Indiana December Employee of the Month goes to Steven Pierce. Pictured left to right is Jonathan Addler, Loss Prevention Supervisor, Steven Pierce, Security Site Supervisor, and Douglas Smith. Steven has been extremely instrumental in hiring/training an extra 336 hours for peak season at a retail group in Greencastle, IN. Steve handled the interviews, all new hire paperwork, drug testing, fingerprinting, training and scheduling for the additional two 24-hour posts. Steve’s due diligence with this enormous task was extremely successful and the peak coverage went on without a hitch. With that being said, the following comments from Jonathan Addler, Loss Prevention Supervisor are demonstrative of Steve's hard work and dedication:
"I have known Steve for 3 years and I can say that the way Steve manages now while under the guidance of Prudential Security is an unbelievable improvement from when he worked for the previous security company. Steve has been great support to me during this peak season. I never have to ask Steve twice for anything, he always checks in to see if we have any complaints with his guards or anything we need from him. Steve has given me insight when needed to help us plan door guard coverage, plan training for the door guards, help with our peak parking plan, kept overtime to a minimum even when staff quit unexpectedly or I changed the schedule on him. Steve puts in extra hours to make sure that we are happy and stays late to ensure everything is in order at the truck gate. In fact, twice we have not been able to locate trucks - thanks to contract truck drivers - and twice Steve was the one that was able to find them. Steve keeps his staff up to date on and ensures they are following proper procedures for checking in trucks/trailers. I do not have to worry about what happens at the truck gate because I know Steve has taken care of everything. I just wanted to call this out and let you know how much I appreciate what Steve does for us on a daily basis. He is much deserving of recognition for all his hard work."
Steve, Congratulations on a job well done. We appreciate you and your efforts.
Pictured is Captain Williams, Sgt. Perry, Andrea lee, Principal Willis. Andrea Lee has been named officer of the month for December 2016 at our Chicago office. Officer Lee cares about the security duties she performs at a south Chicago school district that Prudential Secures. She cares deeply not only for the site where she performs her duties, but also cares deeply for her fellow officers. She has repeatedly demonstrated that she is one of the "go to" people for whatever is needed, and is always professional.

Keep up the good work Officer Lee and congratulations on receiving this prestigious award.
Pictured is Spencer Johnson who has been employed with Prudential Security for over 3 years. He has been assigned to a Thrift Store for just over one year. He is pictured with Lynor the thrift store general manager. Lynor contacted Prudential to let us know what we already knew - that Spencer doesn't need to be asked what to do. He sees what's needed and just goes and does it. He's a part of their team and helps out in anyway that he can. This is Spencer's second time being awarded the November 2016 Employee of the Month award. Congratulations Spencer and thank you for everything you do.
Sometimes things seem easy and that isn't by luck or chance. Tim Graves, November 2016 Employee of the Month, is one employee who makes it look easy. Retired from the automotive industry, Mr. Graves has brought his work ethic and professionalism to Prudential Security.
Mr. Graves is responsible for opening and closing his facility 5 days a week and has done so flawlessly. Our client and the employees have told us countless times of his presence and willingness to assist whenever possible.
While retired and juggling family life issues, Mr. Graves has always kept Prudential Security and the customer a top priority. We thank you!
Pictured center is Scott Lauters, our Employee of the Month for October, to the right is our customer Brad Simonsson, and far left is our Security Director Rodney Davis. Scott has a mission-accomplished drive in him that he puts second only to his wife. He has readily accepted open shifts due to officers being out on medical leave or extended training. Recently Scott gave up a regularly scheduled shift in order to allow an officer to be able to continue to work at the mall due to a shift change at the Police Department so his fellow officer could earn a little extra money that day. Scott has also volunteered to come in very early (0500) to cover special opening events at the mall after being at the mall late at night in preparation of the early morning events.
Scott readily accepts events or shifts that no one else will cover due to their personal commitments, but Scott’s dedication to support the mission of the mall is the driving force behind his always being available to work. Scott says beyond his wife, he is committed to supporting the mall at every opportunity, and his readiness to accept unscheduled shifts proves his commitment. On the other hand, though, Scott will wait to accept an open post until he is sure that none of his fellow officers want to accept the shift to ensure everyone is getting the opportunity to earn extra money. It is quite evident that Scott’s police and military background has ingrained in his personality the desire and drive to step up and support the mall’s mission thereby volunteering for open posts whenever possible. Scott is an asset to Prudential Security and we are lucky to have him on our Team! Congratulations Scott on receiving this prestigious award and keep up the good work.
Our Employee of the Month Chicago is Sergeant Linda Robinson. Ms. Robinson as worked in a school district Prudential Secures for over 18 years. Over the years she has consistently demonstrated all of the qualities of a dedicated officer. She has extremely high verbal skills and the ability to calm angry or frustrated students that we are told is unparalleled. It is because of her experience in deescalation that her Captain, Captain Williams, repeatedly requests that she train all new employees. She is also a great multitask-er. Sergeant Robinson never calls off unless there is a REAL emergency, which is rare and she is always willing to assist. Her dedication was recognized five years ago when she was promoted to her current rank and she always fulfills her work assignments as sergeant. She also frequently receives unsolicited praises from staff commending her work performance. Sergeant Robinson is truly a hard working security professional and Prudential Security is proud to have her on our team. Way to go Sarge!!

