Public sector retirees from law enforcement, intelligence services and the military (for example) have been joining the security sector for as long as it has existed. However, their impact is debated. Some consider their involvement as an essential positive while others believe they lack the requisite commercial skill sets for modern day security management. What is clear is that security is developing, there is a move towards it being more busines focussed. To what extent has this changed the benefits that public sector retirees bring? Is it true that fundamentally security expertise needed for public and private security is much the same? Would private security personnel moving towards public security face problems? To what extent then does the public sector still provide a good or even the best grounding for a security career? To what extent does security specific training and education need to adjust? This webinar will discuss:
- What benefits do public sector retirees bring to the modern security sector?
- To what extent is ‘security expertise’ built on public sector security experience and to what extent is this entirely different/the same?
- To what extent can training and education build on the good and eradicate any weak aspects of adjusting from public to private?
