Reacting to the news that a company behind the U.S. detention centre Guantanamo Bay is bidding for a police contract in the UK, Shadow policing minister David Hanson said:
The public don't want to see core policing provided for profit by big companies.
The Government is pushing the police too far into contracting out core public policing and they should rule out private contracts for these roles.
The use of private companies must never be allowed to endanger public confidence in policing.
These partnerships can be very effective and, of course, police forces should pursue efficiencies.
But they mustn't cross the line which would put public trust or the principles of impartial British policing at risk.
