Security is one of the fastest-growing professional careers worldwide and in Trinidad and Tobago it is no different. A career in the security field provides a multitude of opportunities. These opportunities range from entry-level security officer positions to investigators specializing in specific areas and managers and directors of security at major corporations and organizations around the world. The demand for heightened security is being increased by theft of information, workplace violence, terrorism, and economic crime.
