ART Security (ART) remains across all State and National Legislative and Regulatory requirements which govern the Security Industry and are designed to protect public safety. These include Australian Standards, the State Regulator’s Licensing and Registration provisions and the State Police Alarm Procedures and/or Regulations. In most States the Police are the Regulators of the Security Industry. ART is at the forefront of developments within the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) regarding National Harmonisation of the Security Industry and the Victorian Security Industry Advisory Council (VSIAC). ART has representation on many Federal and State committees which protect the interests of both industry and consumers.
The company is also represented on several other National and State Committees advising Government, Police, National Training Authorities, Australian Standards and Industry Associations.
ART is licensed and registered by the Licensing & Regulation Division of Victoria Police (LRD) and is able to supply security services in all States through mutual recognition and the Harmonisation initiative established by Council of Australian Governments (COAG) .
ART’s Australian Security Industry Associated Limited (ASIAL) Grade A1 Monitoring Centre (MC) abides by the Alarm Response Procedures of the individual State Regulators when requesting Police response to alarm events.
ART personnel hold all licences, registrations and qualifications required to operate within the Security Industry and have completed the State Regulators pre-requisite competency based training units as well as undergone a National Police Check and, where required, a Working with Children Check. ART’s personnel are also part of the Company’s ongoing Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programme conducted in recognition of ART’s commitment to the development and application of professional training standards both within the Company and the wider Security Industry. ART was awarded a Victorian Skills Pledge by the Victorian Government in 2009.
