EP related reading list

I am looking for more knowledge about my field. I recently read "Principle protection; Lessons Learned" by R.E. "Rick" Colliver. I was wondering if anyone on this site could point me towards new books. Especially in the areas of physical security, locks, cameras, security systems, etc.

ASIS has a certification program oriented toward your physical security interests. Might want to check out the reading list there.

Is your field EP or the whole security genre? As far as physical security, have a look at these as they cover the basics.

L.J. Fenelly "Effective Physical Security"
http://www.amazon.com/Effective-Physical-Security-Fourth-Edition/dp/0124158927

Fischer, Halibozek and Green "Intro to Security"
http://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Security-Eighth-Edition-Fischer/dp/0750684321

and for your EP fix
Dale June "Intro to Executive Protection"
http://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Executive-Protection-Dale-June/dp/B000N65W0Y/ref=la_B001JRZN32_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1381851367&sr=1-1

To add to the posts above:

A very comprehensive book: http://cpbook.co.uk/ The author is G2G in my books (no pun intended)

Not a book, but a blog, well worth a read IMHO ;-)

My EP experience is almost nill. I do however offer DeBecker's book to many female clients as well as the women in my family. I am reading it again for the 3rd time.

He has three books out, all decent, much repetition among the three. I would categorize all as good foundational resources.

Good for EP, but good for the principals too (as well as every adult member of the family )

+1 on Gift of Fear, Just 2 Seconds by DeBecker

Also +1 on the publications by ESI (Exec Protection Bible) and EPI (Providing Exec Protection I & II, and).

If you want to get a solid understanding of what makes stalkers, psychopaths and serial killers tick - I strongly recommend the works of Dr. J Reid Meloy.

To the OP

there are a lot of flavors in the security service world - some of these reading lists would be great in one situation and worthless as tits on a bull in others.

When I hire protective services types some backgrounds are a deal breaker in one case and the same individuals would be first in line on a different mission.

right now I'm running a full realm 6 element head of state mission. If someone that ran with blackwater or triple c applied they wouldnt get the job because they are essentially a one trick pony.

If on the other hand i was hiring for my patrol and perimeter defence crew (force pro) they would be a good fit.

so the question is what are you wanting to prep for ?

executive pro? diplo pro? force pro? fashion accessory to a star? simple security escorts / bodyman ??

all have their own skillsets ?
