Human Rights first! Stop the privatisation of policing services in the West Midlands and Surrey

Human Rights first! Stop the privatisation of policing services in the West Midlands and Surrey
  
  

 


Why this is important

In June 2012 West Midlands and Surrey Police Authorities announced the shortlist of Companies bidding for the £1.5bn contract to privatise police services.

The shortlisted companies include corporate giants KBR and G4S who have questionable human and labour rights records from Palestine to Iraq to Guantanamo Bay to the treatment of asylum seekers in the UK.

The police are a public service and police work is central to public safety and order. Privatised services are run for profit – privatising any aspect of policing brings the danger that profits are put before people.

The weakening of public accountability over critical police functions run by private companies presents a clear and future danger for the civil liberties of the citizens of the West Midlands.
