Private Security Business

Good governance in any society requires the safety and well-being of its citizens, peace and harmony cannot be maintained in isolation by the law enforcement agencies (LEAs) alone. Personal security remains the responsibility of the individual, corporate body, establishment, etc in any country of the world. While private security has given significant support to the LEAs in reducing their workload maintaining law and order, governments all over the world are increasingly turning to it as a cost-effective means. In US, UK Europe, etc govts are increasingly giving policing functions to the private sector, handing over management of jails, investigation of crimes, patrolling of select places, etc.

Protecting the Guards

A decade or so ago a joint venture foreign (JV) security company was using non-armoured vehicles (known as “soft” vehicles) to transport cash alongwith their armoured vans. Cash cannot be transported in quantity except in armoured vehicles, it is against the law but it costs 4-5 times more to operate an armoured vehicle over a soft vehicle. Over a period of several years more than 50 of their guards were killed and many more injured in various incidents when dacoits attacked their non-armoured vehicles and sprayed them with automatic fire. Ultimately when a girl bystander was killed in the crossfire between the company guards and dacoits in a busy street in Lahore, the Lahore High Court (LHC) took serious notice and ordered compensation.
