G4S is a security company formed by the 2004 merger of Denmark's Group 4 Falck and Britain's Securicor.[1]

Revolving door

G4S has several ex-politicians in its employ, such as John Reid. Former Police Commissioner Paul Condon was deputy chair of the board until 2012.

You're nicked!

In September 2017, it was announced that G4S and Serco – the same two companies who were stripped of contracts for tagging prisoners because a Serious Fraud Office investigation revealed they were charging for tagging people who didn’t exist[2] – are going to be trusted with the handcuffs by the Tory government and allowed the power of arrest.[3]
