Se­cu­rity beefed up

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

WIL­SON Se­cu­rity was awarded a $1.15 mil­lion con­tract by the City of Bel­mont last week to pro­vide com­mu­nity se­cu­rity watch ser­vices for two years from Septem­ber 1.

A coun­cil re­port said the com­pany was cho­sen after 13 bid­ders sub­mit­ted ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est in May.

“The ten­der re­sponse re­ceived from Wil­son Se­cu­rity demon­strated that they have the ex­pe­ri­ence and ca­pac­ity to de­liver the ser­vices hav­ing un­der­taken sim­i­lar ser­vices for sev­eral other lo­cal gov­ern­ments in Western Aus­tralia,” the re­port said.

It said the com­pany had been pro­vid­ing se­cu­rity ser­vices for the City of Bel­mont for many years. The re­port said the City of Bel­mont was one of the first coun­cils in WA to pro­vide a 24-hour se­cu­rity ser­vice in 1997.

“Coun­cil made this land­mark de­ci­sion as it firmly be­lieved that ev­ery res­i­dent has the right to live in a safe and se­cure com­mu­nity,” it said.

The ten­der was awarded with two one-year ex­ten­sion op­tions at the sole dis­cre­tion of the City.

Wil­son Se­cu­rity will pro­vide a static se­cu­rity of­fi­cer for the Faulkner Civic Precinct and of­fi­cers for three pa­trol ve­hi­cles.
