In Security Experts: Litigation and Beyond, security expert witness Robert A. Gardner, CPP, writes:
Regardless of the focus of your practice, there may be a place for a qualified security expert in your legal tool kit. Consider making these suggestions to your client:
• In employment situations, have a qualified security expert review policies and practices with regard to employee selection and screening, employee honesty, and workplace violence prevention and response.
• If your client is a public figure, celebrity or senior business executive, have a qualified security expert conduct periodic threat assessments and assist in developing a protection plan for the client, the client’s family and their home.
The above list is not exhaustive of the areas in which a qualified security consultant can help you protect you client’s interests but it provides a starting point.
