and Capitol Police. This sparked some interest and a lot of unanswered questions. Thus the call went out to the Dayton office with the invitation to spend some time speaking to our Student/Athletes.
The United States Secret Service is a federal law enforcement agency with headquarters in Washington, D.C., and more than 150 offices throughout the United States and abroad. The Secret Service was established in 1865, solely to suppress the counterfeiting of U.S. currency. Today, the agency is mandated by Congress to carry out dual missions: protection of national and visiting foreign leaders, and criminal investigations.
