South Australia Police are currently recruiting for 114 Protective Security Officers.
Once they’ve completed a nine week paid training course, Protective Security Officers will be part of the frontline defence to COVID-19 in this State.
Director Human Services Kim-Sherie Summers said the newly trained officers will undertake medi-hotel compliance duties by staffing security desks and controlling access to quarantine facilities.
“Part of the role will be operating security equipment, monitoring CCTV, doing foot patrols around the perimeter, as well as monitoring and reporting on the movement of guests to and from the quarantine facility,” Ms Summers said.
“South Australia’s medi-hotels provide an important service to Australians returning home from overseas, they are able to undertake their 14-day quarantine in a safe environment for themselves and ultimately the local community.”
Protective Security Officers will also assist in any border control duties should they be required.
Successful applicants for these positions will be required to perform duties where it is expected they will come into contact with people who may have been exposed to, or have been diagnosed with, COVID-19.
However they will be trained to safely cope in these situations, be provided extensive safety equipment and need to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
“We encourage anyone with strong communication skills, a community-minded approach and a cool head in stressful situations to apply now.
“You’ll receive paid training, a uniform is provided, pre-planned shift work meaning a flexible lifestyle and you’ll work in a strong team environment.”
