Gradually the cooperation between public and private security is becoming visible. More than 20 years after the “Tobback Act”, the legislation was updated to tailor the current security climate. The best solution was for private and public security services to join forces.
Many companies, magistracy, municipalities and police, private and public organisations and the industry will notice several consequences, although these are positive ones.
This is why Uitgeverij Politeia is organising a unique workshop on “Private Security”.
What are the possibilities of guaranteeing our security as much as possible, in a society where security is a point of special interest for each of us, regardless of our responsibility?
Will all be present at this workshop:
- the Minister of the Interior,
- the Superintendent of Police Zone CARMA,
- the Solicitor General of the Court of Appeals of Ghent,
- the Mayors of Bruges and Aalst,
- the CEO of the professional association of surveillance companies (BVBO) and Danny Vandormael, CEO SERIS and author of the book “Wet op Private en Bijzondere Veiligheid, Praktijkgerichte Toepassing”,
“This is a unique opportunity to attend a critical explanation of the new act from so many different angles. Finally, this new act is a major step forward, but the most important question is whether we missed the chance of taking matters a few steps further. In addition, private security is currently strictly regulated, it sets great store by all possible angles regarding training, and our people –just like the public emergency services, are at the service of the population”, states Danny Vandormael.
SERIS invests strongly in knowledge centre
“Today, as a security company, you can no longer see your service as merely commercial. Naturally, private security must remain competitive. But they must especially also invest in knowledge and innovation in order to guarantee the security of our society as discretely and professionally as possible. Us being able to do this together with the government is an opportunity”, concludes Danny Vandormael, who has dedicated his entire career to security.
