Some private security companies, estate police depart-
ments and business entities provide response services to
alarms, emergencies, car thefts, house and building break-
ins and other calls for services. Their officers are at tremen-
dous risk as they respond to such dangerous situations
where they confront criminals who have high-powered
Further, many of these officers are normally first on the
scene as they are front line officers or first responders.
These also include those from Community Comfort Patrol,
Rapid Response Officers, and Task Force.
Other supplementary officers include fire and medical re-
sponders. They are also at risk in such dangerous situations.
All responding officers as well as their supervisors and
managers need to be adequately prepared and trained to
deal with such dangerous situations. Having an appropriate
Incident Command System and its resources are fundamen-
tal. The associated training at all levels must be drilled down
to the fine details. And, critically, hands-on training will pre-
pare officers as they approach dangerous situations daily.
Security, police, prison and defence force officers come
under heavy attack by criminal elements while on and off
duty. While on-duty, they face a number of dangerous sit-
uations including robberies, break-ins, burglaries, commu-
nity protests, carjacking, drug pushing, gang warfare,
drunk and disorderly behaviour, etc. In other words, their
lives are at serious risk as many have lost theirs.
