9780124116252: From the Files of a Security Expert Witness

From the Files of a Security Expert Witness guides the reader through the experience of testifying in court on security issues in civil litigation. Written by one of the security profession's best-known expert witnesses, the book explores 36 cases that reflect the high drama of true crime, including kidnapping, rape, and murder. Many of these cases led to premises liability lawsuits based on claims of negligence, inadequate security, false arrest and imprisonment, excessive use of force, and others. Effective security specialists, whether or not they are considering becoming expert witnesses, should be familiar with the facts of these cases, their theories of liability and theories of defense.

Encompassing aspects of criminal and tort law, all within the context of forensic security consulting, this book offers valuable insights from an experienced security professional.

  • Understand the role of a security expert witness through his involvement in actual civil lawsuits driven by criminal acts
  • Explore the expert witness's role in liability litigation, from forming opinions to being able to intelligently present beliefs to the legal community as well as to juries
  • Learn practical, in-depth guidelines for becoming an expert witness through the firsthand experiences of a court-recognized authority

From the Back Cover:

A detailed collection of first-hand experiences in crime-related litigation from one of the security industry's most respected expert witnesses!

Written by one of America's best-known security expert witnesses, From the Files of a Security Expert Witness explores 35 lawsuits which reflect the tragic consequences of violent crime and gross negligence. These matters made their way into the civil court system in which the author played a role. Cases included in the book range from kidnapping, rape, and murder to tortious (wrongful) acts stemming from issues such as inadequate security measures dealing with public safety and false arrests of innocent people. From the Files of a Security Expert Witness provides a fresh and insightful journey through some very brutal crimes, clarifying the methodology of a true expert in forming his opinions and the civil justice litigation process thereafter, with its inevitable consequences.

Charles "Chuck" Sennewald, CPP, CSC, CPO, a graduate of California State University at Los Angeles with a degree in Police Science and Administration, commenced his long career in law enforcement and security upon graduation from the Army's Military Police School in 1949 and subsequent police service in the Korean War. He later served as a Deputy Sheriff with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, Chief of Campus Police with the Claremont Colleges, and Director of Security with a major department store chain. In 1979 he established his security management consulting practice. He initially focused on providing guidance to major businesses on an international basis but evolved into an emphasis on forensic consulting. He serviced both defense and plaintiff law firms and over the next three decades was retained in 677 lawsuits from Florida to Alaska, as well as Pacific territories.

Mr. Sennewald is the founder and first president of the International Association of Professional Security Consultants (IAPSC), the American Society for Industrial Security and the recipient of numerous professional awards. He is the author of more than 20 books including Effective Security Management, The Process of Investigation, and Security Consulting.
