The team at Excell Security is proud to recognise International Security Officers’ Day on Monday 24 July 2023.
This Day is celebrated on 24/7 to recognise the 24/7 nature of security and the work and commitment of security guards across the world.
Here in Australia, International Security Officers’ Day is led by ASIAL (Australian Security Industry Association Limited) and they describe the event as:
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, Suriname and Thailand.
The long term goal is to build enough support around the world to petition to 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.
They don’t do it for the rewards, and they certainly don’t do it for public praise.
July 24 is a great opportunity to say a simple “thank you” to those who work so hard to keep us safe.
