Everyday, 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.
This date was chosen specifically to represent the 24/7 nature of security work.
On this day, we want to honour all Security Officers who put themselves in sometimes dangerous or unpredictable situations to make our community safe, and particularly the outstanding Security Officers who protect Wise Group’s valued clients, their assets, and staff.
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 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.
So help us say thank you and show your appreciation by supporting International Security Officers' Day by saying thank you and using #thankyousecurityofficers on social media.
