Overview

Private Security and the Law, Third Edition, is uniquely designed for the needs of private security practitioners and students of private security. This book fills a major void in publishing in the area of private security law. Other available books in this area are outdated and do not cover the latest updates to the evolving standards in this industry. First published in 1989, this book has achieved excellence in previous editions and is well respected by both educators and professionals. It provides analysis of significant practices in the security industry that relate to law, regulation, licensure and constitutional dilemmas according to case and statutory authority. The text delivers current information on the legal requirements faced by most security firms. In addition, it dwells heavily on the liability problems common to security operations, including negligence and tortious liability, civil actions commonly litigated, and strategies to avoid troublesome causes of action that affect business efficiency.
