The book, In Guards "WE" Trust!! My professional perspective (Volume I), sheds light on the subject of security in general, but places a spotlight on the "Traditional Private Security Guard." While doing so it was necessary to address an assortment of entities viewed by the public as; enforcers, protectors, observers, and reporters. When it comes to the word "Security"; assumption, clarification, boundaries, limitations, and authority are often questioned. To dispel myths and stigmas about certain images given to the traditional security guard, the writer has infused data related to many other protective entities. Visible emerging trends in security are focused mainly on technology, and devices. These tech gadgets introduced are highly compatible with a youthful mindset, and would show greater value, if "WE" market them towards enhancing human capabilities, i.e. "smart cards -smart guards!" The public's costs in dollars and cents for security service warrants our assurance. Unfortunately, the negative stigma of security being a low paying job reduces public confidence. "Truth-be-known," the greatest cost, is paid for by not having adequate security. There has been public criticism regarding security's non-reaction or non-intervention during certain situations when security persons had been present. The most frequent question asked after an incident is where was security? Following the 911 tragedy, the President of the United States verbalized Private Security Guards as being subpar, "nationally." Did "WE" defend ourselves? This was a significant opportunity for the Private Security Industry to cohesively reach out for help! There have been other significant emotional events in the US such as, natural disasters, incidents at schools, etc. where security presence would have been a useful and relevant resource had "WE" been specifically trained, programmed and utilized accordingly. In this book "WE" pertains to owners, performers, providers, and users of private guard services. Prevention is the main foundation of security service's objective. However, the predators' mindset is circumvention and invasion which requires diverse, as well as specific approaches in providing resilient security functioning. Assurance in meeting these challenges warrant absolute expectations when the cry goes out for, S-E-C-U-R-I-T-Y, and "faith" In Guards "WE" Trust!
