The Victorian Security Union was asked to provide a comment about the dangers of working in Security after an assault on a fellow officer over the weekend in Hoppers Crossing.
The Security Officer was reported to be moving to aid the passengers of a vehicle involved in an accident where the Security Officer was attacked by the group involved.
Violence should never be tolerated at any level, regardless of the industry someone works in.
When we go to work, we acknowledge that our job comes with risks while protecting something or someone else.
It is never acceptable.
It’s also sad that at times, violence comes even when we are going to the aid of others. The officer involved was a good Samaritan, so many in Security are.
