Private security in the Commonwealth

With public policing services ever under pressure and resources stretched in many Commonwealth countries, the provision of security by private companies has always been inevitable. The private security industry is valuable in protecting property and ensuring personal security in all sectors of the economy, the public sector and households. The need for such services is self-evident such that in many Commonwealth countries private security personnel outnumber public policing officials.

Essential services provided by the private security companies in many Commonwealth countries include transportation of valuable goods and commodities such as cash and gold; personal security services; rapid response to alarm systems; security guard services for businesses, households, public events, courts, ports and embassies; and the sale of surveillance technologies particularly closed circuit television, alarm systems and safety gear.
