If a bill is passed that increases the powers of private security guards, the prestige of this profession may increase. This was told to aif.ru by the head of the holding of security structures “Rus”, a member of the Coordinating Council under the National Guard for private security activities Roman Nasonov.
Earlier it became known that a bill was submitted to the State Duma, expanding the powers of private security guards. They officially want to be allowed to engage in rescue work, cynology, patrolling the streets together with the police, etc.
“The requirements for employees of private security companies will increase. The quality of training, as well as selection and training, will also need to be improved. It all rests on the financial burden on the enterprises themselves. I am sure that not all private security companies will cope with this. There is a kind of natural selection. Will the salary and prestige of the profession increase – will depend on the result of the work and the customer! These questions cannot be solved all at once. Well, I think that the prestige of the profession will eventually increase, – Nasonov said.
The law regulating the activities of private security companies was adopted in 1992 and has not been updated much since then. According to the expert, the new norm – this is an attempt to legislate the already established practice.
«Part of the functionality has already been assigned to security companies. For example, large security structures already have their own cynological centers, many security guards have been trained under the fire-technical minimum program, private security companies are involved in the protection of public order on a contractual basis. I think it’s right, but it’s important to prescribe all this at the legislative level, &rdash; emphasized by Roman Nasonov.
