0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Security Officers deal with violent and aggressive and drunken individuals each day, thus they are vulnerable when carrying out their duties. They have no powers apart from Common Law powers and have no Personal Protective Equipment such as stab vest etc.
Each day we see in media of security officers been attacked,stabbed or even more been killed. We are asking government to grant powers to Security Officers and make Personal Protective Equipment mandatory throught the industry. This way, our security officer colleagues will be safe.i have personaly experienced agressive and threats to be stabbed at retail stores therefor no matter what kind of security you are doing you need to be equipment with PPE as standard to prevent any serious injury.we all have a family to go home to we do not want to be seriously injured when doing a job we enjoy doing.
