Tales of a security engineer

Book two in the Alarming Stories series

alarming stories II book cover

A series of short stories detailing the highs and lows of a security engineer in the early 1980’s

During my period as a security engineer I witnessed many interesting situations. The following tales give a flavour of what it was like in the industry in the early 1980's. It also provides an insight into many rude, funny, and sometimes downright dangerous situations I encountered during the early years of career. 

The stories that follow were mainly witnessed by myself first-hand, a few were related to me in great detail by the engineers I worked with. Care has been taken to conceal the names of the people I worked with to protect their identity; however, I suspect many will be able to recognise themselves when the read the book. 

I was apprenticed to Chubb between 1976 and 1980, this period is covered in my first book, Alarming Stories, tales of an apprentice intruder alarm engineer. I then qualified as an engineer and had privileged access to customers premises, as part of my role I was installing and repairing intruder alarm and CCTV systems.
