Media Advisory: Ontario to regulate the private security industry

    Expert spokesperson available

    TORONTO, Aug. 21 /CNW/ - On Thursday, Ontario will become the latest
province to regulate the private security industry as Bill 159 marks the first
change to Ontario's law on security guards in more than 41 years. The Bill
will see the establishment of professional industry standards and ensure that
all guards, private investigators, nightclub bouncers and corporate in-house
security staff are trained and licensed.

    Who:      Richard Baranowski, Director at G4S Security Services

    What:     Interview availability with Richard Baranowski, who in 1999
              bought the security firm that employed security staff at a mall
              in a Toronto suburb, where an alleged shoplifter died while
              being restrained by guards. Now with G4S Canada, Baranowski can
              discuss how the changes associated with Bill 159 will affect
              the private security industry.

    About:    The Security Services division at G4S Canada is one of the
              nation's leading providers of security services delivering a
