Businesses told to choose security officers carefully
LOCAL COMPANIES NEED to exercise more care in hiring guards and other security officers.
The vice chairman of the Caribbean Association of Security Professionals, Wendell Cumberbatch, made this call today during a media briefing.
Cumberbatch said that many organisations did not carry out enough vetting of their security officers, to the point that a number of former prisoners were hired for sensitive jobs which they should not have been holding.
He told reporters recruitment of security personnel should be governed by proper selection standards. (TY)
