The duties of a police officer, also known as a law enforcement officer, focus on protecting people and property. They patrol the areas they are assigned, which sometimes include entire jurisdictions, respond to calls, enforce laws, make arrests, issue citations, and occasionally testify in court cases.
Today state and local law enforcement agencies employed more than 1.1 million people on a full-time basis, including about 765,000 sworn personnel (defined as those with general arrest powers).
In addition to the above the U.S. Department of Labor statistics claims that there are over 1.1 million private security guards in the U.S. today. This number includes special police officers, protective service officers and federal contract guards.
While the private security industry numbers 1.1 million people, very few of these private security professionals are unionized and today there are less than a dozen security police and law enforcement unions in the United States who specialize in and are certifiable by the National Labor Relations Board to represent private security professionals.
