Static guardsProtective security officers
We have base level and empowered officers available to protect government premises, people and assets. Protective security officers are sworn staff officers who have the same powers under the criminal code as a security officer in the private sector.
Senior protective security officers
Senior protective security officers are sworn staff officers who have, in relation to a state building, all the powers and authorities of a police officer, except the power of arrest. In addition, senior protective security officers are empowered to detain any person who has committed any offence before handing them over to a police officer.
Building services coordinators
We provide a high level, 24 hour, seven day a week monitoring service for more than 2,500 electronic security systems across government throughout Queensland. We can monitor security alarms systems, access control, automated alarm monitoring equipment, building management systems, remote video/alarm systems and personal alarm systems. All these systems can report back to the monitoring station byway of standard phone line, GPRS, 3G and IP. In the event of a natural disaster or technical issue we can divert alarm transmission and calls to a backup site.
