Are your students equipped for their careers in a world in which 
organized crime and terrorism are on the rise?

 Private Security in the 21st Century: Concepts and Applications informs the learner about the historical development of private security and provides new information for educating and training private security personnel in the beginning stages of their career, whether they are a full time student or entry level security worker on the job. Each chapter serves as a “crash course” on the different security fields. Unlike other textbooks on Private Security, this text covers a wide variety of private security jobs in the private security field and step by step “How to” sections for college learners, trade school students, private security personnel, law enforcement personnel, business students, and other individuals who want to learn “How to” information in a quick and efficient manner. Private Security in the 21st Century: Concepts and Applications not only provides the background information that a prospective security person should know, but also describes the basic operational procedures students need to understand.
