The attack on a posh Istanbul nightclub during New Year's celebrations has led to questions about the private security of such venues. Security guards at Reina where 39 people were killed by a Daesh-linked gunman were among the victims while a guard who survived admitted he could do nothing but flee as he was unarmed.
The government is now mulling the revision of a draft law for the flourishing private security sector, which had been shelved previously. Though it is unclear whether security guards in entertainment venues will be allowed to carry arms, the draft law discussed at a recent cabinet meeting brings better training for guards. Guards will be trained like career police officers and will be qualified to work in strategic locations after undergoing a strict regime of security training.
The draft law also set out new criteria for guards' qualifications to carry arms and all guards will undergo mandatory background checks before and during their employment. Guards will also be allowed to search suspects and suspected cars.
