woody503

I am a FORMER career criminal, with 18 years experience.I specialized in commercial burglaries of high end merchandice and businesses safes. I want to start a legal security consulting business, To help prevent burglaries to customers. An ideal position for me would allow me to actually try and break into the companies as many ways as possible. I am a creative indavidual who cant resist a challange! I have many years of collage. But at a collage for criminals. Department of Corrections. I guess i would have a masters degree?? Can any one please steer me in the right direction? Do i try and work for the insurance companies that insure the businesses, Or work for a security company...(IF THEY EVEN CONSIDER ME), or some how start my own consulting business? And if i start my own what type of licences and bonds to i need?

Woody - not really the type of consulting that readers of this site have much knowledge of I suspect. But will leave the post here on the off chance someone can provide some meaningful advice on setting up a niche consulting business. Are you US based (judging by the reference to licences & bonds)?

The security companies I have worked with previously tend to employ those from the police and armed forces (or ex-fire for fire prevention and detection systems).

Most (all?) of these organisations are currently accredited by NSI (National Security Inspectorate), although I understand that this organisation will be abolished in favour of self-regulation.

Given the role that security companies undertake, they perform rigorous searches before offering posts to people. They even need to ensure that if you have not got a continuous work history then you were doing something meaningful in that time (and can prove it).

The upshot is that I would not expect them to look favourably on you, although you may come across a more enlightened organisation (for example, many IT security companies employ ex-hackers).

The only advice I have is to approach the security companies directly. I would suggest that you try the smaller ones first, especially those that do not offer man guarding services, as these have a reputation to uphold - many of their clients would not want an ex-offender walking around their offices at night. The smaller guys tend to offer intruder detection, monitoring and prevention systems (CCTV, door access, alarm maintenance etc.), which may be more aligned to your skills.

I quote : 'An ideal position for me would allow me to actually try and break into the companies as many ways as possible'.

From someone who described repeat offences as a 'career'.

I cant be the only one who infers some sense of pride in your prior activities coming through in your post.

Sorry to say, I think you already know the (honest) answer to your query.

woody503 to marsday (#4)

Yes i take pride in any work i do. I'm simply trying to make the best outta my terrible situation. Im no longer involved in new criminal activities, Nor do i wish to stay involved. I have a unusual talent, And ONLY wish to apply it legally. If the current security companies are more than qualified, Than why is it so easy to for criminals to burglarize companies? It takes a criminal to prevent crime. So why not use me to better the community?

Hi Woody,

I am a reality television producer and am working on a show that might be in your wheelhouse. How can I get in touch with you?

Best,

Just a tip - don't talk about "breaking in"... it's called "penetration testing" when you do it for a crust ;)
