Private military contractors now come in all forms
from providing muzzle to muzzle security to
providing high tech solutions for communications,
logistical and transportation services and  risk
management assessments.  As far as politicians go,
any talk of banning private military contractors is
just a lot of smoke without the mirrors.  The need
for security related services will only grow in a world
of rising population, technology and threats.

I've provided you with a list of links to private
military contractor websites to give you quick
reference to the services and careers provided by
some of these firms:   
AirScan was founded in 1989 to provide
state-of-the-art airborne surveillance and security

ACADEMI is an elite security services provider.
Private Military
"While the Hessians are commonly referred to
as mercenaries, most were conscripted into
service rather than being paid for their
service." ~ Barry M. Baker
During the 2008 presidential primaries, presidential
candidate Senator Hillary Clinton introduced
legislation to ban the use of private military firms in
Iraq.  Barack Obama retained his standard enigma
status by simply saying that he would not "rule out"
the use of private military firms.

One of the best ways you can prepare yourself for a
police career is to develop an interest in politics, and
– most importantly – listen to what politicians say.  
Now, understand I didn't say believe what politicians
say, I just said listen to what they say.  It's an
excellent exercise in separating fact from fiction
which will become a perpetual exercise you'll
continue during your police career.
Long before nations, in any form, maintained
standing armies, kings and warlords conscripted or
hired people to fight for them.  A quarter of the
British force in the colonies during the American
Revolutionary War were Hessian troops.  While the
Hessians are commonly referred to as mercenaries,
most were conscripted into service rather than
being paid for their service.  The payment for their
services went to the kings who conscripted them
and the commanders who led them.

The dictionary definition of the noun mercenary is,
"a professional soldier serving in a foreign army for
pay."  Aside from the definition being in conflict with
many military related operations over history, the
word mercenary has simply become politically
incorrect in today's politically correct environment.  
While the definition could still apply to some private
military operations today, the activities of today's
modern private military contractors have evolved
well beyond a soldier fighting for pay.
