On most ships you have security guards which as paul pointed out are usually gurkhas or indians, the security officers and deputies are more likely to be people with your background or perhaps not quite as qualified but similar (it varies) however the issue really is that say you have a company that has 20 ships in their fleet, thats 2 officers per ship, so 40 positions in the whole company. The turnover is going to be low as the security officers position benefits are pretty good.
Regsiter your details with as many agencies as you can and if you havent done it already go and do the ship security officer course MCA (maritime approved course)

You might also want to consider yacht work, if you have the above qualification and your background you could be in demand.....yachts are whole different ballgame
