To all the Security personnel out there, The other day I was made aware of a tactic used by juvieniles that are up to no good. One kid willset the bait by causing a disturbance and when you as a security officer go to investigate and try to nuetralize the situation the other juvies in the group will come up on your blind side and jump you. If you have access to a partner use him/her, if not then look around at the surrounding crowd. If you are already aware of this the take it as a reminder if this is new info then please take this into account. Stay safe out there.

Key point is always be aware of your surroundings and whats going on.  No matter what element you are in law enforcement never never get complacent.  Stay on your toes.

Teenagers have been doing this for years.. I have a friend that was almost attacked like this about 6 years ago.


Thing to remember is to always pay attention and watch your surroundings. This goes for everyone (LEOs and Security)

Being distracted.. ahem.


I Remember (before the onset of me losing my memory, can't find remote etc), having to do Vehicle check points, standing for very long periods. Sometimes when we were supposed to be looking out for 'terrorists' transporting guns to a new location perhaps to do a killing etc, we would have to stop anyone that looked like a terrorist (give me a break).  So the terrorist would distract us by getting 2 or 3 beautiful looking lassies in a car, and then they would drive in the car behind. Hoping that we would pull in the female's car, and we would then signal for the next car (the bad guys), to drive on. Of course I would never fall for something like that........ mmmm..err....


gosh I remember one lass in particular.......

You will never be in trouble for following established procedures, calling out your location and situation should alert your dispatcher to start the nearest unit your way until otherwise advised.  Distractions can pose a threat to you or your partners at anytime....nothing is "routine".


Great danger lies in the notion that we can reason with evil.

Excellent  advice. Many  people  don't  keep    aware  of their  surroundings.

This tactic is an old one but still gets inexperienced SEO.....The one thing I have learned is don't be afraid to call out to someone....For example if you see someone causing a disturbance or whatever and it seem out of the ordinary or when you begain to approach the subject you recieve a bad feeling just stop at a good distance and say "hey you mind coming and talking to me" and allow the subject to approach you instead of the other way around....this will keep you out of those "set traps" and allow you to observe the individuals actions which might show you indicators that "this is not going to be good" or "okay he's relaxed"....Just remember to know your surroundings and be safe out there....
