Alberta Health's controversial plan to centralize security
By Jennifer Brown
Tony Weeks has always been one to challenge the status quo in health care security, but two years ago he was getting restless and looking for a new project — something that would put him ahead of the pack— something no one else had done. “It’s high risk, but high gain. I’ve made a lot of big statements and sold this to a lot of people."
Bill 22 leaves industry wanting more
By Linda Johnson
Nova Scotia’s new private security licensing law fails to address the industry’s major concerns and will likely repeat the mistakes other provinces made, says a past chair of CSIS for the Atlantic Region.
ACFI helps teach investigators how to become an expert witness
By Linda Johnson
To anyone who thinks investigating white collar crime is just a matter of “going through the books,” the job might seem a little dull. But the members of the Association of Certified Forensic Investigators would probably disagree. Sheree Mann, association president, knows you can never be sure where an investigation will take you.
Cameras could deter workplace incidents
By Elliott Goldstein
Bill 168, “An Act to amend the Occupational Health and Safety Act with respect to violence and harassment in the workplace amends the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) to include definitions of workplace violence and workplace harassment."
So where does CCTV fit in? Well, measures and procedures to control the risks identified could include the installation and operation of CCTV equipment to monitor the workplace and protect workers. Especially where the worker is dealing with the general public.

Coming Up: Canadian Security September/October 2010
Cover story: Condominium security: Much of the success of condo security is relationships — finding the right mix of personalities that work with the property manager, condo board and residents. We talk to three property managers about their experiences and to the G4S Greater Toronto Area condo division about what makes for a successful partnership.
Access control feature: The Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa. The 100-year old stone "castle" which houses many archaeological treasures recently underwent a significant facelift recently including a major security overhaul including access control/intrusion detection/CCTV systems. We look at the details of the project and the work done all while the museum remained operational and open to the public.
Retail focus: Retailers continue to lose billions to employee theft and shoplifting, but an ADT study reveals that last year the total dollar amount lost went down, thanks in part to increased use of networked security tools including video surveillance. We look at what is working for Canadian Retailers and how they are battling what remains the biggest problem — loss due to internal theft.
