  1. May i humbly pause a question in regards to the Private Security Industry in terms of their agreed tariffs vs what they pay to their employees. I also need to know whether those clients know exactly what the security guards is being paid. I am asking this question because i am witnessing may many robberies involving security guards. In term of the Private Security Guards Control Act i would also requre to know if these security guards are impowered to shoot?
