Police and Public Services

The BSIA's Police and Public Services Section has been established for companies that provide support services to the Police and other public sector organisations, which are not traditional security guarding roles and form part of the wider policing family.

The top priority of the Section is to create new standards and training specifically for those types of activities, recognising the need for a different approach from standard security services.

There are a number of ways in which members of the Police and Public Services Section can provide support, thereby freeing up specialists to pursue their core duties. These include: court warrant services, court security/custody assistance, immigration services, lost/found/seized property management, scenes of crime protection, statement taking, street patrols (local authority and resident groups), town centre CCTV schemes, police and public services specific training and warden schemes.

All contract security personnel in this sector are regulated under the Private Security Industry Act 2001 and require a licence, which is essential to public confidence in their ability to do these jobs.
