The growing number of private security companies policing UK streets is a worrying development, senior police figures say.

The Police Federation of England and Wales said there is "huge concern" over their powers and accountability.

Former Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair has also said there should be no role for the private sector in Britain's law enforcement.

This is alarming and is open to corruption and abuse.

As if the Uk needs more problems.

Police are bad enough for corruption, now we have to put up with more ruthless cronies taking the law and applying it how they see fit.

Why are these groups not called vigilantes?

saw this earlier, alarming indeed...
i dont like the part about the security firms possibly being granted some powers to move people on.
i wonder what training they actually get for this sort of thing?

In the real world you will find that they help out there friends as per usual.

Amazing how the police cannot do there job, and now people think they need these things.

I just wonder is this the same sort of programs as gang stalking, that we have heard about?
