ATLANTA, Georgia (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
Businesses today rely on security officers to protect people and property and to deter many forms of crime. But oftentimes, the risks that are entirely unexpected have the greatest potential to produce catastrophic losses. This proved true recently at the national headquarters of one of America’s oldest veterans assistance and advocacy organizations, where officers from contract security company U.S. Security Associates patrol the premises.
The facility’s executive director extended his thanks to the security officers for “the recent discoveries and prompt reporting of several after-hours maintenance issues.” In a formal letter of appreciation for the officers’ diligence and attention to detail, he states that these issues “could have resulted in substantial property damage if they had gone unnoticed.”
“Losses from water leaks, temperature changes, and other conditions can be significant,” notes Will Riley, vice president of the company’s Midwest business unit. “Security officers are often the first line of defense when it comes to early detection and response to these kinds of developing problems. In security officer training, we emphasize the importance of observing one’s surroundings and reporting concerns about anything out of the ordinary.”
U.S. Security Associates is internationally recognized for security officer training programs that prepare personnel to effectively protect people and property from a variety of risks. The company is a two-time winner of the BEST Awards from the American Society for Training and Development and is ranked among the world’s Top 125 training companies for the eighth consecutive year by Training magazine.

Don Deaton, USA’s local operations manager, comments, “I am very proud of our officers for their part in helping our client avert a potentially costly disaster. I also appreciate how generous our client has been in rewarding the officers for their vigilance. We invest a lot in selecting, training, and developing quality security professionals to protect each site. There is nothing better for employee morale and motivation than a client who goes the extra mile to recognize a job well done.”
