Allied Universal, a leading security and facility services company, and Triple Recipient of 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards, is proud to recognize security officers during the fourth annual National Security Officer Appreciation Week, September 16 – 22, 2018.
“National Security Officer Appreciation Week honors the incredible efforts of our nation’s security officers to create safer and more secure environments,” explains Steve Jones, CEO, Allied Universal.
“The appreciation week is also an opportunity to profile the many roles security officers fill; debunk misconceptions and stereotypes; and raise awareness of the career opportunities that exist within the security services industry.”
The security officers who strive to help maintain safe and secure workplaces, schools, shopping malls and communities deserve our heartfelt appreciation.
Security officers are hard-working, highly trained men and women who serve amongst our country’s protectors, guardians and first responders.
These individuals deter crime, lead evacuations, provide information, work closely with local law enforcement and are constantly vigilant in their efforts to keep us safe.

- Recognize their contributions
- Profile the many roles security officers fill
- Debunk old misconceptions and stereotypes
- Raise awareness for security career opportunities
