              There are lots of books available. The way to look for a book on any subject using Google is to use this formula:

              subject ISBN (enclose subject in quotes if more than one word so Google will treat it as a phrase term)

              ...for instance:

              "hotel security" ISBN

              "hospitality security" ISBN

              "lodging security" ISBN....etc.

              The reason for including ISBN as a search term is because that's the official "serial number" that is given to (most) every published book, so including this term almost assures that you'll find books instead of other things related to your subject.

              Also, you'll find that hospitality security topics are often included in books on hospitality management, operations management, facilities management, etc. so you might also try those as your subject search terms and then check out the Table of Contents of the book if possible.

              Don't forget search phrases such as "emergency management" and "risk management" as well, using a search term like:

              hospitality "risk management" ISBN

              hotel "emergency management" ISBN...etc.

              Finally, if you do a search on Amazon for "lodging security", "hotel security", etc. you'll find that a lot of the "state-of-the-art" material won't be found in books, but in professional journal articles that you can purchase from Amazon for immediate download, usually for $5-6 per article.

              Also, lodging and hospitality organizations that have training programs often sell the text books that they use in their courses (or, better still, take the courses!). Here's a book from the American Hotel & Lodging Association's Educational Institute, for instance:

              http://www.ei-ahla.org/shop/scripts/...rder&strSearch

              ....and here's a page from the course based on that book that tells you more about the contents. Click on each chapter link to see a good description of the contents and the related competencies that the course expects the student to develop by studying that chapter:
