Firearms safety

In some regions it is necessary for G4S security officers to carry firearms as a means of additional protection for themselves and those in their care. Therefore, we have a comprehensive policy on firearms covering a range of issues relating to firearms safety, including their control, procurement, storage and transportation.

Regular firearms maintenance, refresher training and the appropriate screening of employees help to ensure the safety of both employees and the firearms they use. The implementation of this policy is reviewed through a process of compliance audits and review, both by the local businesses and by group internal audit.
