Security consortium appointed for 2018 Commonwealth Games
A consortium of four specialist Australian companies has been appointed by the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC) to provide the security workforce for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Comprising of MSS Security, Wilson Security, SecureCorp and SNP, the consortium will deploy more than 4,000 security personnel.
Making the announcing the Queensland Transport and Commonwealth Games Minister, Stirling Hinchliffe said 30% of the security workforce would be recruited from South East Queensland.
Minister Hinchliffe stated “the security workforce for the 2018 Commonwealth Games will be specially trained by GOLDOC and its partners to deliver a high-quality presence for the Games and new, industry recognised skills for hundreds of local workers.
“A significant consideration in planning for GC2018 has been the Games’ legacy; it has been built into new and upgraded venue infrastructure, and now the workforce skills of hundreds of Queenslanders.”
GOLDOC Chairman, Peter Beattie said the safety and security of spectators and athletes would be a priority for GC2018, adding “this is a sporting event, it’s also the largest event Australia will see this decade, and we’re determined everybody will be able to enjoy the Commonwealth Games in a safe and friendly environment.
“GOLDOC is working closely with Queensland’s Department of Education and Training and industry experts to tailor the skills of the GC2018 security workforce to local needs.”
GOLDOC Head of Security, Danny Baade said the security workforce would include both newly trained and experienced personnel.
Baade advised “South East Queensland has delivered many large events in recent years, the G20 Summit is just one example
“We’ll be providing a visible presence for GC2018 which is similar to what you would expect to see at a major Australian airport, while complementing the work of other security agencies.”
Most recruitment and training of security personnel will commence during 2017.
