Have you ever had an uninvited houseguest or an unexpected visitor? Maybe it was a neighbor who interrupted dinner preparations and chatted just a little bit too long. Perhaps it was an out-of-town family member who popped over to your place unannounced. Or maybe the visitor was a friend who took advantage of your offer to let her stay with you for a few days but then it turned into Day 12 with no end in sight.
Then again, I suppose I could be completely wrong here. Your unwanted visitor could have been a burglar or even a potential rapist, just like the media is apparently reporting nowadays. You read that right: Instead of saying “criminals” or “thieves,” the media has taken to describing lawbreakers as “unwanted house visitors.”
Here’s a recent example that got people talking: On Jan. 10, 2019, NBC New York tweeted: “Police say a New Jersey man fought off an unwanted house visitor by using the suspect’s own gun, ultimately killing him.”
The International Foundation for Protection Officers (IFPO) is dedicated to providing meaningful and cost effective security training for security guards and protection officers.
We believe that education is a necessary and essential part of professional security training and the security officer’s background. IFPO serves individuals, security companies, and organizations that have their own private security staff. Our students and members benefit from the recognition and standing that the prestigious IFPO certification conveys.
