    I just got the call,I am now a site supervisor for one of my companies major contracts. I interviewed for the job on Monday and got the call today. Wow,and what a change it will be,5 minutes from home, fifty cent increase in pay,no uniform(casual dress),not to mention the 300 dollars a month I will save from driving 90 miles a day. So any of you management types or supervisors want to give me some advice I will welcome it 100%. This is going to be way differant for me, I will be dealing with corporate types daily,as well as company employees and I will oversee 14 S/O's and they are all normal everyday folks, not the drug dealers,hookers and scum that I am so used to dealing with. So any advice is good. Thanks in advance..

    TC are you still with Wackenhut? If so I recommend the leadership series course from WTI, which will be a requirement anyways. Learn as much as you can from your officers and I'm sure you'll do a great job! Congrats and good luck!

      Congradulations. Welcome to Management

      I learned one thing in the management course I took while in Police Technology. "Praise publicly, criticise privately."
      I enforce rules and regulations, not laws.
      Security Officers. The 1st First Responders.

        Yes I am still with Wackenhut, and I do need to get into the leadership courses that they offer.

          I could not agree more. The ability to do this is one of the best a supervisor can have. You'd be surprised at how hard it can be. While you may think that calmly correcting an officer on post is not criticising, that officer may take it as such and get upset over it.

            Not only the leadership course but talk to your Manager, Physical Security (or ops manager whatever they're calling themselves today) and ask for a list of the correspondence courses. There is a group of them that your branch office can download and email to you. They are generally short course with a quiz or test after them. They range all through out the security field from bike patrol to communications. I offered these to my officers a couple times a month, it gave them something constructive to do and was a morale builder. The first one I would suggest to you (after the leadership course) is Accident Prevention, Investigation and ergonomics. (LP32) I think it is. Excelent course especially for a new supervisor with so many officers.

            Again good luck (and don't forget to get your P reports in on time!)

              When I was a supervisor for Wackenhut I learned one thing real quicklike... If you want to make any type of change, make sure they (TWC Corp. Office) know. I did a couple minor things such as let a couple employees switch schedules, etc... Something that was so small that I did not feel the Corp. Office needed to be involved, I got my ass chewed a little more than I think I should have. ( I am not an ass-chewer, my philosophy is if it comes to a point I have to chew someones ass, I have failed).

I stand as an ordinary citizen. I have no right to; detain, interrogate or otherwise interfere with your personal property-... basically all that means is I'm a cop."-Officer Ernie

                Yeah the thing with that is, you need to make sure that a person was not hired for a specific shift, a lot of times your office doesn't pass that onto you.

                  Tough bunch of S/O's you worked with, best of luck with the new position. The fact your open to advice and know you have a lot to learn means you'll probably do a great job.

                    I certainly hope he was actually referring to his "clientelle" more so than his S/Os.

                        Best of luck at Wackenhut, I hear they're a tough company to work for, personnel-wise.

                          I have been with Wackenhut now for 3 years on and off. I just moved into a supervisor(manager) position.
