Abstract:

A fundamental premise is that private security service organizations fill a perceived need and provide clear social benefits to their consumers and, to some extent, to the general public. It is generally agreed that if private security services were drastically reduced or eliminated, reported crime, the fear of crime, and the prices of retial merchandise would rise. The study accepts this premise and research focuses on examining alternative incremental or evolutionary policy and statutory guidelines that might improve private security industrys effectiveness and reduce the seriousness and prevalence of its problems, without threatening its financial viability.
