Police use of private security: New report from University company

A new research report from a University of Leicester spin-out company suggests the police service may have a resource in private security that could contribute to savings of up to £1 billion through collaboration and new ways of working.

Interviews with police chiefs suggest that while many feel there is untapped potential in using private security as a resource in this testing climate; others feel that the private security sector lacks credibility and closer collaboration could damage the reputation of the police.
