Kakalik, James S.; Wildhorn, Sorrel
This report is the first in a series of five describing a 16-month study of the nature and extent of the private police industry in the United States, its problems, its present regulation, and how the law impinges on it. Intended for use by the private police industry and by the governmental agencies that regulate it, as well as by the general public, the study evaluates the benefits, costs, and risks to society of current private security and develops preliminary policy and statutory guidelines for improving future operations and regulation. This comprehensive summary draws on information contained in the other reports to develop the overall findings and recommendations of the study and estimates the trends in resource allocation to public and private security. Data are presented in four tables. Documents in the series are announced in this issue as VT 016 623-VT 016 626. (AG)
