EXERCISE #1 – PRIVATE SECURITY SELECTION AND TRAINING “Private Security Officer Selection and Training Guideline” is a 2010 ASIS International document that offers state regulatory agencies with “consistent minimum qualifications to improve the performance of private security officers and the quality of security services.” After thoroughly reviewing this document, describe how you, as a corporate security operative, would react to the ASIS guidance and state whether or not you would support the guidelines relating to the regulation of security and pre-assignment, post assignment, and annual training requirements. More importantly, explain your rationale and the justification you would provide to the organization’s CEO for the added annual expense that likely would result. Also, you are asked to research the state of Maryland’s private security training requirements and report it in this discussion and comment on its potential effectiveness for improving security operative performance and professionalism. REMEMBER: Be sure to cite your sources from both the Learning Materials and outside research.

After reviewing the “Prohibited Employment Policies/Practices” segment of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) website, the “Notice – Employee Polygraph Protection Act” segment of the U.S. Department of Labor’s website, the “Facts About the Americans With Disabilities Act” (ADA) segment of the U.S. Equal Opportunity Commission’s website, and any other independently researched sources, outline the procedures you would propose to the CEO—knowing there are costs attached to each procedure—and explain why each procedure is important. The CEO will want to know your rationale.
