Kellogg Brown & Root May Become Part Of Police Forces In Britain

Guantanamo_captives_in_January_2002In areas of the U.K., policing is being partially privatized for the first time ever, and Texas-based former Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg Brown & Root is on the short list of candidate companies, the Guardian reports. Does the public really want the kind of experience KBR brings?

A US Pentagon contractor that was involved in building Guantánamo Bay is on a shortlist of private consortiums bidding for a £1.5bn contract to run key policing services in the West Midlands and Surrey.

The Texas-based Kellogg Brown & Root, which was sold off by the controversial Halliburton corporation in 2007, is part of a consortium which has made it to the final shortlist for a contract that will see large-scale involvement of the private sector in British policing for the first time.

    Well .. that’s great for the police taking bribes and hacking phones for the media. Now they can just call it a “bonus” and “following company policy” !

    Okay, at least now we will know who our real masters are.
    Bow down to the Corporate Police State!
    Held responsible for the bottom line and nothing else.
    To protect and serve the rich.
