This Thursday (16th September) Corps Security will be celebrating Thank Your Security Officer Day, an annual celebration of front-line security professionals.
Now in its third year, Thank Your Security Officer Day is a chance for Corps and its customers to recognise the amazing work security teams have done keeping people and properties safe over the past challenging year.
The day falls in International Security Officer Appreciation Week, which takes place from 12-18th September 2021.
Over the course of the day the management team at Corps, which is now a certified social enterprise, will take the time to visit as many sites as possible to thank the front-line teams. Corps is encouraging customers to get involved and thank their officers personally. Front-line officers will also be profiled across social media using #thankyoursecurityofficer and on the Corps website so people can find out more about the people behind the uniform.
“Over the past 18 difficult months, security officers have seen their roles change substantially. They helped to close down and manage empty buildings, support skeleton staff where people did remain and they are now welcoming people back into workplaces and support them through the new Covid protocols,” said Paul Lotter, managing director of Corps Security. “The perception of security has transformed from often an invisible and unacknowledged position to playing a central role in the country’s Covid response. We want to use this coming Thursday to thank our hard-working and dedicated officers who have worked throughout these challenging times.”
