In the UK, the private security industry provides manned, physical and technical systems to help protect people, premises and property. It can also help prevent and detect crimes and any activities that could be considered unauthorized as well as offering expertise in monitoring and responding to safety risks.

It includes an in-depth look at health and safety issues, the concept of duty of care and examines a range of emergency situations that security operatives might be involved with. The course also covers communication skills, including tips for effective radio communication and instructions on how to use the phonetic alphabet.
