In the lawsuit against Kent Security Services Inc. over an alleged mace attack in Pembroke Pines, the parties are apparently in disagreement over the proper name of the defendant. Public records indicate that the defendant prefers being referred to as Kent Security of Palm Beach Inc., whereas the plaintiff prefers Kent Security Services Inc.
Either way, this case is clearly of public interest as physical encounters between private security officers and the public have become an increasingly hot topic, similar to physical encounters between law enforcement officers and the public. For the sake of public safety, this is a topic that needs to be discussed to lessen the number of unnecessary injuries or deaths.
Here is the document indicating that there is a dispute over the proper name of the defendant. Regardless of the outcome, it is our hope that such horrific incidents will become less frequent in our society. Given the sensational nature of this alleged attack, all security companies in Florida should familiarize themselves with the case to brainstorm ways to prevent or defuse this type of incident.
