Interior Minister Muammer Güler has said that private security guards are not allowed to use pepper spray, in response to a written parliamentary question.
The question was posed by Republican People's Party (CHP) İstanbul deputy Umut Oran, who inquired as to the authorities granted to private security guards working at university campuses. Güler said in his response that the scope of these guards' authority is set out in a law on the provision of private security services. The minister said that among the tools private security guards are permitted to use are walkie-talkies, handcuffs, batons, whistles and flashlights. Güler added that private security guards are trained in line with a curriculum determined by the National Police Department's private security division.
