protective police detail

Setting is modern day New York City.

My characters have gotten tangled up with a Very Bad Man and thus the police have put them under a 24-hour protective detail. I need a little more information about the police procedure. Would the cops follow my characters around? If a character went to her job, would a cop just linger outside the building?

I've poked around the NYPD website and googled for things like "police procedure" and "protective detail" to no avail, and the mystery writer websites seem to be full of dead links. If anyone could point me to a good site on police procedure or has any ideas about what the procedure might be, I'd appreciate it.
