Private Security Is Filling The Gaps Left By Overworked and Understaffed Police Departments

Law Enforcement agencies across America have been struggling to recruit new officers and retain the existing staff they have in the wake of a growing anti-police sentiment, administrations that do not support their officers, and the open war on cops resulting in unprecedented Law Enforcement officers being murdered while on the job.

The result is overworked and understaffed law enforcement agencies across America, particularly in states and cities led by politicians soft on crime that also whether openly or subtly support an anti-police sentiment.

Those that can afford it are hiring private security to fill in the gaps which provides unprecedented growth for the industry and opportunity for those security company owners that think outside the box and are able and willing to respond to the need.

The counter point is that the majority of security officers are not trained for some of the roles they are being contracted to fill which in the end, can potentially hurt those individual officers as well as the companies that employ them.
