Observe and Report
Michael Oden, Aug 1, 2007 - 216 pages
From the Guard working the late shift at a salvage yard to the Contract Security officer protecting US troops in the Middle East and all the officers in between, "Observe & Report" gives them all a voice. Author Michael A. Oden has been one of them for over twenty years and in that time he has seen and done it all. These are the words of his fellow co-workers and himself as they work to protect life, limb, and property. For the first time, you will be able to read what they do on the job, from the Loss Prevention Agent chasing thieves down in the street to a regular guard getting chased off his post by a wacko crematory worker. It's all here and then some, in their own words. At times funny, sad, or scary but always real. Welcome to the inner sanctum of the Professional Security officer. It's not as boring as people think and they're not as incompetent as they've been portrayed in movies. These are dedicated men and women and it's time the world acknowledged their presence for the good or bad they do.
