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 countries across the world including here in Australia, along with Bangladesh, Canada, China, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Macau, India, Ireland, Italy, Singapore, Sri Lanka, United Kingdom, USA and Thailand.
So why this Sunday July 24th? This date was chosen to represent the 24/7 nature of the work undertaken by security officers.
You can show your appreciation by supporting International Security Officers’ Day – it could be as simple as saying” thank you” to a security officer and recognising their work, or show your support on socials with #thankyousecurityofficers.
