Corps Security celebrates Security Officer Appreciation Week with ‘Thank Your Security Officer Day’

As part of Security Officer Appreciation Week, Corps Security hosted an inaugural ‘Thank Your Security Officer Day’ on Thursday 19 September to thank its dedicated band of officers. Working in partnership with a range of clients, the management team at Corps Security thanked officers in person and shared stories across several social media platforms to acknowledge those who go ‘above and beyond’ in delivering an unprecedented level of service.

A US-orchestrated initiative, Security Officer Appreciation Week ran from 15-22 September. It’s an international week of recognition allowing companies the opportunity to acknowledge and thank the important security officers that keep people – and the workplaces and buildings they occupy – safe and secure.

“Our security officers work hard in often difficult conditions and at unsocial hours to keep people safe and our clients’ buildings secure,” said Mike Bullock, CEO of Corps Security. “This is an opportunity for us to recognise their dedication to their work and thank them for their service. In future years, we plan to build on the success of today by increasing the range of activities.”

Here’s what some of Corps Security’s’ clients have said about their security officers:

“I would like to put on record my thanks and personal appreciation for the work you are doing and especially for the support you have given me over the past five months. It’s clear that you have taken a very personal interest in all operational aspects of the scheme and this is to the benefit of the company, the tenants, the owners and myself” Head of a West End Theatre

“Your security officer has proven himself to be an extremely conscientious and professional individual who has the best interests of all around him at the forefront of his thoughts. His work is pivotal to the security of the garrison site and his dedicated contribution and the level of support he provides cannot be underestimated” Manager of a Logistics Unit, Her Majesty’s Armed Forces

“You have some really impressive staff and their friendly support and enthusiasm to assist is a credit to Corps Security. I would not have achieved the many tasks I had in hand were it not for the assistance of your security officers” Exhibition Organiser

“The expertise and advice of your security officers has been instrumental in securing the loan of the world-class and very high-value medal collection that’s now on display. Thank You, too, for providing such a professional and smartly turned-out team to deliver security for the opening ceremony. Their contribution in calmly managing security, control of entry and car parking gave both my team and the local police great confidence” Museum Manager
