Based on this, Mr. Dunbar has also partner with other entities to mitigate the risk of overcrowding of prison by advocating for other avenues such as private prisons and the community-based correction programs. This however, has enabled him to be a constructive partner with law enforcement officers to ensure that their work is running smoothly. According to James Dunbar the operations director of the virtual security force there have been numerous of individuals in the criminal justice field which in turn has been very useful over the years because the concentration has been on the increasing number of prisoners.

Questions still abound on the necessity and appropriateness of the size and capacity of the current Virtual security force that he operates.
