Privatisation of Policing?

Post by powdermonkey » Sat Feb 11, 2017 12:27 pm

On a recent job dealing with a shoplifter, the security guard told me that the head of his company's (international with around 200 stores in the UK) security, who is an ex-Met officer, is applying for the power to issue community resolutions.
I've not been able to find anything on the internet but, if true, this surely would be privatisation of policing. What next?
I have seen the truth and it makes no sense.
