Security staffing is always a business challenge for the security department. Gauging the needs of a campus often becomes a budgeting nightmare due to recurring costs. Building a case for need is as important as the need itself. In many instances, the objective for staffing revolves around the change or addition of responsibility.
It is important to be in front of the budgeting process of new building designs, purchase of new property, and increase of traffic and personnel. Documenting responsibility, service and deliverables will assist in setting the groundwork of the return on investment (ROI) and temper the overall approval process.
