U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY POLICE OFFICERS ASSOCIATION

Since the tragedy of September 11 and the announcement of President George W. Bush on December 22, 2001, to boost spending on domestic U.S. homeland security by at least $15 Billion in his next budget, private security companies must take a much more serious look at the need for upgrading this industry.

Security Officers nationwide must be organized, better trained and committed to a higher standard of providing private security to our nation's corporate offices, Federal and private properties and assets and the general public.

The industry has exploded in recent years for private security. There is an estimated one to two million law enforcement professionals in some 13,000 private security companies today, and some say that there are twice as many private security officers as police officers. The number of security professionals in the industry has grown nearly 20% in the last ten years, and according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, it will increase another 21-35% by 2009 as companies beef up security to allay fears of crime, vandalism, and terrorism.

With homeland security at high alert the of U.S. Department of Homeland Security Officers Association has officially notified the United States Department of labor of our existence as an association to assist in helping security professionals in obtaining national collective bargaining rights with their employer and to act as a strong voice in Washington D.C. in establishing national training standards nationwide.

Our mission is to unite the millions of security professionals nationwide in having a strong voice in Washington D.C.

To assist security police professionals in forming a union to protect their rights and job security.

To assist security police professionals in obtaining affordable benefits for them and their families through collective bargaining.

To bring awareness to the fact that security police professionals are the FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE in a terrorist attack, which means we stand for better training, higher wages, better benefits and less turnover to ensure our safety and the safety of the United States of America.
