"One of its primary functions is to serve as the study guide for the credential Certified in Security Supervision and Management (CSSM), offered by the International Foundation for Protection Officers (IFPO)...This weighty textbook well serves the experienced security professional, the security department director or manager, the security specialist, and the security student." --Security Management, Security Supervision and Management, Fourth Edition "...it's a book to dip into if you are interested in any number of topics, from report writing (again, the superviser plays an important part here) to vehicle searches ('a legally complex activity')." --Professional Security Magazine Online
