About CoESS

CoESS brings together 23 national associations in European countries, of which 17 EU Member States.

The active and associated members are national federations covering a wide range of private security services, located in EU and non-EU member states respectively.

The corresponding members are European or International organisations, which pursue similar goals to CoESS in more specific areas of private security.

The sponsors are corporate entities, which make an additional contribution to CoESS, in order to have sufficient resources for CoESS to operate in all the areas where it is needed.
