Security Officers are First Responders to accidents, incidents, crime scenes, and all the other things that can and will happen in a shopping mall, a residential area, outlets, commercial complexes, bars and nightclubs. The number of Security Officers killed or injured far exceeds the number of Law Enforcement Officers. Security Officers are usually closer, they’re more accessible, and the response threshold over the Police is much lower.
