Cooperation between government and private security assets


Full Registered User

I’m looking into possible topics for my bachelors dissertation and among these topics is the relationships and coordination (or lack thereof) between private security resources and government resources. This could be in the form of joint exercises, emergency response agreements or voluntary contributions by the security industry during a crisis, or any other form of agreement or cooperation.

Basically any information regarding the success or failures of such interactions as well as any assessments regarding the viability of such relationships and similar is of value. If anyone on here has any information on these topics I would very much appreciate it if you could share it.

Any links you could provide would also be immensely useful.

While I’m primarily interested in articles and sources that can be cited in an academic article I’m also very interested in your personal opinions on the matter as well as any relevant information on the topic, so please don’t be shy about sharing!
