Fredrick Wiley & Baiwon Carden
Thru out each month we receive several letters from our customers on our officers who go above and beyond their normal duties and our customer expectations and this month we received the following letter:
I just want you to take a moment to thank you for your services here at our property, in additional I wanted to thank you for providing me with two phenomenal guards Fredrick Wiley and Baiwon Carden. Both of these guards go and beyond the call of duty here at our property. Whatever is asked of them they always do it without any questions asked. I’ve had several incidents here when residents were fighting, prior to calling the police they tried to defuse the situation, a previous tenant guest threatened me and before the guy could finish his statement they stopped him in his tracks and informed him that I’m just here doing a job its nothing personal. They are non confrontational , I’ve experienced with other security companies that the armed guards were confrontational Fred and Baiwon are both non confrontational they talk the situations out to prevent confrontation. Whenever someone unknown is on-site before they even get into the office they have informed me of who they are and they’re reason for the visit. If someone looks suspicious one guard stays outside and the other stays in the hallway to assure that I am safe. They are alert constantly on their toes to keep the residents and management safe at all times. Your company could not have chose better candidates to serve us here at our property. Thank you again on behalf of the entire Prudential Management team congratulations to Mr. Wiley and Mr. Carden on being September officers of the month.
