The Police and Firefighting Services industry includes public order, safety and emergency services provided by police and firefighting organisations. The police force is unique in its characteristics and structure, given that it provides a general service of protection to the entire community. Each state and territory is predominantly responsible for the operation of its own police service. The Federal Government is responsible for the Australian Federal Police, which polices national laws and provides community policing services in the Australian Capital Territory.
Operators in this industry provide services to maintain public order and safety, such as policing, as well as services for emergencies, such as fires and road accidents. The industry comprises police services (including federal agencies) and fire brigades (metropolitan and country). It does not include ambulance services, corrective and detention centres, or private investigation and security services.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
