Tripwire Consulting is led by Rick Seger, a retired Senior Special Agent in the United States Secret Service. He also served as an infantry officer in the United States Marine Corps and as a Special Agent in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. Subsequent to his retirement in 2012, he was an Operational Adviser with the U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group and a Team Leader in the U.S. Army Security Assistance and Training Management Organization in Beirut, Lebanon. He has extensive case agent experience in terrorism, protective intelligence, violent crime, and contraband manufacturing and trafficking investigations, which included service on drug, financial crimes, and terrorism task forces in the Washington/Baltimore area and in Iraq. In the area of special operations consulting, he also advised U.S. combat units in the application of law enforcement methods to counter-insurgency operations in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere. In addition to his investigative experience, Seger was a member of the Presidential Protective Division, served on numerous advance teams and details for foreign Heads of State and other U.S. protectees, and was a member of the Secret Service Counter Assault Team (CAT), and the ATF Special Response Team (SRT). He held leadership positions on both tactical teams and instructed at the ATF SRT and Secret Service CAT Schools. He was the Program Manager for the CAT Training Section and was a field firearms instructor in the Baltimore Field Offices of the ATF and Secret Service. Seger received two major awards in his career; one from the military for his performance on the Iraqi Threat Finance Cell in Iraq, and another by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Baltimore for preserving the existence of a large company through his efforts as a co-case agent in an embezzling and money laundering investigation.
