Reflections of a Security Professional on the Walmart Shootings


A writer for Security Magazine (a law enforcement and private security professional) appraises the August 3rd shootings at a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas, to suggest what went wrong.

“There is no evidence,” he writes, “that there was an off-duty law enforcement officer or armed, professional security officer on duty at Walmart. There should have been on-site, an expertly-trained, well-paid and professionally-certified security officer who possesses law enforcement level training. Had this one security measure alone have been in place, there is a good chance this shooting would have been prevented.”

This isn’t second-guessing so much as reflections by a trained security professional. His appraisal is well worth considering by others with security responsibilities.
