Security Officers, whether contract or proprietary (in-house), can be the most costly and problematic component of a security program. They are, after all, both the human element and recurring expense portions of the program. Security Guards can be the foundation of your security program and shining representatives of your organization and security program, or they can be an embarrassment and liability risk. Your Security Officers can and should be a symbol of service, consistency, competency and professionalism in your organization as they are often the first persons encountered by visitors and customers.
Dick Sem has decades of experience as a leader in the security officer industry, as the international client and buyer of contract security guard services, and as a manager of proprietary security officer programs. He has developed and managed contract, proprietary and hybrid (mix) security guard systems. He has testified in security-related lawsuits regarding the performance of security officers.

Your security guard force should be a complementary component of a strategic and synergistic security system. It is often possible to reduce the overall cost of a security program while maintaining or increasing the level of protection by expanding the range of the Security Officers with electronic tools (e.g. CCTV, electronic access control, alarm systems, etc.).
