Why do people join the security sector more by chance than choice? What keeps them involved? What are the best and worst things about a security career? In this special webinar -- sponsored by the International Foundation for Portection Officers (IFPO) -- Perpetuity Research representatives will discuss their upcoming research project that seeks to provide answers to these very questions.
Lead researchers Professor Martin Gill and Charlotte Howell will share their thoughts on what they hope to discover from their research. This webinar will address:
-- To what extent has the role of frontline security operatives changed for the better?
-- What needs to change now to enhance the role?
-- How can recent developments lead to a broader recognition of improvements and lead to a sustained enhancement of image?
