The most successful people in the field of security are those with military and law enforcement backgrounds. Due to years of experience, formal education and related positions they must have held in the past, law enforcement and military professionals stand a better chance of transiting smoothly. However, law enforcement professionals are trained to prevent crimes, and not necessarily loss; hence their experiences are channeled more towards preventing an individual from committing a crime than protecting lives and properties. In crime prevention, the goal is to apprehend and prosecute offenders; therefore, for one to transit successfully, one must be willing to shift focus from one’s training and focus on achieving the goals of the security profession. Your valid national security clearance gives you a higher opportunity to get employment in private security firms. Actually, some firms are always on the lookout to hire profession security operatives who have a valid national security clearance.
