The Working Group on the proposed regulation and licensing of security personnel assisting personnel in enforcing court orders by the Private Security Authority (PSA) submitted its report to me in January, 2019. The Group examined the administrative, legislative, resource, security and other matters necessary to bring the regulation and licensing of security personnel assisting those enforcing court orders within the remit of the Private Security Authority.

I am consulting with the Attorney General in relation to the report and I will make an announcement in relation to this matter in due course.
