Officer Danny Stephens of the Securitas Indianapolis, IN branch was conducting a preventative patrol inspection in a high rise/luxury condominium property when he discovered a serious water leak in the hallway.

The water had already saturated the carpet and was streaming out of the ceiling at an alarming rate. Officer Stephens quickly made his way to the restroom on the same floor to grab a waste basket to help contain the massive amount of water. He then proceeded to notify the on-call maintenance technician for that property.

Officer Stephens' immediate reaction to contain the leak not only stopped the destruction from continuing but also saved the customer thousands of dollars in estimated repairs. A leak like this one would have continued from the fourth floor to the basement causing tens of thousands of dollars in damage. The customer was ecstatic that this was found and commended Officer Stephens and Securitas Mobile on a job well done.

The vigilance Officer Stephens demonstrated is a shining example of Securitas' core values - Integrity, Vigilance and Helpfulness.

Water damages cause billions of dollars of structural, operational, reputational and financial losses each year for commercial property owners. Preventative patrol inspections help catch issues such as water leaks before they become serious and provide valuable return on investment.
