There are few textbooks available that outline the foundation of security principles while reflecting the modern practices of private security as an industry. Private Security: An Introduction to Principles and Practice takes a new approach to the subject of private sector security that will be welcome addition to the field. The book focuses on the recent history of the industry and the growing dynamic between private sector security and public safety and law enforcement. Coverage will include history and security theory, but emphasis is on current practice, reflecting the technology-driven, fast-paced, global security environment. Such topics covered include a history of the security industry, security law, risk management, physical security, Human Resources and personnel, investigations, institutional and industry-specific security, crisis and emergency planning, critical infrastructure protection, IT and computer security, and more. Rather than being reduced to single chapter coverage, homeland security and terrorism concepts are referenced throughout the book, as appropriate. Currently, it vital that private security entities work with public sector authorities seamlessly—at the state and federal levels—to share information and understand emerging risks and threats. This modern era of security requires an ongoing, holistic focus on the impact and implications of global terror incidents; as such, the book’s coverage of topics consciously takes this approach throughout. Highlights include: Details the myriad changes in security principles, and the practice of private security, particularly since 9/11 Focuses on both foundational theory but also examines current best practices—providing sample forms, documents, job descriptions, and functions—that security professionals must understand to perform and succeed Outlines the distinct, but growing, roles of private sector security companies versus the expansion of federal and state law enforcement security responsibilities Includes key terms, learning objectives, end of chapter questions, Web exercises, and numerous references—throughout the book—to enhance student learning Presents the full range of career options available for those looking entering the field of private security Includes nearly 400 full-color figures, illustrations, and photographs. Private Security: An Introduction to Principles and Practice provides the most comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of modern security issues and practices on the market. Professors will appreciate the new, fresh approach, while students get the most "bang for their buck," insofar as the real-world knowledge and tools needed to tackle their career in the ever-growing field of private industry security. An instructor’s manual with Exam questions, lesson plans, and chapter PowerPoint® slides are available upon qualified course adoption.

Security in 2025 employs a modern technique to peer into the future, crowdsourcing a vision from the minds of 34 security professionals. The book’s contributors, ranging from new entrants to long-time veterans of the field, offer their predictions on a wide range of security topics from many different perspectives. Some chapters (on high-rise buildings, kidnapping, and electricity distribution, for example) extrapolate from existing trends. Others (on drones and knife attacks) address issues that are just emerging. The book addresses such diverse topics as analytical methodologies to predict terrorism and the future of security officer training. It is likely you will have heard of at least one of the editors (who also contribute useful chapters on loss prevention and 100 security issues that will impact security in the next decade). A well-known contributor is former ASIS President Geoff Craighead. He writes on the future of risk management in high-rise buildings, an area where he has developed an expertise. Another renowned contributor is Joshua Sinai, author the ASIS-published book, Active Shooter: A Handbook on Prevention, 2nd Ed. Security managers, security consultants, and students taking security management courses will find this book to be an invaluable resource. -- Provided by publisher.
