SECURITY - THE SCENARIO
SECURITY is a concept that had emerged on its own when mankind started thinking of leading a trouble-free life. This thinking was a pathfinder for various avenues like-
National and local defence had heralded the formation of Army and Police, and other para-military organizations. When waterways and airspace became vulnerable for enemy intrusions the birth of Airforce and Navy had become inevitable.
When the lifespan of a man is prone to illness and sudden death, to safeguard his dependents from resultant calamities, insurance was founded and funded to keep the dependents SECURED, of course they were secured.
The income or revenue of a man or an organization became unpredictable he saved for the rainy days and put the savings into investments to ensure some revenues to offset his unpredictable loss of revenue or income. By investing his savings he felt 'SECURED'; of course he was secured.
The industrial developments has ushered in new, complex, sometimes even hazardous machinery or technologies which posed some threat to the health or the life of the workers. Safety measures are improvised or even invented and introduced to protect the workers from such dangers. While following the safety measures or employing safety systems the workers feel 'SECURED'; of course, they are secured.
Industrial units, factories, godowns, showrooms, shops offices and residences have valuable material and are inhabited by the most valuable of all - THE PEOPLE. The concept of guarding and protecting the above said places, materials and people from internal and external hostile elements, thus created a new industry called 'SECURITY INDUSTRY', loosely termed as 'Security Bureau' or 'Security Agency' the SECURITY ORGANIZATION, which is a more fitting and apt term for such organizations has emerged as a versatile organization to protect various industrial, commercial and residential premises.
Originally security organizations were promoted and run by retired defence or police officials who were entrepreneurial in nature. Just because the firsts of this kind happened to be somewhat successful. Most of the ex-servicemen and ex-policemen thought it as a viable, profitable re-employment. This has created a scene of mushrooming of number of security organizations, started by the retired officials. Everyone started to join the rat race to make a kill and created a havoc in the marketplace. Complacency, indiscipline, unprofessionalism and loss of credibility have become the assets and achievements of these firms.
The reasons are : --
1.Being a uniformed serviceman he had been trained to respect and obey only to another uniformed man of a higher rank with blind obedience. This being rigid regiment and is suitable only when they are in active service. They lack the suave and civil sense to fit into a commercial establishment. Their strictness has lead into a kind of rudeness to the employing managements and their employees. They cant be blamed for this clumsiness because neither they nor their trainers have ever been exposed to civil, business environments.
2.Uniformed service people were trained to obey orders only. Being in a lower level of hierarchy they were deterred from being initiative, individual thinking, and employing presence of mind.
3.As retired from uniformed service they are eligible for pension. Re-employment in security organization seem to them as a 'secondary income and as they have no need for their career growth they are reluctant to give their full steam into their duties.
The reasons for all these miscarriage of security by the Security Agency Bureau firms are that "THE MARKET PLACE WAS MISINFORMED THAT SECURITY DUTIES ARE NOTHING BUT EASY TASKS PERFORMED BY EX-UNIFORMED PERSONNEL WHO ARE 'EXPERTS ON SECURITY ".
This is the reason that paved way to unprofessional men entering into security industry and has diluted its concentration on security point of view. The clients also took it for granted that whoever has been posted at their place is well versed in security duties.
