These comments apply to the career group Managers in Protective Service.
The majority of job openings will result from retirements. Given that workers in this occupation are generally older than those in other occupations, the retirement rate in this occupation is above the occupational average. Expansion demand in this occupation will be weak over the 2011-2020 period. This anticipated employment stagnation will follow a period of strong and sustained growth observed since the mid-1990s. In terms of supply, given that many years of experience in protective services are generally required to obtain a senior management position, it is not surprising that the vast majority of job seekers will come from other occupations (mobility).
