Neighbours hire their own police force for £3 each a weekThere is always a price to pay for rising crime rates and an over-stretched police force. But rarely is it so clear what that cost is. Residents of an affluent suburb in Southampton have decided to pay £3.15 a week to fund a private security force to patrol the streets. Hundreds of residents who have 'lost faith in the police force' have clubbed together to hire the private team of uniformed officers to protect them from crime in the area.article-1204819-05F9898D000005DC-63_468x617.jpgSecurity firm Atraks says its team will use the powers of citizen arrest as they patrol the leafy streets of Upper Shirley to 'prevent serious crime' and 'neutralise' threats. Eight uniformed officers equipped with handcuffs and stab vests will even escort homeowners to and from the bank or on shopping trips to ensure they are not mugged. So far 337 people have signed up in the neighbourhood while a further 1,700 have said they will join once they see the service in action. The Atraks service - which is being tried out for free - costs £3.15 a week or residents can make an annual, one-off payment of £163.80. Atraks needs 500 people to sign up to the scheme within a three-square-mile area for it to go ahead full time. It is claimed all residents within this area would benefit from the scheme - not just those who had contributed to the cost. Upper Shirley is one of the most affluent parts of Southampton but is close to a number of run-down areas.article-1204819-05F9035D000005DC-403_468x305.jpgOne resident, Paul Graham, said he has agreed to pay for the scheme because he thinks the Atraks officers will prevent crime, rather than just respond to it. The 28-year-old van driver said: 'It's not a lot of money to pay for having peace of mind. If someone is patrolling the streets at night then it's definitely going to stop some crime from taking place. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12...rce-3-week.html

What controls do they have compared with the jakes? Do they have the power to arrest? are they allowed to carry weapons? somehow i doubt it so for their cause it's f*ck*ng useless.

Some people are just incapable of thinking outside the box.It is widely known that though Governments can be corrupt, private organisations whose primary aim is profit, have a tendency to be more corrupt. What if in the future if this scheme is successful and rolled out across the country these firms get pally with the real criminals...
