About IPSA

The International Professional Security Association (IPSA) is a membership body for individuals and companies working in security and associated roles.

The Association was formed over 50 years ago to ensure professionalism in the management of security operations. IPSA as an established and recognised worldwide professional organisation, provides, in accordance with growing demand, a specialised unrivaled service to industry/commerce. There are no geographical boundaries in operation and the highest technical standards are stringently applied in all our dealings. The Association operates within the framework of fourteen regions which includes many overseas countries.

There is a clear understanding which is spelt out in all our literature that the Association has no trade union or political connections or aspirations. IPSA is an independent body controlled and paid for by its members. Membership is available to:

  • Persons wholly employed in the industry
  • Persons who are preparing to come into the industry (i.e. Police Officers, Members of the Armed Forces, students, etc.)
  • Security Guarding Organisations
  • Door Supervisors
  • Businesses engaged in the manufacture or supply of security equipment
  • Consultant Companies
  • Training Companies
  • Organisations who employ their own security staff
  • Plus other types of business. See "About Membership" for more details

IPSA offers membership to those employed in Industrial or Commercial Security and to those companies who supply services or materials used in connection with Industrial or Commercial Security. The Association also provides a number of training courses for Industrial or Commercial Security personnel and management. See 'Training' for more details.
