Large scale security survey

A major study of the UK security sector has been announced today. It is supported by the UK’s leading security associations and is being undertaken by researchers at Perpetuity.

Those working in the security sector are being invited to complete an on-line questionnaire, that addresses the state of the security sector and specifically the potential impact of both changes to regulation and the recession.

Three groups are being invited to compete the survey, they are:

1. Directors and Managers of a company providing security goods and/or services

2. Buyers of security goods and/or services (e.g. Security Managers/Directors of corporations and public/voluntary bodies, Facilities Managers and Procurement specialists).

3. Security officers or supervisors of security officers who undertake security guarding duties. This covers static and patrolling duties protecting company assets, Cash and Valuables in Transit work, Close Protection, Door Supervision, Public Space Surveillance (CCTV), Immobilisation, restriction and removal of vehicles and Key Holding.

The survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete. It can be accessed at:

The deadline for responses is the end of January 2012.

Professor Martin Gill, who is head of Perpetuity Research, which is leading this study as part of the ‘Security Research Initiative’ stated:

‘This could be the largest survey of the security sector ever undertaken, and we would encourage individuals to take part. This is a rare opportunity to gain insights into what people are really doing, and what they really think about what is happening in security. The survey is anonymous, no names of individuals or companies are recorded. The findings will be made available free of charge, so do please complete it.’

Questions and queries should be addressed to:
