Private Security Bill Adding Accountability Receives Royal Assent To Amend Private Security Act 2004.

Private Security Bill Adding Accountability – Victoria’s Private Security and County Court Amendment Bill 2024 has received royal assent to amend the Private Security Act 2004 – the amended act changes licensing and adds accountability.

The Private Security and County Court Amendment Act 2024 will provide a single licensing system for all private security workers and businesses by removing the requirement that some activities require a registration and others a licence.

All activities require a licence under the bill, which will streamline and simplify the application process for private security licences. The new Act also imposes a new requirement for refresher training prior to renewal of licences for some private security activities.

The Private Security and County Court Amendment Act 2024 will allow any person aware of concerns about a holder of a private security licence to make a complaint to Victoria Police, as well as setting out requirements for obtaining consent and providing written notice in relation to sub-contracting arrangements, with attached offences for failure to comply.

The Act will provide for the development of a code of conduct for private security workers, enforceable by disciplinary action, as well as requiring a risk management plan to be prepared by a person or business prior to private security workers starting work.

It will also clarify provisions in relation to the appointment of special counsel in licence suspension hearings at VCAT where protected information is required to be managed.
