Scottish Council Elections in Safe Hands
5th May 2012
The recent Scottish Council Elections saw Specialized Security take on the assignments of securing the counting halls for both Falkirk and Clackmannanshire Councils.
Both of these councils were hung, like most other councils throughout the country. In Falkirk Labour took 14 seats, SNP 13, Conservative 2 and Others 3. In Clackmannanshire Labour took 8 seats, SNP 8, Conservative 1 and Others 1.
On behalf of the Returning Officer's the SIA Licenced Security Guards on duty were assigned to secure ballot boxes prior to delivery to polling stations, receive them back at the counting hall and ensure that only officials and staff were allowed into the count.
Tom Clements, Specialized Director commented, “We are fortunate to work with these councils throughout the year and delighted that we could further assist them at this important night in our country’s democratic calendar.”.
