  • I've worked both. It definitely helps if you have enough field supervisors or mobile patrol officers that you can call for back up when needed. I've had situations where I really didn't want to call PD but would have liked another S/O with me, especially with unarmed sites.

    Keep track...

    The younger crowd remember Conway as the voice of Barnacle Boy on Spongebob Squarepants. The meta joke in that one is both he and Ernest Borgnine (Mermaid Man) starred in another nautical TV show in the 60s - "McHale's Navy."

    And Conway deliberately trying to get Carol Burnett...

    Another legend lost. She is probably best known as an actress, but was also a singer. She played independent working women at a time when the stay at home mom was still the the ideal. She portrayed the Good Girl, even though she was married four times. She could do drama and comedy, although her...

    Ah, a good topic, even for the young guards - start that Roth IRA now. I plan to retire when it makes sense financially and I can collect Social Security. (The later you collect, the more money you get, so not retiring any time soon.) I am on my way - my house is paid for, although I will probably...

  • Actually, DJB204 brings up a good point - language changes constantly. I wonder if there are any other terms that used to be standard that aren't anymore?
    I know "ICE" used to be short for "In Case of Emergency;" I don't use that abbreviation anymore because people would...

  • Sadly, I think tech culture, popular music artists and the fads of the wealthy to look like they're poor have led to the culture we have today. You've probably seen the meme, "Hobo or hipster?" Sometimes I really have to look to determine which. The ripped jean look that young women of means...

  • I've learned to be OK with a few concessions, just because if it is a "business casual" place and the workers are young, you're going to have a tough time finding people without tattoos, etc. But there has to be common sense. On one site hair had to be tucked under the hat or inside the...

    The motor thing reminds me of an incident at a new building I worked at. I wasn't there for the specifics, but I guess two motors that pumped sprinkler system water to the upper floors of the building ran all night with no water - both burned out and cost the owner thousands of dollars. (And there is...

    Another tip for newbie guards (and supervisors): do a good debriefing after big incidents. It is a great way to hone skills, vent and learn. For guards, be respectful, even if you didn't agree with a a supervisor's decision. Ask questions - what should be done better next time? For supervisors, explain...

    replied to O.C. Pouch Recommendations
    Uncle Mike's stuff used to be good & rugged, haven't bought anything lately. I can't recommend Quartermaster's Law Pro series anymore, for the exact reason you mention. (Their velcro close pouches also wear out too quickly - they need a better Chinese factory).
