Terrance Gainer, former US Senate Sergeant at Arms, talks about the need for law enforcement, private security companies, and business owners to work together to help protect American neighborhoods and cities.
Budget cuts, limited physical and human resources...terms heard all too frequently in the wake of 2008's Great Recession. The stark economic set-back caused by the Housing Bubble did not just affect the private sector, but the public sector as well, including law enforcement departments across the country. "Do more with less" is the mantra of many organizations today, but there is a limit to what can be effectively accomplished. And with the public's safety in their hands, law enforcement can not afford to cut back their duties.
With over 47 years of experience in law enforcement, security innovations, and organizational change in the United States and worldwide, Terry Gainer examines the history of the relationship between law enforcement and private security firms, and offers insight on why an information and technology sharing partnership benefits these two groups and the public-at-large.
