  • stuck in security.

    So its been almost three years since I started working in LP. I have wanted to have a substantial career. But sometimes you just fall into jobs. I don't think that anyone dreamed of being a SO or LP. When I was a kid I wanted to be a Police Officer. My father was falsely accused and served 7 years incarceration.

    Most people I knew fell into the LP job because they had made mistakes in the past or they were not smart enough to be a cop.

    I have made mistakes.
    I have used steroids that I bought in Mexico and sold them here. I even sold some Winstrol to a cop once. I have a hair trigger temper when it comes to certain things like road rage. I have beaten so many people up. I have done other drugs; when I was cycling I smoked weed to help me calm down and took pain pills. I have done lots of coke and meth, but haven't for four years.
    I have been arrested several times. I have been convicted of an aggravated assault with great bodily injury and I served 10 months in county. I got my underage exgirlfriend pregnant (now we have a great son), and I had to marry her so her parents wouldn't press charges. Sometimes I still do a little drugs here and there.

    The most important thing is to beleive in Jesus.

    Why are you in this industry?

      Like u I wanted, and still want to, be a police officer. Like u I have made mistakes. I am in this industry because I want to help people in any way I can, I am good at what I do, and try to learn more and more when ever I can. I have been doing LE/Security for 5 years and 2 years in the USMC. It is a career that I am not embarassed to let my son know that I have. Security is the fastest growing industry in the us today.

        I like helping people too, when i can. Like you said, there is nothing wrong with working security. I just think that we should be a more respected proffesion all together. I am LP ( not even security) and I still make my rounds and check for all kinds of stuff besides shoplifters.

        I found a stack of papers touching a heater that was on at 11pm. The store owner/my client wouldn't have found them that night and no one else would have either. The papers were not really burnt, but they were wrinkled because of the heat. His whole store would have burned down if I hadn't moved them. I am not saying that makes me special like a doctor, or a cop, or a fireman. But damn, I saved a lot there.

        It doesn't take a rocket scientist to do our job. But our function is critical. We our often the first responder. 10, 11 , 12 dollars an hour...it just doesn't seem right. Don't even get me started on no benefits etc.

        Well tlang, be safe out there.

            When employers improperly screen applicants and hire convicted felons, drug addicts, and those with anger management issues, how is anyone supposed to look at our profession with respect?

              To be honest, this guy sounds like a troll trying to purposely make security look bad. I call BS.

                      He calls these "mistakes". They're not mistakes...they're FELONIES.

                        Sounds like he's in contention to be the next heavy weight boxing champ of the world. The only thing he didn't post was that he has an ear fetish.

                              What's wrong with an ear fetish?
