This industry was once quite small, but as businesses and economy began to grow, people realized the need for security. It began on a small scale, but now it is burgeoning industry. Though, security has existed in the form of government agencies, today, there are many private security agencies and other firms that provide security related services. Security industry is growing at a brisk pace, and therefore, we have made a whole section comprising profiles in security.
Private security has become important ever since the private sector has grown a lot. The need for security also increased as there were threats to businesses from criminal elements. Therefore, private security agencies sprung up and filled in this void. They provide well-trained security personnel and businesses felt safer. However, that was not the end; there was a need of security through technology. Therefore, now came up security CCTV (Closed-Circuit Television) cameras, burglar alarms, and other such devices that further increased security. This industry is now worth billions and provides employment to many people.
Many profiles are of state and federal security related jobs. The best example that comes to mind is of the police officer. There are many in police service. Information on all those jobs is given in the security section. There are many duties that they perform, but not much is known about their job other than what we get to see on television.
