The pre- and post- apartheid governments have been engaging with the private security industry through the creation and enforcement of legislation to regulate the industry. The new government, in particular, has been actively implementing legislation to further tighten restrictions and update older legislation. Considering these developments it is perhaps necessary to review all the legislative parameters, both old and new, directed at the private security industry. The future role of private security in South Africa may depend on the success of the legislative attempts of the government and could be a preparation for a formal partnership with the public police.
