      When I look at the glacially slow pace of technology adoption in the security industry, at least as far as "officer-related technology" is concerned (technology costs money!), I am not optimistic that much will really change by 2025. There are technologies that came on the scene 10, 15 or more years ago that you would think every security officer would have by now, but security company executives are downright famous for knowing the price of everything and the value of nothing.

      The usual progression for the adoption of technologies such as those on the link you provide is:

      military --> police --------(years go by)------------------------> security (if ever)

      Our industry is pretty quick to adopt technologies having to do with alarms, sensors, fancy locks, access systems, cameras, etc., but not technologies that are directly related to officer "wearable/carry" type gear. I heard a rumor, for instance, that there's something out now called a "bullet-proof vest". Just imagine a vest that can protect you from being shot to death! Well, this is probably nothing but another Internet myth, but if it were true that there was such a thing, you might expect at least the majority of security officers to be equipped with them, given the number of security officers who are shot every year.

      Did I mention that security executives know the price of everything and the value of nothing? I did? Well, that's doubly true when it comes to equipping their officers.

      Oh, and another thing. Some of the new technologies would require training in their use, yet another barrier to their being adopted by security companies. I hear, for instance, that there's this thing called a "firearm". It reportedly goes "boom" and then a little piece of lead flies out the end of a tube-like thingie at very high velocity, the idea being to take down someone else who is also equipped with such a device. I grant you that this invention is probably just another myth to go with the bullet-proof vest, but if it were true, I would imagine such a useful device would require training, and so you don't have to ask me whether most security officers would have them...

      I think I might have mentioned that security executives know the price of everything and the value of nothing. Apologies if I repeat myself. Well, that is TRIPLY true when it comes to training their officers.

        Well, what with inflation and all, he or she will be making $11 an hour.

        The SO of the future will most likely be replaced with cctv, which will be far far cheaper than an SO. Computers will still be stupider than even the stupidest warm body SO. The result will be more incidents, until some bright person grasps the difference between "proactive" and "reactive".

        The SO of the future will have access to more information. The SO of the future will carry small, cheap handheld computers giving him access to CCTV live and recorded, warrant info, site layout, first aid, tactical information, and troubleshooting information for every piece of equipment on site. The computers will be broken or missing half the time, training will be a joke, and most SOs will use the computers for ****ography and chatting on the internet.

        The SO of the future will be smarter, better educated, healthier, and stronger than ever before, due to improvements in education and healthcare. Unfortunatly, the SO will spend most of his time sending people text messages, as he never learned to be alone with his thoughts, and cannot concentrate on any one subject for more than 30 seconds at a time.

        Security management will be the best educated, best equiped, best trained, most knowledgable in history. Unfortunatly they will not be allowed to actually do anything due to insurance restrictions and various legal problems.

        In other words; technology always changes. Human nature never changes.

          I wonder what will make this happen, seeing as all this quite possible now and ain't happening, at least on any scale that matters. My wife is a nurse and she started using a PDA about a thousand years ago, as did most other healthcare professionals. Then (I can't remember when), the PDA went wireless and they all got Internet access. That must have happened about 500 years ago. They can do everything on those little buggers, from accessing patient records to sending prescriptions to pharmacies to dictating their reports to looking up something on the Poison Control website to reading about the latest medical device on a medical blog site to...well, you name it.

          Comparatively, the PDA - wireless or otherwise - has barely scratched the surface of the security industry in terms of being issued to officers.

          ...and I will thank the members for refraining from forwarding this message to my wife, as she is not quite as old as the exaggerations above might imply (it is a dirty lie that she served in the Civil War) and I would prefer not to have to eat frozen dinners for the next week.

            Honestly, I think the only thing different will be that the security officer in 2025 will be wearing one patch, nearly everywhere. The multi-nationals will buy each other until we have one massive super-company, with smaller sub-firms to get around the anti-trust laws.

              "... get around antitrust and government security requirements sounds better, Nathan. No foreign decisions to be made involving US Government contracts is the way it is supposed to be. Don't bet money, marbles and chalk on that one.

                Seeing as it's in use now, I figure that 20 years should be long enough for the technology to filter to the security industry.

                  My guess is that security officers of the future will look a lot like the police officers of today, while the police officers of today will look different. Security officers have always been a step behind law enforcement, as is the case today, and as will continue to be the case in the future.

                    We all know that by 2025 ALL weapons will be banned. We will be eating with rubber utensils so we can't hurt anyone. Security guards will have to have rubber pens and radios. The only weapons would be your hands and feet but the new uniforms will restrict your arms and legs from travelling any more than 6 inches from your body. We will also be required to wear a mouthpiece so we can't bite anyone.

                    The criminals will be allowed to have any weapon of choice. If they shoot you and you don't die they can sue you and your family for negligent survival. Security will patrol in old Vespa scooters that have governors that restrict the speed to 4 mph so you can't run anyone over or catch up with the criminal.

                    Of course all of this will begin when Hillary is president, continue after her 8 year reign, then progress under president Sharpton.

                      A little off topic but along the lines of the above:

                      I flew to Northern Ireland for a wedding this past spring. My wife is the music director at a church. The president of Air Canada goes to this church. When my wife told him we were flying Air Canada he gave us a complimentary upgrade to first class (Thank-you Mr. Milton!). In first class you get a metal fork & spoon but plastic knife. So you can stab someone with the fork but can't cut them
                      I enforce rules and regulations, not laws.

                        I'd have to agree... the adoption of 'smarter working' technologies is comparable to molasses in winter, I do however envisage some advances to our overall general appearance that being the almost entire replacement of the iconic 'bunch of keys' with a wallet of swipecard or smartcards, potentially smaller/brighter torches/flashlights with the advent of LED technology (especially if the SOs purchase it them selves) & possibly some improved type of material for our uniforms than can breathe better, and maintain a wrinkle free appearance

                        Realistically the world isn't getting any nicer to live/work in, there's no shortage of scum the world over all out for what that can get, take, steal OR damage, and while I can see an increased need for specialist security services (like that offered by Hank's CIS) I'd also like to hope at least by then the adoption of PPE has made substantial progress industry wide...

                          I believe there will be more electronic countermeasures such as DNA for validity of ID as this is pretty much unique to every person 99.99999% I think is the figure. There will be more self checkouts, etc (being trialled in Australia) and cash will be basically dead apart from pre-paid cards goverened by biometrics. As for the traditional security officer we will see alot of changes and a reduction in services but at the same time, we will find more and more gated communities I think.

                          I also see the World Series will be for all teams and not the USA and Canada, American Football and ballet will be on the same level of toughness until they play like real men without pads or helmets and 1/2 the team and hurry the bloody game up into 90 minutes (with Janet Jackson 1/2 time show - LOL) and space travel computed by Windows 4 Billion.
