$1,000,000
CHARITY CHALLENGE:
SECURITY GUARD “TAP OUT”
To: “The Big Four” Man-Guarding Companies in the US

Let’s have some fun, raise $1,000,000 for charity, and show our security
officers how important they are to us!

I believe the most important person at any of our companies is the security
officer who works the toughest post on the night shift.

I challenge the owners (or CEOs if company is owned by private equity) of the
Big Four man-guarding companies to a “Security Guard Tap Out” for charity.
You pick your toughest guard post anywhere in the US. You and I will put on
your uniforms and stand guard until one of us taps out or walks off the post.
Whoever taps out first has to donate $250,000 to the charity of the winner’s
choice.

This security guard tap out will be fun. It will take us back to our roots and
remind us of the core of our business. It will show our security officers that
they truly are the most important people in our companies. It will show our
customers where our priorities truly lie. And lastly, it will raise $1,000,000 for
charity!

In order to commit up to $1,000,000 of my own money, I had to get


permission from the Boss, my wife Kathy. She asked me why I was doing this.
I told her I want to show our security officers how much they really mean to
me and our industry; plus, we can raise $1,000,000 for charity. Then lastly, I
said, “Can you imagine how much I can learn from working side by side with
4 of the smartest, most successful executives on the planet?! It’s priceless.”
She laughed at me and said, “In the old days, you used to work a lot of guard
posts, but lately, you haven’t. This will be good for you and get you back to
your roots. Go for it; just don’t lose!”

Please accept my challenge for fun and a great cause in person by coming to
our ASIS booth 3903 in Dallas. Or you can call me on my cell at 404-536-1140,
and I will come to your booth!

COVER STORY | BY BRIAN J. ALLEN, CPP

Enterprise security risk management will raise


the profile of security from a task-bound trade to one
of the key business drivers in the C-suite.

SEP 2017 | SECURITY MANAGEMENT

UNTIL RECENTLY,
security has been considered a trade, with
practitioners fighting for proper standing
in the institutions they protect. But the
industry is now at a crossroads.
Before us lie two paths. One is a continu-
ation of the status quo. We may continue to
glide down this road, but it is not a self-de-
termined path. It has been chosen for us
because we have not clearly defined secu-
rity’s role. Given this failure to self-define,
security has traditionally been defined
by others by the task it performs, such as
information security, investigations, phys-
ical security, or executive protection. This
type of definition diminishes the value of
the security function; our role is more than
just our allocated tasks.
The second road is one of self-determina-
tion and opportunity. It offers a chance for
the industry to advance from a trade to a
fully respected profession. On this road, we
can take control of the dialogue, shape the
conversation surrounding our field, and
make our own way forward. As an indus-
try—with ASIS taking the lead—we can
keep advancing until security is considered
a profession.
How can we advance on this second
road? First we need a clear definition of
the role of security in the private sector. We
also need a core base of knowledge that
supports our understanding of that role,
which can be taught—not only to college
students, but to transitioning personnel
coming into our industry and to our hiring
managers. There also needs to be an estab-
lished expectation that practitioners will
ILLUSTRATIONS BY STEVE MCCRACKEN

share this knowledge of security’s role and


the core competencies associated with it.
ASIS International has already started
defining this role through the concept
of enterprise security risk management
(ESRM). With its embrace of ESRM, ASIS
has positioned our industry to travel down
the road of opportunity and self-determi-
nation, with ESRM as the guiding principle
to help chart our course.

protection. For each task, the skill set is
different, just like skill sets differ in any

for each.

Why We Need It
We need ESRM to move beyond the
tasks that security managers and their
teams are assigned. For instance, if you
manage physical security, your team
is the physical security team. If you do
investigations, you are an investigator. If
you manage information security, your
team is the information security team.

interview them for officer positions.


To recruit students, Hartsock and
others in the department used the uni-
versity’s Hire a Hawk program that lists
student employment opportunities and
attended the campus job fair. They also
went to Introduction to Criminology
classes—the first core class in the
Criminology, Law, and Justice major—to
contact students who might be inter-
ested in the program.
“The Intro to Criminology is a prereq-
uisite to the program that every student
coming in has to go through,” Hartsock
explains. “We go to those classes and
do a 10-minute pitch of what we have
to offer and tell them about the depart-
ment. If they wish to apply, they can.”
Within one month, the program had
30 students on staff as security offi-
cers, with a peak in the middle of the
academic year of 75 student officers. The
students completed training conducted
by full-time security staff on mandated
issues, including radio operation, the

and CPR.
The student officers were then trained
for each of their particular assign-
ments. These assignments included
dorm patrol, building checks, the art
museum, athletic events security, the
campus transportation service called
Nite Ride, and the Hawkeye Storage Lot.
“We don’t train everybody on every-
thing; we train on an as-needed basis in
accordance with whatever assignment
they are working,” Hartsock says.
This is because each assignment has
different requirements. For instance,

“And a lot of times our police officers
are scanning our student security offi-
cer channels, and they can start head-
ing that way even before it is actually
dispatched by a dispatcher.”

