Until now the health community has contributed three protocols for limiting the collateral damage of the active mutating biological threat, namely. chemical testing besides hygiene and social interaction. The health community should now take the step now by mandating the private security industry that manages the protocols on the ground using security protocols for the threat.
The private security industry is larger than many policing or military unit in most countries. The security industry personnel along with technology and equipment screen people before entering sites. The security industry actually manages and facilitates the health protocols on the ground.
It is impossible to chemical test everybody every and many times a day. The Security industry does electronically test every day and many times a day for the temperatures of people because the population pass through a security access point be it at a building or any other shelter under a roof or an open-air site.
Regarding the social interaction: the security practitioners manage the entry control to sites and therefore manages social interactions. They differ from other front-liners because they could easily manage aggressive and violent behavior. We do know that people shout and could spit into the eyes of a person out of contempt. The eyes being just as porous as the mouth could easily be an entry source of a viral transmission. This means that security practitioners handle life impacting or deadly outcomes daily.
Tailing related issues threats
The outcome of the threat is the economic meltdown. When customers avoid going to a site, the site loses money. Subsequently, by using protocols that are related to layering the manpower by skillsets along with people that have characteristics then there will be peace of mind. This method will enhance profit protection and therefore provides a stronger form of financial security of a site.
There is crime related to the threat and the outcome of the threat. By identifying and reducing the crime levels then the profit margins of the site are secured. Consequently, the more people that enter the site the more money is generated.
All the above dictates that the security sector is a vital stakeholder and contributor towards reducing the number of people or business fatalities and will provide a secure pathway for economic recovery.
This is needed because the illegal economy is growing at a phenomenal rate because transnational, locally organized and gang crime is feeding off the desperate.
Each site is different with distinct demands. There are therefore different protocols for distinct fields of interest, for example, there would be unique protocols for a rehabilitation center to a mall to a stadium. This is not a one size fits all kind-of-thing.
Methodologies and Standards
Security success for the Active Mutating Biological Threat
Security success depends on the level of situational awareness of the people on the ground (all are decision-makers) and their reaction speed (Juan Kirsten 2018). When it comes to handling an active biological threat – reaction speed is vital.
Practitioners armed with the first of its kind ‘’Certified for Biological Threat Security (CBTS)’’ is required to site manage, train and assess all sites for the Certificate of Compliance for security covid-19 protocols(COC19).
This sets the respected standard that is required for such a threat because there is technology and equipment that is regarded as illegal in some countries besides being incorrectly installed and used haphazardly
Furthermore, the front-liners must be layered by skillsets to reduce the number of aggressive incidents that could lead to mass infections of the security practitioners besides the population in general. Also, the officers that may have a high probability of infection by interacting with aggressive situations and therefore must be using medical grade masks and their eyes must be protected by face shields or goggles.
Educating the Site Managers, Trainers and Assessors
The education must be the easiest and most effective method because reaction speed is vital. The foundation for situational awareness is well known in the security industry. All ground practitioners are trained in the concept of such. However, we have to expand the concept of situational awareness towards human awareness, equipment awareness and aggressive behaviour awareness besides cultural awareness.
All the practitioners on the ground are decision-makers whereas there should be no fear attached to the making of decisions. Reaction speed is vital when it involves an active mutating biological threat.
The Compliance Procedures considering the laws of the land in the respective location:
Legitimate Technology and Equipment
Installs and users the technology or equipment correctly
Manpower to be equipped and layered by skillsets besides being knowledgeable on security cv19 protocols for their field of responsibility
Protocols based on sound security principles
These CV-19 security protocols are based on intensive research which fuelled the security and operational protocol guide for managing COVID-19 in March 2020. These have been reviewed by Professor Larry Barton and Dr Rommel Manwong (Prof). This was followed by the release of booklets for COVID-19 building security protocols and housing protocols produced by Jean-Pierre Roux (MPhil) prior to starting his Doctoral (joint-PhD) research at the universities of Glasgow and Edinburgh.
AI for Security Criminology-Risk Investigation must also address cv-19 protocol considerations when merging technology, equipment and manpower. From the incident reporting the managers can assess the flare up points and address the issues with layered and appropriate skillsets. This all must be considered because the security industry just like all others are shifting and adapting to the 4th industrial revolution.
This initiative is important because it is impossible to inoculate the entire globe within weeks. In some countries it could take still a good year to begin making impact. The point is – is that this is a mutating beast that can change shape. The security industry must have awareness of comprehending that this is an active biological threat that must be treated with the respect and addressed accordingly by using security covid-19 protocols.
we are inviting all stakeholders to participate as territorial
boundaries are not respected by the virus.
All must work together toward limiting the levels of collateral damage.
We must acknowledge those that have suffered in anyway due to the health or business impacted by these multiple threats and do thank all practitioners, technology and equipment providers along with the educators for their service.
