Congratulations to all of the officers on their awards and to the IAHSS for recognizing them. There is no doubt that security officers are first-responders -- a title reserved for police officers, firefighters and emergency medical personnel in the past -- and as such, they run toward danger when most run the other way. Their bravery does not go unnoticed -- IFPO.October 22, 2019 CampusSafetyMagazine.com
At least ten lives were saved this year by hospital security officers who were recognized by the Los Angeles and Orange County, Calif., chapter of the International Association for Healthcare Security and Safety (IAHSS) last week. In all, 25 officers were honored at a luncheon that was held Oct. 16 in Los Angeles.
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.
