As headlines scream vigilance in the wake of recent attacks in Paris, it’s timely that I re-visit my security narrative.
My role in this occupation combines being a professional with advocacy. My initial experience as a uniformed security officer evolved into stints as a plainclothes bounty hunter, store detective, bouncer, and, ultimately, urban safety consultant. This experience focuses on specific locations and liaison with police, undergirds advocacy where I write, do YouTube commentary and media interviews, on local and national outlets like CNN and Al Jazeera America.
As an advocate, I also promote select people and principles; chiefly, awareness, self defense, citizens on patrol and police privatization-which rarely witness input from inner city stakeholders. It birthed my primary creations: respect representatives (“respect reps”) for urban populations to mediate themselves and CARE, creating awareness and responsibility everywhere, enlisting employees to stop unintentionally enabling workplace crime.
This is my security narrative, a concept focusing professional background, consulting and advocacy on behalf of the ultimate “client” society, in all its phases.
