Thank You Security

NATIONAL SECURITY OFFICER APPRECIATION WEEK

Each day, Allied Universal security officers help maintain safe and secure workplaces, schools, shopping malls and communities providing us with peace of mind. To recognize their commitment to our safety, Allied Universal announces the 5th Annual National Security Officer Appreciation Week September 15 – 21, 2019. In celebration of this week, we invite all to submit messages of thanks to the security officers in your area.

Security officers are hard-working, highly trained individuals who are often our country’s first responders. These individuals deter crime, lead evacuations, work closely with local law enforcement and are constantly vigilant in their efforts to keep us safe.

In today’s society, a security presence has become the expectation, thus the great work of security officers across the country can easily be taken for granted. This is why recognizing our security officers is so important. National Security Officer Appreciation Week should be used to:

  • Recognize their contributions

  • Profile the many roles security officers fill

  • Disprove old misconceptions and stereotypes

  • Raise awareness for security career opportunities

Join us in celebrating the fifth annual National Security Officer Appreciation Week. And be sure to follow #SecurityOfficerAppreciationWeek to read messages of thanks that are shared on social media.

About the Week

To honor these heroes, National Security Officer Appreciation Week was established in 2015. Celebrated during the third week in September, this is an opportunity to recognize security officers’ many contributions to our daily lives.

I just wanted to pay a quick compliment to Marvia Robinson at Vaquero HOA. I just met her as I had to check in on the guest side because I have a loaner vehicle. She was so polite, professional, so I wanted to take the time to make sure you knew that.

I would like to recognize an officer at the Avent site named John Kalman. Officer Kalman has been a great deal of help the past few months at his site. He has displayed a team player attitude and provides support to his fellow officers when needed. He is a very dependable and hard working employee overall.

I would like to recognize officer Wendy Williams. Although she is no longer at my site, I expect that she must be doing well at her new Vantana site. At the Converges site she was extremely dependable and a great role model for her fellow officers. When I used to clock out for the day I left confident knowing that officer Williams can take the control needed to keep the site running smoothly, all while completely her daily tasks. I wish her the best for her future ventures with Allied universal.

First of all I want to thank each and every Security officer at P66 Bartlesville Ok. We have a great team that works hard to keep things safe and secure. We recently awarded our local Officer of the year.

Wednesday the 14th of August 2019. Bartlesville Oklahoma Awarded their Local Officer of the year award,
During our Department meeting
This year’s award went to Bartlesville Security Operations Center (BSOC) Specialists Tim Parker.

This award is for those SP’s that go above and beyond in several categories.
Team work, Proactive approach to issues, Can do Attitude, Completion of tasks assigned ETC..
Consideration is also taken from their peers that also have a vote in the process.
They have to explain why they think someone deserves it not just popularity vote.
It was a tight race but Tim’s ability to look outside the box and come up with suggestions to solve problems
was the deciding factor. The others were also commended during the meeting

Tim received a Gift card from Allied Universal as well as a Challenge coin given by Acct. Manager Matt Garrity.

Honorable mention goes to Downtown Rover Steve Pittman for always filling in when and where needed.
Steve never says NO and always helps out.

I'd like to thank the rover that stepped in during the period of my vacation absence.
The client was impressed with the rover's hard work, production and leadership qualities that I was demoted and eventually removed from the site.
Thank you again

For one year Adam Jackson in Sacramento California was exemplary. He went far above the call of duty. He found things no one else saw. He was polite, cheerful, thoughtful, helpful, hard working, and attentive. It is rare to see such a work ethic. He made us feel safe and respected. May Adam Jackson be recognized for his extraordinary efforts.

Security is an often under appreciated industry in which the excellent performance of a security team manifests in the 'uneventful' - a safe and secure facility or workplace. This makes it easy to overlook the important role that they perform! We know that Security professionals train, assess, prepare, patrol, deter and detect in dynamic and challenging environments. We know that Security is there 24 hours a day, seven days a week, while the world is active and while the world is asleep. We know that Security implements and operates advanced security technology. We know that when an emergency occurs, Security are the true first, first responders who bravely head towards the danger to protect and help those under their charge. Thank you AUS for the industry leading Security Officer Appreciation Week and thank you to all Security Professionals for what you do.

Special shout-out to our Director of Security, Carter Livingston, for overseeing the security team and any given situation while maintaining a smile, great spirit, customer service, and provide great leadership for his team.

Special shout-out to each of the officers that play a role in teaming up with me during lease showings and engaging as appropriate with our prospects -- helping our ownership maintain a look and feel of security presence while offering great customer service. Special appreciation for the many special smiles, waves, and Hellos from Officer Pat Sukprung. The never ending smiles/laughter from Officer Rodney Broadnax who always has time to engage in a lively conversation. The high level of professionalism from Officer Greg Owes.

I would just like to express my deepest gratitude to all of my officers at CCA Martinsburg, WV. Due to officer shortages my officers have tirelessly put in constant overtime to keep our site fully staffed. They are a dedicated team who not only support me daily at work but when I was taken from work by ambulance and transported for emergency open heart surgery in Morgantown, WV, they all drove the three hours together to come and visit me in the hospital. Also a special thanks to Jeff Stackhouse who, in my absence kept everything together and showed great leadership while he was there. Again, I can't say enough good things about my amazing team and how they keep going no matter what! Thank you!
