The best step would be to set up an Ombudsman for the Security Industry and stop letting the companies pretty much self regulate via ASIAL for their own self interests. 

How this goes towards helping clean up a corrupt industry will be interesting to see.

Don't get too excited!    You still have to obtain a 1F licence and go through the application process to justify the carriage and possible use of a firearm whilst guarding.

I wouldn't hold your breath waiting.

Looks like the changes to the NSW security laws have been approved.

The Parliament speeches are interesting to read. I think the new subcontracting rules are a good idea.

Interesting read... at least the provisional licencing issue has been addressed by this proposed legislation, I'd like to hear more about those Commissioner approved private citizens performing the role of armed security outside of the restrictions/training imposed on our industry...

What the Telegraph had to say about it:

http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/sydney-news/police-to-regulate-security-in...

Quote:
POLICE will take control of regulating the security guard industry, giving them the power to stamp out "rogue" operators, under tough new laws to be announced by the state government today.

Hand gun owners will also be allowed to guard threatened religious and cultural sites following approval from the Police Commissioner, as part of the changes that will be introduced to parliament.

Police will have powers to covertly audit security guards at premises brought to their attention, as well as conduct high-visibility patrols to ensure guards were complying with regulation. Civilian employees of the police will also be able to investigate compliance.Police Minister Michael Gallacher said it was clear NSW Police should have oversight of the industry.

"After years of community criticism of sectors of the security industry, particularly in relation to crowd control, the government is ending the co-regulatory relationship between the industry and the government because it simply isn't working," Mr Gallacher said. "I've been concerned for many years about the risk of organised criminal groups infiltrating legitimate security businesses, gaining access to firearms and intelligence that would benefit their criminal enterprise."

The government will establish an advisory council for the Security Licensing and Enforcement Directorate that will include members of the state crime command, representatives of SLED, ministry staff and industry representatives.Mr Gallacher said the security industry warranted greater oversight as they should be an arm of the fight against crime.

"The security industry is uniquely positioned to be extra eyes and ears for police, and its members play a vital role in the day to day protection of critical infrastructure and potential targets for terrorism and criminal acts," he said.

Just had a bit of a read of the beginning.   It appears it is legislation to control an illegal organization.   How has it come to this.   Anyway if it is passed into legislation, who is going to police it?   The same mob who failed to police the act in the past.

Interesting how the legislation wants to exclude certain Commonwealth legislation from the act.

It will be interesting to note what ASIAL has to say about it.
