You get to work in a field where you provide public services you can feel good about such as:
Emergency support: If there is an emergency event such as a fire, your training will provide order and calm to support the responders when they do arrive. Security training also includes CPR training. Being qualified to provide medical attention if someone falls ill as a trained first line of response while waiting for medical assistance can be the difference between life and death.
Loss prevention: Companies and the economy all suffer from theft. Loss prevention training will make you a part of the important sector of the population responsible for helping businesses thrive. Preventing loss helps businesses be more successful and the economy do well, which has a positive effect on us all.
Protecting the Public: Controlling a situation before it can escalate, and providing public safety, maintaining order while authorities are called, keeps members of the community safe and offers peace of mind to those attending large events, or public spaces.
