You are a client with not much experience of the contract manned guarding world. Disturbingly – although almost all of which is hearsay – the reports which you have heard about the industry have often been far from complimentary. Then there was that business of the Olympics – and although every time you visited the Games, the G4S officers looked very smart and were most helpful, you could not ignore the outcry against the company for failing to meet their personnel targets. You even went to the extent of trying to find out more about manned security by listening in to the Home Affairs Select Committee hearing against G4S, but came away feeling that whilst the G4S Directors handled themselves with dignity, members of the Committee appeared both boorish and ill informed. If only you could get some good advice!