Campus Impact
When Torres was initially hired, her
friends and fellow students’ first
question was: Do you get to carry a
gun? Student security officers are not
armed, but they are taken seriously by
their peers and this support has helped
them build relationships on campus.
“I’ve been the night dispatcher for
Nite Ride and [my friends] don’t bother
calling the phones because they know
I’m working, so they’ll text me and say,
‘Is there a chance you could send a
Nite Ride my way?’” Torres says. “They
think it’s interesting because they get
to see me in the dorm sometimes and
say, ‘I know the security officer.’”
Building this sense of community
helps give credibility to the campus
police because the student security
officers get to know police officers as
real people, says Police Captain Mark
Bullock.
“Kids, when they talk about these
officers as people rather than as a
profession, it takes away some of those
barriers that may have previously been
there,” he explains.
Another benefit to having the stu-
dent security officers on patrol is that it
can make reporting a sensitive crime,
such as a sexual assault, easier for
students because they are talking to a
peer instead of a police officer.
“If it is a sensitive crime, and if you
have a familiar face or a peer who is
part of an organization like ours, we
would hope that would make report-
ing that crime just a little bit easier,”

response, if necessary. The Student Security Officer Program
Student security officers are all has been viewed as a success so far,
and the university plans to expand it
during the fall of 2017 to hire approx-
imately 125 student officers for the
academic year.
“We’re actually getting ready to do
a very large hiring surge of possibly 40
to 50 more students just to cover one
assignment that’s in the works right
now,” says Hartsock, who declined to
provide more detail about what the
assignment was.
The department itself is also making
a push to have student security officers,
police officers, and security staff be
increasingly more involved with campus
life in their off hours. One initiative is
paying for staff to participate in intra-
mural sports on campus.
“So you’re interacting with the univer-
sity community, humanizing us in the
sense that students get to know us per-
sonally, see a familiar face out of uni-
form as well as in uniform,” Hartsock
explains. “Being more approachable
and being looked at in a way that we’re
really genuinely here to help.”
All of this goes back to Beckner’s
focus of creating a community policing
approach to campus security at the
university.
“If University of Iowa officers can
begin to know students on a personal
level—when it’s not in the context of
punitive action—I believe we’ll be able
to solve more problems proactively,”
he says. “One of my early goals was
to begin to break down the barriers
between students and campus police,
and I think this program is helping us
do that.”

CRISIS LEADERSHIP BEGINS BEFORE EMERGENCIES HAPPEN.


MANAGERS CAN PREPARE BY LEARNING THE BUSINESS, MAKING
ALLIANCES WITH KEY PLAYERS, ASSESSING RISK, AND
IDENTIFYING VULNERABILITIES.

N JULY 12, 2006, fighting between the Israeli

O army and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah


suddenly erupted and started to spread. Hezbollah
fired rockets and anti-tank missiles; Israel responded
with airstrikes and artillery fire, and later launched a ground
invasion of southern Lebanon. The 2006 Lebanon War raged
on for 34 days before the United Nations brokered a ceasefire.
I received word of the fighting shortly before the news
reports hit. I was GE’s divisional global security director at
the time, based at the corporate headquarters building of
General Electric (GE) Healthcare in Waukesha, Wisconsin. I
was responsible for the security and wellbeing of employees
at more than 600 properties around the world, including
three sites in Israel and one in Lebanon. Calls were coming in
from both sides of the battle; many employees were at risk of
losing their lives.
However, as the war entered its tenth day, we had relo-
cated more than 1,000 employees and family members out of
harm’s way, with the help of our corporate executive team
and several strategic partners. This wasn’t an easy
task. We were able to continue basic opera-
tions with minimal losses in Israel, but all
activity in Lebanon came to an abrupt

our team knew where to find hundreds
of new and reusable tapes in dozens
of secure storage locations. It was like
an Easter egg hunt gone wild. Armed
with this knowledge and with very little
effort, the security department was able
to secure dozens of the remaining tapes,
which kept our production teams going

THE LIST

UNIFORM
1. PERCEPTION. Color theory isn’t an exact science,
but we do know a few things about how colors
change the way people are perceived. Color changes
how people see others and how people see them-

COLOR
selves. In American culture, the darker the color, the
more authoritative a person appears. It is unsurpris-
ing then that the colors most often associated with
security and law enforcement uniforms are blue,

gray, and black.

2. EMOTION. Psychological tests have found that in-


dividuals associate colors with specific moods. For
example, people generally associate red with excite-

not for uniforms. According to a study done at the
University of Georgia, the color blue subconsciously
evokes feelings of comfort and security in most peo-
ple, making it a good choice for people in a position
of authority. Tests also have found that individuals
associate the color black with power and strength.
But black can also elicit anger, hostility, dominance,
and aggression. A dark security uniform may sub-
consciously encourage citizens to see officers as ag-
gressive or corrupt. The color gray is an unemotional
color. It is detached, neutral, impartial, and indeci-
sive. From a color psychology perspective, gray is the
color of compromise—being neither black nor white.
Gray conforms. For a security officer uniform, gray is
conventional, dependable, and practical.

3. AUTHORITY. When combined with a uniform, color


can establish a sense of authority. In 1829, the London
Metropolitan Police developed the first standard police
apparel. These first police officers were issued a dark
blue, paramilitary-style uniform. The color blue was
chosen to distinguish the police from the British mil-
itary officers who wore red and white uniforms at the
time. The first official police force in the United States
was established in the city of New York in 1845. Based
on the London police, the New York City Police De-
partment adopted the dark blue uniform in 1853. Cities
such as Boston, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Cleveland, De-
troit, and Philadelphia quickly followed by establish-
ing police departments based on the London model,
including the adoption of the dark blue, paramili-
tary-style uniform. Most police uniforms in the United
States continue to have a paramilitary appearance and
are generally a dark color. However, dark colors are
preferred not only for the emotions they convey, but
because they keep the officer from being easily spotted
by lawbreakers, especially at night.
