Most of the time, security is about protecting people not through action, but high tech surveillance. And while this is a crucial part of what makes the city safe, there is not much to it. It is often viewed as a glamorous job, but in reality it can be quite boring. However, that is not to say that the job is just one big lull and that action is the only way in which to derive pleasure from it. From a day to day basis, it is very rewarding to be part of the entity that protects one of the best cities in the world.
However there comes a time when the job is much more rewarding than just what watching the city of Tokyo offers. There is a time in which one can make a huge difference in how the city is perceived and how the world views the country as a whole. When security is done right, people notice, and that is the most gratifying part of the job.
Safety as a whole
As mentioned previously, safety can only be achieved through a group effort. Local law enforcement working together with security agencies is the best way to achieve a level of safety that allows people to enter and exit the city without fear. What is gratifying is that we get to meet a ton of interesting people interested in the same things as us. Security has always and will always be something that people need to work together in order to achieve.
