  • "Police by Another Name: Demand for private security is booming in Minneapolis."

    "The number of licenses approved for new private providers rose from 14 in 2019 to 27 in 2021, according to data from Minnesota’s Board of Private Detective and Protective Agent Services. Demand is exploding as businesses increasingly opt for private guards over off-duty cops."

    It is a shame that other factors are keeping this industry stagnant (in terms of pay and training), at a time when we truly are needed. Businesses have figured out that with 3 hour response times from the police, "catch and release" arrest policies and rising insurance rates, you better hire people to prevent crimes, or deal with it in real time to prevent further problems.

    Now that Illinois is implementing no cash bail, I bet a lot of new security companies will spring up there, especially in Chicago...
