The 2021 ACS Pacesetters Security Officer of Distinction Awards will be broadcast on-line at 12.30 hours on 16th June 2021 and we are delighted to announce that our Guest Speaker is Michelle Russell, acting Chief Executive of the Security Industry Authority (SIA). Michelle joined the SIA in January 2020 as Director of Partnership and Interventions and was appointed to her current role in October 2020.
The Security Officer of Distinction Awards reward and celebrate front-line security staff who have carried out exceptional actions whilst on duty and there are 12 Security Officers who will received an award this year. It is a great opportunity to recognise Officers who have gone ‘above and beyond’ and been recognised by both their employer and the customer.
The event will be hosted by Roy Cooper, Managing Director of Professional Security Magazine, and we have secured six sponsors who will be involved in the presentation. We would like to thank them for their generous support, without which, we would be unable to run this event. They are Centralus PLC, First Response Group Ltd, Orka Works Group, Security & Vetting Solutions Ltd, SSAIB and TrackTik.
The ACS Pacesetters is independent of the SIA and the ACS and promotes those security companies who are SIA approved contractors that currently have a score in the top 15% of all accredited companies. The SIA’s Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) provides a recognised hallmark of quality for all security businesses with that status within the private security industry.
