THE BRONX - In an unassuming business front sits Archangel Global Security, a big name in the private security business.

The company was started by Bronx resident Arnaldo Salinas, who was a founding member of The Guardian Angels. Now he runs a firm employing 300 people around the world from Manhattan to South Africa and everywhere in between.

Salinas says that he's protected big-name celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres, Donald Trump and 50 Cent. He says Dora the Explorer is the hardest to protect because instead of worrying about malicious people, they are protecting her from kids.
