    Thanks for the info, GCMC - you is de MAN!

      I just noticed on IAHSS.ORG if you have the 3rd edition of the Basic manual you need to take the exam by 12/31/2007. They've come out with the 4th edition now.

        True - hospitals are unique security venues, as I've mentioned before. They also have a whole bunch of safety and legal requirements that affect the security operation. I'd want people to have the formal training in those areas that the CPO does not cover.

        And, the CPP seems like a pretty stiff requirement for supervisors, since it requires a bachelor's degree plus other experience. Usually, CPP is a requirement for security program managers. If he's going with the CPO for officers, why not go with the CSS (Certified Security Supervisor) cert from the IFPO for supervisors?

        The only reasoning I can think of (and it really isn't fair for me to say this) is that other hospitals in your area would be much more interested in hiring officers away from your organization if you guys had the CHSS cert and might not give much credence at all to the CPO (in the hospital setting, I mean, not because CPO is necessarily a bad cert itself).

        Vurry puzzling indeed....
        I actually wouldn't want to work at any other hospital in the Twin Cities metro area because we are the highest paid and the only hospital security in MN to get P.E.R.A. (Public Employee Retirement Association) "correctional officer" pension, excluding VA police of course. I do agree though that the CPO does not have much to do with hospital security work.

          You only had to say the words "public employee pension" and that was reason enough! Hang onto that, for sure.
