WHEN ALEX Rodriguez comes to a minor league stadium, he gets star treatment - right down to his security detail. The Yankees third baseman is rehabbing with the Trenton Thunder, which is in the midst of a three-game Double A series against the Fightin Phils this week in Reading. On Monday, A-Rod belted a two-run homer to lead the Thunder to a 6-5 victory. Last night, he went 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly as the Thunder fell, 6-3. On both nights, part of Rodriguez's five-person security team was former WWE wrestler Gene Snitsky.

When he was in his 20s and teaching high school history at Bishop Kenrick in Norristown, Joseph Clancy decided to put on a suit, make his way into the city, and head to the Secret Service field office at Sixth and Arch Streets. Clancy, a Havertown kid, had wanted to be in the Secret Service since John F. Kennedy was killed, which he figured he could tell someone at the office. Even if there wasn't a job opening, Clancy - an Archbishop Carroll and Villanova graduate - thought maybe he could persuade someone to let him join.

HARRISBURG - Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane is recuperating from a mild concussion after an early-morning car accident last week, her office said Friday. The accident occurred in a Scranton suburb while Kane was being driven by her security detail to "morning appointments," said spokeswoman Renee Martin. "She's on the mend," Martin said. Martin said the agent who was driving dropped his iPad on the floor of Kane's state-issued Chevrolet Tahoe, reached down to grab it, and accidentally hit a parked car on a residential street in Dunmore.

An off-duty police officer armed with his service revolver barricaded himself inside a city building in Germantown for several hours last night before the head of Mayor Goode's security detail persuaded him to leave, police said. The officer, William Jones, a 14-year veteran assigned to the department's minority recruitment unit, was apparently intoxicated and had his gun out during the incident, police sources said. A janitor who was upstairs with the officer for more than an hour was allowed to leave the building at Germantown Avenue and Haines Street about 7 p.m. Stakeout officers were called to the building, which is next door to the 14th District headquarters and is used by the recruitment unit.

More than a year after he left office, former Mayor W. Wilson Goode last week lost the security detail of police officers who protected and ferried him in a city car equipped with a cellular telephone. The withdrawal of the detail Saturday ended almost a decade of protection for Goode, whose security over the years sparked complaints about cost, size and the use of police officers for personal errand-running. "It was the police commissioner's prerogative that it was time to end the security," said the Philadelphia police spokeswoman, Sgt. Theresa Young.

About 70 Philadelphia police personnel are spending the week in Charlotte helping to keep the peace at the Democratic National Convention - and giving a small boost to Philadelphia's budget situation, as the Democratic Party is paying their salaries and expenses. The Philadelphia police contingent includes about 50 rank-and-file officers, 15 motorcycling members of the Highway Patrol, a captain, two lieutenants, and a handful of sergeants, according to Lt. Raymond Evers, a spokesman for the department.

Less than three weeks out from the Democratic National Convention, officials announced road closures, security perimeters and again addressed plans for dealing with protests. The security plan, confined mostly to South Philadelphia near the Wells Fargo Center, is more limited than the much larger papal visit's security footprint in the fall. Unlike the papal visit, all major highways in Philadelphia, including I-95, will remain open to passenger vehicles throughout the convention.

THE MULTITIERED granite steps from the concourse of the Municipal Services Building provide more than just an egress from SEPTA's underground rail line to the Center City streets above. The steps, or rather the cavernous space beneath them, offer refuge from the rain for Philadelphia's homeless. "This is the only dry place we can go in Center City," George Creamer said yesterday after yet another soaker left puddles near his cardboard sleeping mat. "Trust me, I'd rather sleep out underneath the stars, but on nights like tonight, when it's going to rain, there is going to be 20 people down here.

Pope Francis, on his first papal trip abroad, frazzled his security detail in Rio de Janeiro by pushing his open-air Popemobile so deep into the frenzy of adoring fans - some of whom were able to touch him - that the vehicle was stopped dead, completely surrounded by the swarm. Francis later apologized to Vatican and Brazilian security but when asked whether he worried for his safety, shook his head and smiled: "I'm not aware of being afraid. " When the most popular pope in recent history - who has a tendency to stray from security protocol - comes to Philadelphia for a two-day visit in September, the city will be on its highest alert.

AS A PENNSYLVANIA state trooper, James Gillison probably had more than his share of drama. Some of the assignments he took on included the usual highway patrol, chasing down speeders, but also included working undercover, in hostage negotiation and as a member of the Special Emergency Response Team that was dispatched where violence raged or lives were in danger. He was at Camp Hill State Prison in May 1989, helping to regain control of the prison from inmates in a bloody, two-day riot that left 123 people injured.
