    I can respect that you choose to work in the capacity that you do. It probably means you're more outstanding in that position based on the fact that you've given consideration to your needs, and seek out a post that facilitates those needs. I have no problem with that at all.

    It's tough to work unarmed, more so than most people give credit for. Your senses and abilities have to be fine-tuned because your escape options are limited. Your wits alone might save your life, rather than a well placed shot-group! Not that unarmed security is any less important, just a little more limited.
    Thank you, Sir.

      Sometimes, it's just a personality conflict. The officer may be an outstanding worker and held in high esteem by his immediate supervisor. Nevertheless, if the client’s facility manager doesn’t like the officer, he/she is "outta there."

        JimmyHat and N.A.,

        Thanks for setting me straight, guys. Maybe I'm just a tad sensitive! Seriously, I believe that any change that legitimizes the role of the private security officer and forces their employer to treat them with the respect they deserve is a good thing. That level of respect varies from state to state. Here in Texas, legislators finally passed a bill last year that makes the penelty for assualing a private security officer the same as assualting a police officer. That's progress!

        Please don't intrepret my posts as restatements of a past world. My mission is to help you fellows (and ladies) reach your potential (if I didn't care, I wouldn't be in this forum). I do that by hopefully helping my client companies see the errors of their ways!

          This measure was passed into law and they have another pending that makes the murder of an on-duty commissioned (armed) security officer a capitol felony. Are you aware of any other pending legislation in our favor? I'm currently at a loss to find anything new.