Anthony has always gone above and beyond what is asked and what is required! That is exactly why he is requested wherever he goes. Thank you for all that you do Anthony, you are very much appreciated!

Officer Fernandez is now working at another Chicago area school and after only several days, has made an impression with her professional conduct. Thank you Mirabella keep up the great work!

It is with great honor that we award Bob King from our Greenville, South Carolina branch as our Security Officer of the Month for July 2016.
On July 18th, 2016, Mr. Bob King got a report that there may be a jumper on top of the Church Street parking garage. Bob went outside with the employee from Shell Point that reported the incident/concern.
Bob saw the man go to the edge of the wall on the fourth level and put one leg over the side, then pull his leg back and walk away. About three minutes later, the man came back and this time he sat on the wall with both legs over the side while looking down to the ground. Again, he pulled legs back over the wall and walked away from the edge. Bob called 911 to report his observation and was told there will be a police officer coming to check it out.
The police officer arrived and found a young man who was having suicidal thoughts and was thinking about jumping. He discovered that he was distraught because his grandfather had passed away the week before. Because of officer Bob King's actions in handling the situation correctly by patiently waiting on the police to arrive, while at the same time communicating with the individual, it prevented this man from jumping and saved him from severe injury or death. Mr. King that you for your courageous efforts and congratulations on earning Prudential Security's Officer of the Month. We appreciate you!

Anthony rarely turns down an assignment and when at work he gives 100% to both Prudential and our client. For these reasons, Anthony has received Employee of the Month award. Anthony in his spare time is also very active in his church and drives the church bus every Sunday to pick up those without transportation to insure they get to service and safely gets them home.

Pictured below is Officer Denise Johnson who is the area supervisor for many of our Ann Arbor area accounts. During her tenure with Prudential, Officer Johnson has several times gone above and beyond her duties covering any post at any time, never complaining and works closely with our customers to insure their property and staff are protected. She has established a good working relationship with her fellow employees on her site and is known for and enjoys cooking in her spare time. Often times, she will cook and bring in food to share with her fellow officers and its not uncommon on a Saturday to see Denise in the office bringing her Manager Rob Robinson food. When asked why she drives 50 plus miles to do this she said "He doesn't eat right and needs to take care of himself."
Denise was just recently promoted to our alarm division in the capacity of security consultant. If the success she enjoyed at Prudential is any indication of her future on the alarm side, we have no doubt that she is a "Superstar" in the making. Denise, thank you for your hard work and dedication and congratulations on receiving the employee of the month award. Good luck at Prudential Alarm.

On February 19, 2016 at about 6 PM, a cleaning lady turned in a wallet that was found in the parking garage to Security Officer Peter Kriz. Security Officer Kriz was working his assigned 3pm to 11pm shift. Upon receiving the wallet, Security Officer Kriz noticed approximately $1200.00 in cash as well as several credit cards and State issued identifications. Without hesitation, Security Officer Kriz began the task of locating the owner. He found a business card in the wallet and placed a phone call to inform the owner he had his wallet safe and secure. Officer Kriz was only able to leave a message at this time. Security Officer Kriz followed his procedures for found properties, logged the wallet into his daily report, and notified his supervisor Mark Davis. Mr. Davis took possession and secured the wallet and it's contents. The following day the owner of the wallet returned Security Officer Kriz's phone call. Officer Kriz informed him that he had secured the wallet with his Supervisor and gave him Mark's number. Upon meeting with our supervisor Mark Davis, the owner of the wallet expressed his gratefulness and stated that it's good to know that there are still honest people out there. Peter, it is with great pleasure that we present this award to you. Thank you for your honesty and integrity, and we are proud to have you on our team.
In the words of one of our valued clients:
I want to take a moment to nominate Mr. Marquis Ballard as Prudential Security’s employee of the month. As you are aware, Mr. Ballard goes above and beyond that of a typical security officer. He will stay over his normal shift (sometimes a bit too long) in order to make sure the shifts are covered at Federal-Mogul. Recently, Mr. Ballard has further proven his worth by writing the security manual for the Federal-Mogul World Headquarters location. This was not an easy project. In fact, other security officers have tried and failed where Mr. Ballard has been successful.
Lastly, I asked that Mr. Ballard review compiled video from a covert camera that was installed to see if anything was being stolen from a storage safe. During his review, Mr. Ballard identified a suspect stealing precious metals from a safe. This is being investigated further but we believe that because of Mr. Ballard’s efforts, the suspect will be prosecuted. Mr. Ballard could have easily not watched hours of basically dull and boring video. However, Mr. Ballard did the job right and he did it well.
Prudential Security is fortunate to have an officer like Mr. Ballard working for them. I believe Mr. Ballard is a valuable asset to your company and he should be recognized.
