The Company’s 6th Annual National Security Officer Appreciation Week Starts on Sept. 13

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- September 14, 2020Allied Universal, a leading security and facility services company in North America, is proud to recognize Security Professionals during the company’s 6th Annual National Security Officer Appreciation Week starting on September 13 through September 19, 2020. This year, Allied Universal launched a “Thank You” Video Campaign encompassing 18 videos, which highlight employees personally giving thanks and recognition to the company’s more than 200,000 Security Professionals.

Each day, Allied Universal Security Professionals help maintain safe and secure workplaces, schools, shopping malls and communities providing peace of mind. The goal of Allied Universal’s National Security Officer Appreciation Week, which was established in 2015, is to profile and honor all security officers giving them the respect they deserve, encourage the public to thank the next security officer they meet as well as raise awareness of the many career opportunities that exist within the security services industry.

“I am truly honored to celebrate our Security Professionals each and every day as they are our everyday heroes especially during these challenging times,” said Steve Jones, CEO of Allied Universal. “Please take the time to show your appreciation for our hard-working men and women who have answered a call to public service that is demanding and ultimately rewarding.”

On a daily basis, our Security Professionals from dispatcher, lobby ambassador to first responder, keep us safe by averting threats and responding to emergencies. These individuals help to deter crime, assist with evacuations, work closely with law enforcement and are constantly vigilant in their efforts to keep us safe.
