Cooperation with the government places high demands on the quality of consulting provided by a private security service provider. It is for this reason that KÖTTER Security created the security advisory council in 2000. The goal of this board is to maintain relationships with federal and state government authorities and to build relationships and cooperate with various security organisations (police, army, state offices for the protection of the constitution).
