Specialist Highlight-Call-Sign OutKast

Dwayne Johnson

Every now and again I want to feature one of my BPI Security Specialists to feature.  Today’s highlight is call-sign “Outkast”.  I met Outkast back in 1996 through our Fraternity affiliation.  It wasn’t until a year later that he called me and told me that he was in the business and wanted to talk to …

Let’s compare

We refer to specialists that are not full-time employees for a security company as well as those specialists that want to get in the industry on their own as a “Lone wolf”.  They aren’t necessarily attached to a pack of specialists yet they are trying to make it on their own.  What I have found …

On November 30, 2011 President Obama was in Scarnton, PA where he was joyously greeted by supporters.  As …

The EP Go Bag

The term itself is almost self explanatory.  Many specialists have one and each of their Go Bags differ from on specialists to another.  The whole premise of a go bag can differ from person to person depending on what they feel is important to grab and GO at a moments notice.  From and EP perspective …

The misconception of a company and a regsitered company

There are countless individuals that have catchy names for themselves and their so-called security companies.  I wanted to address a subject that I put on the BPI Security YouTube channel yesterday.  There is a huge misunderstanding about having a company name.  I receive resumes and bios all the time from people with names like “Executive …

Handling the wave-off

Let’s face it, there are times when a principal wants some private time, feels you need some time off or just plain needs some time away from you in their personal space.  This normally happens on longterm details when they just flat out get tired of seeing the back of your head in their car …
