dc.description.abstractThis chapter addresses the issue of the best way to regulate security in terms of preventing misconduct and ensuring competency. ln doing this, the chapter takes into account the interests - sometimes divergent, sometimes convergent - of different groups with a stake in the operations of the industry: the owners of security firms, security managers, security staff, security clients, and the genera! public. The chapter reviews a number of general accountability mechanisms that apply to the industry, including criminal and civil law, and commercial and other laws, and self-regulation. The limits of these mechanisms are outlined. They underscore the need for an industry-specific government licensing system. A model system is then advocated, based on the concept of 'smart regulation' - which entails using research evidence to find the most effective and efficient combination of regulatory mechanisms.en_US
