Private security is essential to ensuring the security and safety of persons and property, as well as intellectual property and sensitive corporate information.

Private Security Industry

A private security company is a business corporation, which provides armed and unarmed security services and expertise to private and public clients.

Private security companies are companies which provide guard and patrol services, such as bodyguard, guard dog, parking security and security guard services. Many of them will even offer advanced special operations services if the client demands it.

Examples of services provided by these companies include the prevention of unauthorized activity or entry, traffic regulation, access control, and fire and theft prevention and detection. These services categorize the protection of personnel and assets. Other security services such as roving patrol, bodyguard, and guard dog services are also included but are a tiny portion of the industry.
