Find Security expertise in Jamaica

The past few decades have witnessed a massive expansion of the security industry in Jamaica. As of 2012, according to the Private Security Regulation Authority (PSRA), there were more than 200 registered private security companies (PSCs) in Jamaica. In terms of the number of registered guards, the largest of these include Guardsman Limited with 2,777, Marksman Limited with 2,653 and Ranger Protection and Security Company Limited with 1,456.

Jamaica’s PSCs provide services in a wide range of contexts and to a wide range of clients, including for specific events (public and private), for residential areas, for banks and for airlines. Services on offer include guarding (for people, premises, goods, cash in transit), security systems design and security management consultancy. Some PSCs, such as Hawkeye Electronic Security Limited, supply a range of electronic security services.

The American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS) aims to increase the professional standards of the PSCs of its members. As of 2004, ASIS Jamaica had more than 60 members, comprising security professionals from a range of the island’s PSCs.

The CPP programme is administered by ASIS International. As of 2012, 10,000 professionals worldwide had earned the designation of CPP. According to the ASIS International website, those who achieve the certificate have demonstrated their ‘competency in the areas of security solutions and best-business practices through an intensive qualification and testing program’.
