Chief Songomena of Emau who is working in Port Vila as a Security Officer for Shefa Province, is appealing to all security officers in the Capital to attend the first meeting of its kind at the Independence Park Grandstand on December 9 at 3 o’clock in the afternoon.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the traditional challenges securiry officers face in the work place and how to improve the security services that they provide for their employers. “My work conditions are above those of my colleagues and I hope that by sharing my experiences with them, they will be able to cross check with their own employment conditions to recognise how to improve their conditions”, Chief Songomena says. .

Chief Songomea says among the topics for discussions are the challenging work conditions,they face in their respective work places. The truth is that security officers contribute bigtime towards the peaceful and positive image of the Capital. “So many times we intercept criminal activities and hand them over to the Police for further investigations but the truth is that the Government only thanks the Police and VMF. but we all are involved in improving security”, Chief Songomena says.

The chief encourages all private security officers to attend the meeting saying they will be expected to register their names to keep their own statistics and elect their Executive Committee as the first step towards an eventual bill to protect the rights of all security officers.
