Find Security expertise in Tuvalu

While there may not be a formal private security sector to speak of in Tuvalu in terms of a variety of independent commercial entities working exclusively to provide security services, it is common for civilians to be employed as security guards in the public sector and the private sector, particularly in sectors such as tourism. Regional initiatives such as those by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) help to promote best practice in the non-state security sector. In 2007 the organisation commissioned a training programme for port facility security officers at the port of Funafuti. Private security personnel in Tuvalu do not normally carry firearms. It is estimated that in 2002 there were only 12 civilians including private security personnel in Tuvalu with firearms. Although they are highly discouraged, private security personnel on board ships registered in Tuvalu are permitted to carry firearms, as long as they are fully trained and all on non-firearms alternatives have been considered.
