Ten new protective security officers graduated at the Police Academy at Taperoo today.
They will join the SA Police Security Services Branch helping to maintain the security of South Australian Government critical infrastructure and high risk assets.
The Branch also provides a whole-of-government alarm and CCTV monitoring service across the Adelaide CBD and major transport corridors.
Among the 10 were Tim Irrgang who swapped his job as a music teacher for the rigours and rewards of protective security.
“I joined because I wanted to face new challenges, and working with the community appealed to me,” he said.
“I thoroughly enjoyed all facets of training, particularly the team work and close bond established with my colleagues during the comprehensive nine-week training program”.
Also graduating was Latia Van Kaathoven who previously worked in the aged care sector.
“Becoming a PSO is an exciting challenge as I enjoy helping people and want to make a difference in the community,” she said.
“It’s been great learning new skills and knowledge and putting that into practice all facets of the training, but now I can’t wait to begin my new career”.
