|IF IT IS TO BE- IT'S UP TO ME
A phrase that has been overused but nonetheless has significant meaning for us today as we talk
about our pledge to take advance level and skilled based officer safety courses even when our
employer, the client, the state or our security license does not require us to do so.
Our training, all of which is perishable if not used and replenished, is not necessarily for the benefit of
our employer or governmental regulators or to meet statutory requirements but instead they are for
our own personal safety as we face the increasingly unknown dangers of our everyday duties.
It is imperative that we take our safety and the safety of those that we have been hired to protect
seriously and do whatever it takes to be at a high level of proficiency with our tools as well as with our
overall knowledge and understanding or our profession, duties, scope of authority and the laws that
both govern us and those that we use in any enforcement duty.
It makes no difference if you're in the security profession part time or full time, temporarily or as a
career, you "Must" make it your responsibility to be well prepared and well trained at any cost.
The criminals don't care if you're a new hire or a seasoned veteran and they won't show mercy on you
whether you're 20 years old or 70. It makes no difference to them whatsoever!
Regardless of assignment, duties, city,or country, the likelihood of you having an interaction with
someone who won't respect you, refuses to comply with your commands and who engages you in
some level of physical resistance or assault is high and becoming higher everyday as the duties and
enforcement authority of private security officers continue to increase substantially.
Your safety and well being is your responsibility and it begins and ends with you. You've chosen this
profession for whatever reason, now you must take every step possible to stay safe, on and off duty.
If it is to be, it's up to me never rang truer as it does here and now. YOU must take your job, your
safety and the safety of others seriously, as if your life depends upon it..........because it does!
