    Hospitality Security: Procedures, Policies, and Training provides readers with a comprehensive guide to ensuring the safety and well-being of visitors and guests of hospitality establishments. The book demonstrates how those involved in providing hospitality security can not only keep guests safe, but also offer superior customer service.

    The book begins with an overview of the hospitality security department, identifying key roles within the operation, the goals of a security team, and emphasizing the necessity of establishing and maintaining an operations center. Later chapters discuss the need for security standards in operational procedures, policies, and training; emergency procedures and response plans; and the critical components of an effective fire command center. Readers learn vital information regarding best practices, investigations, ethical practices, and legal considerations. The closing chapter underscores the importance of strategic staff selection and quality training.

    A timely and contemporary guide, Hospitality Security is an ideal resource for students of security, as well as practicing security professionals.
