The need for a Code of Ethics in private security can be justified on several bases.
To emphasize the need for ethcal conduct and performance on the part of the security guard.
First, people engaged in private security have almost constant exposure to human frailties, the moral weaknesses that result in violations of law and of the rights and property of others.
Private security personnel must, therefore, be cognizant of what constitutes a moral or legal trans- gression; they must appreciate the seriousness of the judgments they are frequently called upon to make; and they must have some guidelines to assist them in making those judgments.
Second, the emergence of private security as a significant element in crime prevention dictates that its role, as well as the conduct and performance expected of its members, be properly defined.
Third, since private security personnel often make decisions which affect the safety and protection of many, a Code of Ethics would clearly assist them in recognizing the scope of their responsibilities and the importance of their roles.
Finally, many private security organizations and associations have established Codes of Ethics which apply to their specific functions, and this is perhaps the most convincing evidence of the need for a Code of Ethics that is applicable to all groups in the private security field (Code of Ethics for Private Security Management and Private Security Employees).
