Real or perceived threats of terrorist and militant incidents vary over time, and exceptional situations like the pandemic in 2020 could create societal tensions.
The public sector continues to outsource many security services to the private sector in the face of downsizing and cost-cutting programs as well as new and more complex threats that are challenging to handle. The trend of regulating private security providers is continuing, which is helping to increase confidence in these services, both among the general public and among clients in the private and public sectors.
Securitas can offer security solutions and, if needed, extra services on short notice to the public and private sectors. For example, we can provide on-site guarding in public areas to support the work of the police force or for infrastructure such as public transportation. Through our presence, Securitas can contribute to peace of mind in tense situations. We also provide professional risk analysis and risk management services to help tackle complex security issues.
