The Boston Marathon bombing made the threat of terrorism at large public events into an unfortunate reality which requires our society to change the way we look at security. David Boehm, retired NYPD Lieutenant and COO of Security USA, Inc. explains the impact in this CBS 2 News interview.
Shortly after the Sandy Hook School shooting, the Department of Homeland Security released a three miute video discussing what to do in the event that you find yourself in the middle of an "active shooter" situation. The brief video suggests hiding in a place where the shooter is less likely to notice you, but it also suggests arming yourself with whatever is available, like a scissor or other sharp object so if you're forced to come face to face with the attacker, you have the option of trying to defend yourself. CBS News 2 examines the alternatives with the help of Security USA's David Boehm.
In the premiere episode of Security USA Today, David Boehm, Albert Timen and Clark Pena discuss the current state of preparation in regard to counter terrorism.

The training session was attended by twenty livery drivers from the Bronx.
An unfortunate fact of life for New York City livery drivers is that you really have no idea who is getting into your back seat, which means that you can be pulling over to admit a violent criminal. Too many of our taxi drivers re being subjected to robberies and other violent attacks in the course of their work, and they are given little or no training on how to protect themselves and their property.
In this Spanish language interview, Clark Pena, a consultant for Security USA, a security and bodyguard company located in mid-town Manhattan discusses the most important security lesson from the Boston Marathon bombing, which is, "if you see something, say something," or "si usted ve algo extraña , repórtelo." Had the knapsacks containing the explosives been found before they detonated, the entire tragedy could have been avoided.
