Battling crime will take collaboration from both public- and private-security personnel.

And it was with that in mind that one of the leading private-security firms, Guardsman Group, specifically its Guardsman Limited division, hosted a business forum luncheon to discuss just that. The luncheon was held at the group's headquarters on Tuesday afternoon, with representatives from both security sections and representatives of some of the island's bigger private-sector entities showing up.

We have some of the highlights.
