As front-line security officers, we understand how dangerous the world can be. Today Americans are highly concerned about their personal safety — and rightly so. Our worries concerning safety cross the spectrum — from minor accidents, to petty theft, to violent crime, to major emergencies or even terrorism.
We have a responsibility to make the public feel — and be — safe. That’s why we’re speaking out for higher standards in the security industry, fighting for better working conditions so we can reduce turnover and keep experienced officers on the job.
We’re also standing up for adequate staffing levels, proper equipment, and rigorous training–so that we can do our jobs to the best of our ability and respond to–and prevent–emergency situations.
