Not around here, it has been the complete opposite. The old totally passive tactics from the 80's and 90's (and beyond) is being abandoned in more and more places and more "civila skyddsvakter" than ever is in service. It's not always a wish but a necessity. This is the natural response to a violent society and also due to the fact that security companies are doing more of the old style police work than ever.Originally Posted by Kaapeli
Most of the security guards have piss poor training and lacks motivation to do their job, these are the people that are always looking for the easiest way out. Securitas wouldn't be doing security in Baghdad, and I don't think they should be doing that kind of thing here either with their current level of professionalism.
Just look at what in England a few days ago.. 50 million pounds lost? Jeez... Good job. Passive security is great but it's only part of the solution.
