Interestingly, the Roman Empire developed the “12 tablets” which is known as the first law book outlining the laws for security and law enforcement. Many years later, security services are regular around the world, especially for public places, businesses and other other organizations or persons which might require the services of a private security company.

Although security officers do differ greatly from police officers, military personnel, and federal agents, as well as other armed personnel, Australia and America have a growing population of security personnel that have experience in military or police work, most often in senior management personnel. Not all security companies are comprised of veterans, but there are many that are.

At the end of the day, securities systems greatly benefit those who choose to employ them.
