PIABC has been an active participant in ongoing consultations and committees involving Federal and Provincial governments, police and private security services stakeholders. These discussions and committees were formed to help reengineer future public safety and security service delivery models.
The eventual outcomes of this work may result in significant benefits such as enhancing public safety and security services, controlling the associated costs of meeting public safety and security service expectations, and providing business opportunities for the security industry, including private investigation.
