Minister: Private guards can help govt agencies

New Delhi, November 16

Exhorting private security agencies to adopt modern technologies to expand operations, Union Minister VK Singh on Saturday said private security guards can help government agencies in affairs like traffic management, pollution monitoring and crowd management through use of drones and CCTV operations.

Minister of State for Road, Transport and Highways, Singh was addressing “Security Leadership Summit” organised by the Central Association of Private Security Industry (CAPSI) here.

“Today governments do not have enough resources and manpower to meet daily requirements of the general public. Here private security agencies can play a major role, but they need to train their personnel in modern and upcoming technologies to gain trust of government agencies who can delegate them routine works like traffic management, pollution monitoring, crowd management and cyber security,” Singh was quoted as saying in a statement issued by CAPSI here. — PTI
