Research Project 20202021-01-13T14:42:13-05:00

The functional breadth, future value and return on investment of the security officer (or security professional) which would cover more than just officers if he wants.

This research will investigate the cost efficiency for an organization for the utilization of security officers (or security personnel) by identifying functional breadth and depth, expertise, specialized skills, reduction/elimination of risk, deterrent value of the role as well as profit enhancement to an organization by having this role.  It will identify current but also future scope of the security officer and the integration of this critical role into the corporate mission and goals.

This research will help to showcase and quantify the profit and reputation enhancement that security officers bring and will help to identify and measure the output and outcome of their value.
