This report describes the growth and changes in the private security industry between 1970 and 1990, discusses emerging and continuing issues and trends in private security and its relationships with public law enforcement, and recommends measure and research to improve cooperation between private security and law enforcement. Data came from a review of previous research, individual and focus group interviews, and an analysis of market data. Results indicated that the increased use of locks, security lighting, and other private and public security measures reflect a growing fear of crime, even while statistics show stable or declining crime rates. In addition, the frequency and cost of business crime are increasing. Additional crime problems include breaches of business ethics, drug abuse, computer crime, and terrorism. The primary responsibility for protective measures has also been shifting from public law enforcement to private security, indicating the need for greater cooperation between the public and private sectors.
