Serco Group plc is a provider of public services with head quarters based at Hook in Hampshire and operates in six sectors of public service provision: Health, Transport, Justice, Immigration, Defence, and Citizens Services.

Serco is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index and operates in Continental Europe, the Middle East, the Asia Pacific region and North America, but the majority of its turnover comes from the UK.[1]

Power of arrest

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]
