Private Security and the Law, Third Edition is a textbook analysis of significant practices in the security industry that relate to law, regulation, licensure and constitutional dilemmas according to case and statutory authority. It is a treatise on the state of the law that governs the security industry and its operatives. The book fills the void that an increasing number of institutions are seeking as they expand their security programs in response to the growing demand for security education. This book delivers up to date information on the legal requirements witnessed by most security firms. It also explores the liability problems common to security operations, including negligence and tortious liability, civil actions commonly litigated, and strategies to avoid troublesome causes of action that effect business efficiency. From another angle, the work examines the constitutional and due process dimensions of private security work and affords the reader a look at how case law applies certain remedies to wronged parties. Recent cases, and the trends sure to follow, are highlighted throughout the text. Finally, the text is filled with checklists, data and other useful information that aids the security practitioner in applying theory to practice. This book will appeal to students in security and criminal justice programs; private security consultants; corporate security managers; and lawyers.
