"Observe and Report" in Stores Now

Security Specialist Tells All

For most of us, security is an area we know little about—yet one that impacts us all. Thanks to years of Hollywood stereotyping, security officers have been painted as uneducated slackers, incapable of obtaining a real job. The truth of the matter is that most of these disrespected “slackers” know more about security than your average police officer. Unless you work as a Security Officer, Detective, or in a law enforcement capacity, you might be shocked to learn the true challenges these underestimated professionals encounter on a daily basis.

“Through their words, you’ll hear about the drama, excitement, humor, horror, and, boredom, of working as a security officer.”

Decades of Security Observations

Michael Oden has seen it all. His more than twenty years of security observations, including Security Police training, Loss Prevention Detection, and security work have earned him the recognition he currently enjoys as an International Security Specialist. As a result of his overseas travels and extensive first-hand experience with law enforcement and security issues, Michael has acquired a unique perspective on what most of will never know—until now!

Observe and Report, the two words that all security officers learn the first day of training, is a comprehensive collection of real-life security stories that gives you a snapshot of reality as seen from the other side of the badge.

We need to look inside the lives of the men and women who work these amazing jobs and hear in their own words what it’s like to do what they do, so that the next time you see a security officer, as you walk to your car in the middle of the night, you just may decide to say, “Thank you.”

Security is Not Created Equal

Observe and Report tells it like it is. From shopping centers in the U.S. to military bases in Kuwait, professionally trained security officers are encountering the most unexpected situations and making pinch-hitting decisions. Go behind the scenes and get a bird’s eye view of all types of security, including:

Security Police – The Uniform Code of Military Justice
Security Guards – “Rent-a-Cop” vs. Armed Guard
Loss Prevention – The Hidden Side of Security
Hotel Security – Safety Away From Home
Contract Security – Bridging the Military Security Gap
Security Consultants – Alarming News About Alarm Companies

Security is more than just guarding. From weapons training to report writing, computer skills, interrogation, CCTV (Closed Circuit TV), and much more, the days your father spent as a night watchman, pacing back and forth to no end, are history. Michael Oden sheds light on the true side of security with Observe and Report.
