The Role of the Security Officer is an excellent choice for individuals, private consultants or college instructors searching for an appropriate student textbook that covers the fundamentals of basic security guard training. It is written in a lively and creative style that quickly grabs and holds the attention of the reader while covering the full range of fundamentals of the armed and unarmed security guard profession. The book was written to cover requirements of Washington State Armed and Unarmed Guard licensing training requirements but it meets or exceeds training needs in other states as well. Topics covered include: Crime & Loss Prevention, Security Guards & the Criminal Justice System, Legal Powers & Limitations, Security Observation & Awareness, EEO, Diversity, Workplace Violence, Homeland Security, Safeguarding & Sharing Information, Terrorism & Surveillance, Patrol Procedures, Access Control, Emergency Response, OSHA Life Safety & Accident Prevention, Communication, Report Writing, Armed Guard Firearms Safety & Training, Use of Deadly Force, Marksmanship, Defensive Driving, Armored Truck Security, Diplomatic Security & Blending In, Handcuffs & Handcuffing. There are summaries & quiz questions at the end of each chapter and a final exam that covers the entire book. A power point CD version of the book is available to assist instructors by contacting the author via his website. Michael Jaquish has nearly thirty years of management and training experience in for the domestic and international law enforcement and private security guard fields.
