Security & Surveillance Industry Comes of Age

FORT WAYNE, Ind., April 15 // PRNewswire // -- The security industry changed irrevocably on September 11, 2001. Attacks on American soil shook the security industry, whether private or public, and for the first time made everyday Americans feel vulnerable and aware of their own personal security issues. Today, the security industry has become pervasive and sometimes invasive, whether it's the government, business or private. Without it, the likes of former Illinois Governor Rob Blagojevich would not have been brought to justice.

"In the past, when you thought about security and surveillance chances were you visualized James Bond with his gadgets or some celebrity being escorted out of her SUV by body-bruising security guards. Well, times have mandated change and the surveillance industry has become a sophisticated and streamlined business," according to Lorinda Church, President & General Counsel, The Spy Place, a nationwide security and franchise company.

"According to the International Franchise Association there are more then 75 industry categories of franchises. Franchises, long the domain of fast food chains, have garnered a new sophistication through The Spy Place business model, which is one of diversity.

"Following its introduction at the ISC West (International Security Conference) held last week in Las Vegas, The Spy Place is geared to become a leading security and surveillance franchise company," adds Ms. Church.

"By allowing its franchisees the opportunity to expand on the foundation of the franchise -- a retail store and security and surveillance installation operation -- into multiple and diverse lines of business such as document destruction, personal security, security guard service, computer and accounting forensics, private investigation, narcotic dog detection service, drug testing services, employment screening services and many other arenas in the security and surveillance industry, The Spy Place offers its franchisees the ability to provide customers with all of the security and surveillance needs under one business model and under one, exciting name, The Spy Place," notes Ms. Church.
