9780750671392: Industrial Security, Second Edition

A basic text on general security techniques, this book emphasizes the philosophical, moral and ethical responsibilities of the security officer, along with the elements of various specialties within the field.

This book is designed for not only the beginning student, but for ambitious security personnel seeking advancement and directors training staff in the field.
It is important for security personnel, in this age of the computer, to understand the background and basic elements of security procedures. It is also important to understand this philosophy in order to develop programs which may be used in defending against charges of "inadequate security" in civil litigation.



This book is an update of a beginning text which has been used successfully in colleges and universities for twenty years. It updates the techniques of various specialties along with current technological approaches towards solving those security-related issues. It has left unchanged the philosophical, moral, and ethical approach to the security procedures, the abandonment of which has led to literally thousands of lawsuits against security departments and private guard companies, alleging "inadequate security" procedures, hiring and training.

New technologies, in almost every subcategory of the security industry, have changed the profession forever. Computers have assumed much of the performance formerly conducted by both trained and untrained security officers. Skills have changed to a degree where knowledge is determined by one's level of computer awareness. This book presents many of those new techniques and developments.

Updated and current information
Retains philosophical, moral and ethical approach to security procedures
Three contributed articles from specialists in their individual fields

About the Author:

David L Berger is a veteran of 44 years in private security and law enforcement. He began his career as a private investigator. During his 18 years as a guard company owner he developed primary techniques of security system design for major buildings and complexes within the retail, commercial, industrial, and residential fields. He pioneered the use of closed circuit television in security, having come from the broadcasting industry in the early days of television. He is experienced as a corporate director of security for major companies in Southern California and was possibly the first professional security consultant to become involved in the forensic practice for civil litigation.
