Guards Expert Witnesses
Guard expert witness candidates typically have backgrounds in law enforcement, public safety, military duties, and/or have worked as a security guard. In addition to expertise, a guards expert witness should feel comfortable explaining evidence to a judge and jury. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a security officer subject matter expert with prior expert testimony experience. The chosen expert may be a member of an industry organization such as the National Association of Security Companies (NASCO), Private Security Professionals of America (PSPA), the Security Industry Association (SIC), the International Association of Professional Security Consultants (IAPSC), or ASIS International.
A security officer’s role is to protect a client (person or premise) from hazards, loss prevention, and crime. Security officers, or guards, are required to go through state mandated training in order to carry weapons like firearms and pepper spray. Litigation support by a guards expert witness could include a security assessment, an expert report, expert opinion, and trial testimony. Attorney clients may also utilize a security guard specialist for pre-litigation consulting work.
