For the purposes of this report, the manned security market includes three main sectors, namely manned guarding, cash-in-transit (CIT) and custodial services. The manned guarding sector is the largest of the three, while the CIT and custodial services markets are still relatively small sectors. The following definitions are used in this report:
Manned guarding, which includes uniformed guards and guard patrols, with or without dogs, and either permanently or periodically on site. Also included are guards and plain clothes detectives in retail premises, keyholders and personnel monitoring and responding to alarms. The manned guarding market also includes personnel involved in air traffic security, such as airport guarding, as well as baggage, cargo and mail screening. Diplomatic and anti-terrorist security, involving vehicle escort services, anti-bug sweeping and the detection of explosives, is also included in this sector.
CIT, which primarily involves the transportation of cash and valuables. This sector includes counting and processing of money and the restocking of bank and building society cash dispensers.
Custodial services, which includes the design, construction, management and financing of private prisons, together with prisoner escorting and curfew enforcement via electronic monitoring.
There has been an increasing trend of facilities management companies providing manned security services, while the reverse is also true, with an increasing number of security companies offering facilities management services. However, as such services are often bundled with other services and are provided under one facilities management contract, it is not always possible to analyse the value of the manned security aspect of such contracts. Therefore, the value of such facilities management contracts is not included in this report. Facilities management services are analysed separately in the MBD report, The UK Facilities Management
