Security is a necessary measure for many situations, such as retail, sports, or civil environments, as well as any other type of public setting. It is important to retain a security expert witness whose background matches the particular details of each case, as security measures can take on many different forms. A security program may consist of law enforcement, security and alarm systems, surveillance, and private security, among other safety precautions.
Premises security, loss prevention, and crime prevention should each be implemented while adhering to security procedures, as instructed during a necessary period of training for security guards and employees. Safety and security training should be utilized as a means of preventing security negligence and maintaining the proper security guard procedures, as any violation may be grounds for a potential lawsuit. Inadequate security, deliberate indifference, and insufficient event management would also be grounds for a claim made against the events security.
Security expert witnesses must be knowledgeable in several different areas, as crowd control, customer safety, occupant restraints, jail procedures, standards of conduct, police risk management, retail security, loss prevention, surveillance, industrial espionage, and emergency response are all considered part of the field. Military security, national security, and corporate security may also be related to a lawsuit. Any area involving large crowds, including sporting events, shopping centers, hotels, restaurants, parking garages, parking lots, nightclubs, or campuses, may face premises liability issues in relation to security lawsuits.
