Victorian County Court
G4S has provided security at the Victorian County Courts facility since 2002. Security services include 24 hour CCTV monitoring, uniformed front of house security/customer service, access control and scanning, court security and alarm and duress controls/response. All staff hold a Certificate III in Security as a minimum and are trained in first aid and weapons detection, and undergo annual refreshers in both these qualifications.
Weapons detection is a vital service with the screening of over 368,000 visitors and 487,000 bags annually. Each year well over 5,500 suspicious items are seized. G4S staff also perform court room searches each day and liaise with judicial staff regarding any special security requirements pertaining to specific matters being heard. To further protect the Judiciary, we provide access control and vehicle checking in the staff car park.
