Social Security hires a permanent office guard

Post by GD on Mon 17 Oct 2011, 6:05 pm


SOCIAL SECURITY has hired a permanent security presence to clamp down on intimidating behaviour by some clients.

The department has contracted Maximum Security following the retirement of its special constable.

A spokesman said SSD carried out a review of security provision within its public areas before deciding that a permanent presence was needed.

‘We’re convinced of the need for a full-time security presence. Regrettably, there have been occasions when callers to the Social Security offices have experienced bad behaviour in the public areas and have found the atmosphere intimidating.’ (from GEP)


......THE BOSS......

It would be nice to know how the price compares to employing two of their own staff permanently, and more productively doing other things as well as solely guard duties, but I guess we will never know. Outsourcing make the books balance artificially I think.

Why should the Police be involved in security at a states department? Other than totally inappropriate there would still be a cost. For a person doubling up as a general assistant and special constable they would not be willing to pay a decent salary, it certainly lends itself to a retiring police officer.
