Find Security expertise in Australia
According to reports from Parliament, there are nearly double the number of private security officers in Australia than police. In 2008, security costs in Australia totaled AUS$ 2.9 billion. Private security personnel in the country can be classified as any of the following groups: private investigators, security consultants, locksmiths, insurance investigators, debt collectors, court bailiffs or sheriffs and armored car escorts. The Council of Australian Governments has taken steps to ensure levels of licensing for security personnel on duty, providing licensing for general guarding, guarding with a dog, crowd control, venue control, centre monitoring, guarding with a firearm, body guarding and training. The five leading companies in the sector are Chubb, Linfox, ISS, Tyco and Signature.
