Today's society demands that the epidemic of crime be stemmed and
the basic security needs of its communities be met. Law enforcement budgets are already feeling the pressures of economic
downturns and budget reductions. More and more traditional law enforcement activities are being absorbed by private security
organizations. Their functions are to provide the security, safety and services that law enforcement agencies are unable to
With this expanded role for security comes the need for increased professional training, expertise and ability.
No longer can the watchman or rent-a-cop perform the duties that a professional security officer is expected to carry out.
The role of Security Officer and Police Officer have never before been so similar. The black and white distinctions
of yesteryear are now a continuum of grays. Lines of distinction are drawn more as the exception than the rule.
security officer cannot be the untrained individual epitomized by the stereotype of the Square Badge retiree. He or she must
be a professional whose training, education, and skill level are consistent with the complex functions and duties they are
required to perform.
The Security Officer of today is as likely to be working with sophisticated electronic detection

The Professional Security Officer is often the first responder to a crime. The officer's
actions, or inactions, can dramatically affect the disposition of an incident. If the officer's first response destroys evidence,
impedes the investigation, or otherwise interferes in the successful apprehension and prosecution of the perpetrator,Everyone
--The Community loses. --The Employer loses. --The Security Profession loses --And, ultimately,

every security officer working in the dynamic, ever-expanding, professional field of Security read the SECURITY OFFICER'S

may be requested to perform. It gives a practical interpretataion of the technical and social aspects of this truly complex
An individual who has acquired the knowledge, skills and training outlined in the SECURITY OFFICER'S MANUAL,
which is included in the NJSOA Certified Security Officer's Training Course, will undoubtedly be well equipped to carry out
the assigned duties in this exciting field.
