Security Officers and Guards are professionals who work in a variety of organizations and with diverse groups of people. As such, they require the necessary skills and knowledge to enhance both personal and organizational performance. As quickly as the world and its continents change and develop, so do risks and threats of dealing with people of this world. Organizations can no longer view security departments and employees as lower-level functions. These departments and their employees need leadership and management skills which allow for alignment with the organizational vision, mission and goals.
