Also speaking at the gathering is special guest Paul Johnson, Chief of the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services for the State of California. He will speak on the latest issues, regulations and potential legislation impacting contract security firms operating in California, which is a good indicator of emerging issues for private security firms nationwide.
Established in 1994, the Colonel Edgar B. Watson Award is given in recognition of contributions to the private security industry as a whole. It is awarded to individuals who have shown superior leadership and a commitment to higher industry standards, a history of advocacy, and/or someone who has increased positive awareness of the profession or shown great valor in their duties as a security representative.
