I don't believe most are ether' I agree. It just seems the industry its self however (companies) try to stay in that theme. Florida however seems to pretty much fall along those lines, other states do vary yes.My views, opinions and statements are my own. They are not of my company, affiliates or coworkers.

Just like pilots have to hold an "endorsement" to fly particular types of aircraft, representing that they've been trained IN THAT AIRPLANE and passed check flights, I can envision a situation where security officers would have to hold a training "endorsement" to work in certain very high-risk venues. Such an endorsement would attest that the officer has been trained in the specific vulnerabilities and risks that the venue faces, how to identify those risks, how they should be addressed if and when they arise, and any other special operational procedures and protocols that the venue would require officers to be familiar with. Sending some guy who's been standing around in a grocery store watching fat women stuff turkeys in their crotches over to a power plant or a medical research facility just because someone's out sick just doesn't make any damn sense.

For example, you could require an officer to have a POST certificate, SWAT School, Firefighter II, HAZMAT specialist and RSI qualified paramedic. If however the post orders still say "Strict O&R Only" then what? You will have a bunch of highly trained officers, who aren't allowed to use their training (and who will probably move on seeking greener pastures in about a week)
If you want more training that's fine, but and especially if the officers have to pay out of pocket for it, that increased training needs to come with higher pay, better benefits and more responsiblities
