The NSW Government has announced a review of personal protective equipment for security officers in the wake of the Westfield Bondi Junction attack which killed 6, including security officer Faraz Tahir, and wounded 8, including security officer Muhammad Taha.
The review will look at the current restrictions that are in place for equipment for security guards, and the resulting training that would be required if there was to be a policy change.

ASIAL looks forward to participating in the review to ensure there is a measured approach that results in meaningful and long-lasting outcomes that strengthen protections for security officers.

ASIAL will keep its members informed on the progress of this review.
