The public service sector in Australia is vast, employing almost two million people across the nation according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). While federal and state governments take the lion's share of that workforce, local government is an essential part of our society, one the ABS notes is populated with 186,000 workers.
Without these hard-working individuals, so much of the infrastructure we rely on would be compromised, making life incredibly difficult for residents. Naturally, then, ensuring that local government employees and the facilities they use are protected is an essential concern.
Balancing security with budgets
As essential as the services of local government are, it's an unfortunate reality that many of these organisations are woefully under-funded. Particularly for large organisations such as the Brisbane City Council – which the Australian Local Government Association notes is the largest in Australia, serving a population of 1.2 million – tight budgets mean decision-making is a challenge.
Protecting local government assets and personnel needs to be cost-effective, and that means working with a provider of security officers who are experienced and trained to be effective. Finding a partner with a keen understanding of the needs of local government organisations – and how to meet those needs – is the most valuable consideration, ensuring efficient and tailored service.
