Overview

Why are the cops never there when you need them? The authors of this book have come to a startling conclusion. The answer, because that is not their job. The Public police are a reactive entity who’s main function is to apprehend criminals and bring them to justice after a crime has been committed. The private security sector police, the security guards, are the only ones that are on the scene before during and after the commission of a crime. They are the only entity in a position to actually prevent crime. This book explains the reasoning behind this premise, and covers many recommendations on how and why the private security sector should take a greater role in protecting our citizens from crime and terrorism.

    Are you kidding me?

    Anyone can call themselves a security consultant and anyone call call themselves experienced. It doesn't mean that they have a clue as to what they are talking about. I had all I could do to get through this dribble. Saying the same thing over and over with information that is not based in anything that is near factual, this book almost made me hurl. The unwarrented scare tactics and misinformation runs rampant in this book. Claims that Neighborhood Watch programs put your families life in danger is an outright lie. The fact is, they have proven to drastically reduce crime. Arming security guards borders the on insane. Do you really want someone that could not get a job as a real police officer carrying a gun around a crowded shopping mall, hospital, school? I could go on and on about what is so grossly wrong with this book.

    You must change the way you think about crime prevention

    I have spent over thirty five years in this business of Public safety and Security with many executive positions held both in State and private areas. Since 1968, I have many files that prove my theories, and my education, and experiences have touched public safety and security in ways that most have not. If my Partner and I put all our research, education, and experiences in this book, the book would have been over 500 pages! However, the product we ended up with is short enough for even the light readers would read. Our point is repeated because for years people have looked for the police to prevent crime, and in order to convience the public that we must look at the police in a different way, or we will never stop terrorist attacks in USA, we had to repeat the theory many, many times through out the book. Reading our new book from cover to cover would allow you to see with your minds eye that crime prevention and terrorist attacks prevention is not up to the police! The entity that is needing attention to help us prevent crime and terrorist attacks is told to call the police! If this continues! Terrorist attacks will happen in Hospitals, Shopping malls, Universities, and so many other complexes right here in the USA! Please! Read our new book, and spread the words! After you read the book, give it to your local library! We need to get the public educated about our theory now! Terrorist attack threat is reality! Mark our words!
