From the Back Cover:

Private Security and Public Safety: A Community-Based Approach is the future of prevention and protection. Few things grow as constantly and predictably as criers in American society. The level of crime and its corresponding rising costs negatively impact a great number of aspects of daily living. Private Security and Public Safety: A Community-Based Approach offers many solutions to these specific concerns and presents how the private security industry can intervene and save distressed communities. Private Security and Public Safety: A Community-Based Approach looks at the roots of public safety in the private and public sector and lays the foundation for private security in the future.

Highlights include:
  • A philosophical and functional review of the security industry: including the contrast between the public and private ideology of public safety.
  • A discussion of the trends and reemergence of the private model in the 21st century.
  • Discussions on the role and function of the Community Protection Officer – that private counterpart to the police beat patrol.
  • A strong argument ensuring private security is able to aggressively alter neighborhoods to make them less user-friendly far the criminal.
  • Suggestions for effective collaboration of public and private entities struggling to control crime in a neighborhood setting.
