PRIVATE SECURITY GOVERNANCE PORTAL

Background

Private Security in Tanzania is dates back in 1920s during the Germany Colonial era when we had the “Akida” and “Jumbe” who protected the colonial leaders. Today, Private Security in Tanzania is one of the fastest growing sectors in Tanzania proving by the high need of private security. The expansion of the sector can be traced back in 1980s and 1990s and continue to be one amongst the major sectors which contributed significantly in Tanzania’s economy. Despite of its escalating growth, the sector at present is largely unregulated and professionalism vary considerably.

This has come to attention of our consultants in noting the need to improve this critical sector and implement standard and well formalized approach that can enable the Tanzania Police Force (TPF), Tanzania Security Industry Association (TSIA) and the Guards to be able to make the most of Technology.
