New Mexico's private security watchdog.
Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) August 7, 2009
Robb Hamic was featured in the July 2009 Security Management article "New Mexico's private security watchdog." Security management is published by ASIS, the world's largest security association. Mr. Hamic has received a lot of media attention for the blog that he publishes: The New Mexico Security Blog. The blog exposes many of New Mexico's security and investigation industry problems and illegally operating companies. Mr. Hamic started the blog two years ago after he became frustrated with the lack of enforcement by state agencies and unanswered complaints to the state. The response by individuals, media, and the government has been strong.
Robb Hamic has been licensed in the security and investigation industry for almost ten years ago after receiving experience in the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department as a Deputy and Detective. He started his own firm and he was amazed that many companies and guards provided security services, sometimes wearing a gun, unlicensed and illegally. He made many complaints with New Mexico's Regulation and Licensing Division that went completely unanswered. He was frustrated that many guards were working without any background checks and he found many examples of felons carrying guns while on duty 'protecting' the people of Albuquerque. He found many instances of gross negligence by the state but still nobody took any notice. The blog has exposed many crimes and has pictures of guards smoking marijuana on duty, guards getting arrested, guards dealing drugs and other serious violations.
The article comes at the end of a series of reports and reports that highlighted the problem. The article sites "the head of RLD telling the Santa Fe Reporter that Hamic might be right about the epidemic of unlicensed security guards. RLD spokesperson said that "his feedback has been extremely helpful in few cases." State Legislator Bill Rehm thinks that Hamic's blog maybe helpful in highlighting the overall cause. He says, "if its something we need to fix, I think that it is important to draw attention to it."

He has kept diligent records on companies who operate illegally and he also advocates for victims of negligent security at commercial locations. "Business owners are responsible for protecting people who come to their property. Albuquerque is a violent place and business owners, property managers and others must evaluate the risks associated with attracting people to businesses. Risk assessments and security procedures must be in place to protect people and their property.
