National Professional Security Association

The National Professional Security Association (NPSA) is one of at least five separate national security associations in Nigeria. It was founded in 2002, largely in response to the arrival of Gray Security in the country, an indicator of the globalisation of the private security industry. The NPSA has a visible presence in the nation. It represents the interest of security professionals and encourages the increased professionalisation of the industry. Consequently, it promotes adherence to professional ethics and standards and opposes any actions by security professionals that might damage the professional reputation or practice of colleagues or clients.

The NPSA resolves to deliver professional corporate security to the Nigerian public. They occupy an important position in the security network, forming connections between the police force, with their primary obligation to protect lives and property, and other public and private bodies.
