In May 2006, Nova Scotia Justice Minister Murray Scott announced the creation of a Minister's Task Force on Safer Streets and Communities. The mandate of the Task Force was to consult with Nova Scotians and prepare a report to the Minister that would: identify best practices and promote programs and actions that are making a positive impact in communities in Nova Scotia; highlight best practices and legislation being used in other areas of the country and abroad, for consideration, and; and identify ways to support communities which are making efforts to address situations that have a negative effect on their neighbourhoods. This report first summarizes what the Task Force heard from Nova Scotians who made written submissions and who attended focus groups and public meetings.

Regulating private security in Nova Scotia : discussion paper by Department of Justice( )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Private Investigators and Private Guards Act was originally enacted in Nova Scotia in 1972 to provide a regulated environment for the growing number of private investigators and private guards in Nova Scotia. However, the current legislation does not reflect the growing role that private security plays in the overall safety and security of the citizens in Nova Scotia or the diversification of the private security industry (including risk management consultants, locksmiths, alarm installers, bouncers, bodyguards and in-house security). Given the need to modernize this legislation, the Department of Justice is seeking public input on how private security in Nova Scotia can be regulated to better reflect the expansion of the industry and the growing need for strengthened accountability measures to enhance the safety and security of the citizens of Nova Scotia. This discussion paper focuses specifically on security occupations which should be covered under the legislation; the appropriate licensing regime fort those occupations; minimum training and testing standards; and accountability requirements.--Includes text from document
