    I have read that to. It always puzzled me because LE takes an oath to uphold the constitution and defend the United States. Since representatives of the US, governors and the president, sign bills into laws that the police enforce, it would seem that defending the US would include defending it's laws as well.
    They have a duty to protect the jurisdiction as a whole. This stems from the reactive nature of enforcement. Security Officers, as well, do not have a legal responsibility to protect indvidual tenants at an apartment complex, for example, against vehicle theft.

    This arouse out of lawsuits that the police are there to protect the individual, and should of prevented or immediately intervined in the illegal activity that the plaintiff in the civil case suffered.

    This stems from 'we cannot be everywhere at once, and that does include your business when your being robbed.'

    Role of Security

    Also you have to remember that the US Supreme Court has ruled that PD is not required to provide protection to individuals or businesses. (paraphrased the h3ll out of that but...).

    Everyone knows you are most likely to be hit with a crime instead of a terrorist incident but the possibility is always there. If you are working a security detail then someone thinks that place/person needs some sort of protection from something.

    If PD does not provide protection then it is a must that other means of security be available. Sure a WB standing there might stop a shoplifter or maybe even a purse snatcher but the WB WILL NOT stop a terrorist.

    Even a trained security unit would be hard pressed to stop a well planned and coordinated attack but would be able to at least slow them to the point of giving reinforcements time to arrive.

    That being said, we must get the training. Any and all training will beneifit in some way. From non-verbal communications to criminal/terrorist phsycology to armed tactics and all in between.

    Selling the idea to the customer base is where the hard part will be because as the article stated complacency is setting in.

    The police have very limited resources, capital and personnel, to protect the general public from terrorists. Corporations and other high profile sites will continue to turn to private security as a solution if further attacks occur. I would not be surprised to see the powers of security expanded as more and more people realize that the police are quickly overwhelmed and outnumbered when disasters such as the New Orleans hurricane occur. Perhaps LE will tap security as a mutual aid option to maintain order in such cases until the military can respond.

    Corporations have mind-boggling sums of cash that can and will be used to implement whatever security is needed to protect their day-to-day operations.

    Private Security Roles- Post 9/11

    I will attest to this one fact. There are more citizens in this country than there are city, state, and federal law enforcement officers, combined. There IS a need for some other entity, to help offset that ratio. Meaning, Private Security Officers must become more dynamic than ever before! The Post-9/11 era has opened more doors than ever before. The business of Private Security WILL become, "recession-proof". Every security officer out there, should constantly work towards educating yourselves and bettering yourselves. The more (we) improve and evolve, the better we will be able to stay in the business indefinitely.
    I am a 34 year old man, that has been in the private security field for 8 years. I have only a HS Diploma, but a vast knowledge, from on-the-job experience. Experience you cannot learn from a textbook. But, I WILL become educated, and gain college degrees, so I do not get weeded out.
