Security beefed up
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.
