Because if you are, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It could work in your favor. You are more alert and aware of security issues surrounding your property. And you have a tendency towards vigilance, something that you may have instilled in your employees. Be that as it may, you do, however, need to be a little careful here. In having the right attitude in regard to your security awareness, you are not necessarily one of those who radically and, sometimes, deliberately take the law into their own hands.
And as a licensed gun owner, a responsible user of the self-defense weapon, perhaps also with a few other fight-back skills in your armory, you may feel as though you are well-equipped to deal with any eventuality until such time that the law enforcement agencies arrive. And you are not necessarily a trigger-happy person either, choosing to act in spite of the fact that your control room desk will be handling all matters once the security alarm has gone off.
Thing is, things could still wrong and this is what gets people into trouble. Instead of criminals being apprehended and the book being thrown at them, while they get off Scott free, it is you, law abiding citizen, who could end up in the slammer. So this is for you then. Put your faith and trust in your security people, both public and private. Work with them and all will be well. Note too that the effectiveness of the control room desk does not necessarily apply to this scenario being sketched for you tonight.
It could apply in equal measure to the way a tall office or residential complex is being managed. It could apply even to the running of a large factory.
