Investigating & Security Activities Including Vehicle Tracking in South Africa 2019 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

February 7, 2020 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 7, 2020--

The “Investigating & Security Activities Including Vehicle Tracking in South Africa 2019” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Investigating & Security Activities Including Vehicle Tracking:

The private security sector uses guards and technology to offer protective services to deter, deny, detect or delay the commission of a crime and assist clients to respond effectively to and recover from untoward events. In South Africa private security officers and service providers are required to register with the Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority, which has over 500,000 security officers and approximately 9,000 security companies signed up. The private security sector continues to grow as it provides a service not readily available from South Africa’s poorly-functioning police force. Apart from the basic commercial and residential armed response service, the industry provides services ranging from special event parking and access control to mounted and dog units and asset protection services during strikes, plant closures and natural disasters.

Tech Developments:

Technology is taking on many of the security tasks that used to be assigned to guards, but the number of registered guards is still growing. Technologies that lower costs and increase efficiencies aim to eliminate or at least manage the human element. Security-related technology includes alarm systems using artificial intelligence to analyse behaviour and recognise anomalies and an internet of things systems that synchronise home automation systems and control lights, gates and air conditioning and provide access for parcel deliveries. Others include GPS-enabled tracking devices in security officers’ armbands, portable scanning units and drone guards providing unmanned aerial surveillance.
