Typing the term "security guard" into Google comes up with surprising results. Unsurprisingly, security guard jobs is number one but under that, is security guard fat. In films, security guards and police officers are depicted as overweight men who love donuts and sit around watching the camera monitors. Films like "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" and "Observe and Report" both feature their main character as an overweight, but loveable, member of law enforcement.
On the one hand, these stereotypes do come from somewhere. On the other, security guards and police officers are involved protecting the safety of society and therefore, need to be able to apprehend bad guys if necessary. Currently, few states have regulations about weight in regards to their law enforcement.
Do you think there should be weight requirements for those in security? Are the stereotypes about overweight law enforcement true?
