Originally designed as a reference text for the Law and Security programs at both community and career colleges, Patrol Procedures also serves as a valuable learning resource for private security professionals.
This text offers an in-depth overview of fundamental security principles. Opening with an introduction to the history and nature of private security, the text moves on to examine specific security procedures in detail, including mall, office tower, and stairwell patrols, bomb threats, and crime scene preservation. In addition, office safety, an important, but often overlooked topic is discussed and promoted throughout. A supplementary chapter on Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is also included, rounding out this well-written and user-friendly text.
