    Good luck in your search, Commander!

    While you're doing that, since security is a very different domain from public policing, as I learned when I made the transition, here are some references you might want to add to your library and skim, at least:

    1. Measuring Security Performance and Productivity - Richard Cole

    2. Security Operations Management - Robert McCrie

    3. Protective Security Law, 2nd Ed. - Inbau, Farber & Arnold

    4. Security and Loss Prevention - Philip P. Purpura

    5. The Design and Evaluation of Physical Protection Systems - Mary Lynn Garcia

    6. Security Metrics Management - Kovacich and Halibozek

    7. Corporate Security Administration and Management - Barefoot and Maxwell

    8. Rethinking Corporate Security in the Post 9/11 Era - Dennis Dalton

    9. Principles of Security Management - Brian Johnson

    10. Practical Security Training - Patrick Kane

    ...and, of course, be sure you're really, really up on the laws of Illinois regarding security services.

    Security is a business, first and foremost, whether it's an independent agency or a department within a larger organization, so I would also strongly recommend some business management reading such as:

    1. The McGraw-Hill 36-Hour Course in Finance for Nonfinancial Managers - Robert Cooke

    2. Market Leadership Strategies for Service Companies - Terrill & Middlebrooks

    3. The Unnatural Act of Management - Everett Suters

    ...and the like.

    Again - best wishes!
