Every day, security officers put themselves in harm’s way to protect the public from danger. Yet few people ever recognise the sacrifices they make. International Security Officers' Day, which takes place on the 24th of July every year, is an opportunity to recognise and thank those people who work behind the scenes to keep us safe.
A global security industry initiative, International Security Officers' Day is now celebrated in a wide variety of counties across the world including Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, China, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Macau, India, Ireland, Italy, Singapore, Sri Lanka, United Kingdom, USA and Thailand.
The long-term goal is to build enough support around the world to petition the United Nations to formally declare 24th July, each and every year as International Security Officers' Day to recognise the contribution made by the often nameless and unseen thousands of security officers in helping to keep us safe.
Securecorp took the opportunity to say Thank You to our security staff across the country as well as deliver commendations to a few well-deserved recipients. Check out the video here.
