    I don't know... you tell me. I'm not trying to pick a fight, but I am more or less trying to get some clarification. You claim to be, or claim to have once been, many things. As each day passes, more members are beginning to smell a foul odor in the air in regards to your claims. No offense, but i'm sure if the roles were reversed you would likely feel the same way.

      That is both the funniest thing I have read for a while, and a terrible (and sometimes true) reflection of our industry.

      I currently perform varied duties from Reception to health & safety functions to risk assessments for an inhouse operation.

We often get called by the police and handed calls for properties we dont service because they dont have the man power to handle the call.
        5-8?? WOW that's a small district... (From my experience, anyway.. lol)

        Currently, I'm an armed patrol officer as well. I just switched from the routine graveyard patrols, (usually 20-30 properties, depending on the district), to doing dayshift. On dayshift, we do a lot less of the 'routine' patrolling, but we have a lot more calls for service. We also handle a lot of alarms, etc.

        Prior to this, I worked as an in-house officer at an apartment complex for almost 2 years, I worked as a customer service manager for GM for a year, was head of security at a shopping mall, and have had a couple other security-related jobs through the years. Overall, I've been in "the business" for about 8-9 years now, basically since I got out of high school.

          I have been abundantly clear in what my professional education background is and I have been abundantly clear in what my professional work background has entailed and I have been abundantly clear in what my [current] employment entails... There is no need for further "clairification" (sic) when I have already been clear. It is apparent, however, that particular individuals want to see and hear what they want, despite what is plainly written, for no other purpose than to deliberately try to spark fights and de-rail the topic being discussed. Maybe others should focus on actually being respectful to the people who take the time to post a thread by not making comments that they know, should know or can reasonably be expected to know will spark fights and / or that will de-rail the subject being discussed.... but respect seems to be a four letter word among particular individuals in this forum.

              Just one thing, Chris, you haven't been clear at all about your background. I think if you stepped back and looked at what you've post you'd see why there is confusion and even mistrust about what you are saying.

              People in our line of work can spot BS a mile away. When you have a poster who makes very grandiose and conflicting claims (like the walking contradiction of a rank-in-file S/O "criminologist" lol), we get suspicious. Anyone on the internet can claim anything they want.

              My advice to you is either A] tone down the high sounding talk of your "qualifications" or B] be more clear about your background.

              Being vague about your background and THEN being defensive about it when people call you on it isn't the most mature or professional path a a person could take......

                Currently I'm an S/O soon to be a SGT. with 12 others + the Chief Security Director for a local shopping mall that is of a CRE status moreso than O&R. The unit is ran like a military security force and looks the part as well, in all black uniforms and optional US Army Ranger Patrol Cap with the word "Security" written in white across the top. Almost all of us are ex military and/or ex LEO, with (3) of the Security Unit being USN and US Army Reservists within the capacity of Military Police, Infantry, and computer specialists. *Personally I'm a LV III Commissioned PSO, but the mall property managers don't want the security unit armed, no matter how much prior knowledge/training/experience the staff has had previously. I was never military myself, but was raised by the old guard military with a pious DI for a father who gave me the 10 yrs of MCT [military combat training] with a few others he served with growing up.

                The mall has two convention centres attatched to either end, so we're busy all the time, and the post is honestly like working a military installation minus the firearms. Equipment of carry is ... Radio w. ear piece/shirt mic, handcuffs, flash light, {and finally} a gravity stick BKA: "Aspe". I along with the others work very closely with the subcity (city within a city municipality) police department, and we basically have to regulate at least 5 times a day. There's rarely a dull day and it's great being able to make a difference. The mall tenants never hesitate to call on us as we respond usually within less than a minute to any point on the property and they know we hold it down. This has been a completely *new* experience however, as I recently left doing CRE (Contract Regulation Enforcement) posts @ Government Housing Complexes, Construction Sites, and the occassional Credit Union, within the LV III capacity fielding with the pistol in my sig pic. Been working as a PSO for 5 years off and on, (the last 2 the most active), and am currently about to undergo LV IV certification for bodyguard work. Unlike working alone or with only one other PSO however, the mall security has turned out to be quite interesting.

                    Yep, they sure can and that's why I do not obsess over things folks say about themselves, on the Internet; I take it with a grain of salt because at the end of the day all that does matter to me, is what exists in real life.

                            Currently transistioning..

                            I dont know why I had to bite, but OK..

                            Essentially what my job description comes down to, is a public figure to take scrutiny when the public, corporate and clients have issues! LOL! I have been under so much retarded fire lately, its disturbing! LOL!

                            What I actually do, is impliment selection of new staff, training procedures, protocol for operations, liazoning with a variety of entities, ensuring that enforcement of site rules are conducted, and so on.. ! LOL!

                            In the past, some LE work, but mostly military. I have worked for a variety of small to large agencies in a variety of states.

                            Whats interesting, is what I am undergoing, which is a transition to LE. I am sitting at the halfway mark for a PD selection process. I needed a change and want to stretch my legs and mind some more!

                              I like the one about being an insurance adjustor... we make your rates go up or down. I told my boss about this and he laughed but said it was all too true.

                                I started out wanting to be a chef, but hated working in restaurants and couldn't really cook that well. I worked as a kennel attendent in high school as well. I got into security in 92 when I was 19. I have my law enforcement degree, but never became a cop. I have a lot of friends that are cops and while there are things about their jobs I envy, they also envy my job. It is the whole grass is greener thing.

                                I am in in house corporate security now, but have worked in a hospital, office complex, manufacturing plant, college, theater, and as a mobile patrol officer.
