Water Leak Found By Security Just In Time

Posted by Adam Koehler on May 21, 2015 12:47:00 PM

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.

North Miami Beach Chamber Admires Luxury, Discusses Security

Posted by Adam Koehler on Jun 24, 2013 3:33:00 PM

North Miami Beach Director of Police Services Tom Carney and Officer Ramon Santos

If you need an apartment that you can keep your yacht out back, then Lincoln Pointe Apartments are for you. 

Members of the North Miami Beach Chamber, including Securitas Mobile and the North Miami Beach Police Department, toured this luxury facility to welcome their newest member.   

The speaker for the event was North Miami Beach Director of Police Services Tom Carney.  He discussed new ideas which included community policing and new technological advances, such as texting 911 for emergencies.  

In previous emergency situations, such as the school shooting in Newtown, CT, students had access to cell phones, but could not speak while they were hiding from the gunman.  The ability to text 911 in similar situations would be extremely beneficial. 

Director Carney and Branch Manager David Bowling met with Property Manager Nadine Welsh and explained the benefits of the partnership between Securitas Mobile and the local police.  At the moment, Lincoln Pointe doesn’t use a security vendor.  They rely completely on the police department.  BM David Bowling explained advantages of the added level of protection that properties enjoy by combining a security presence along with their local police department. 

Lincoln Pointe is located in the prestigious Aventura community where neighbors include the Aventura Mall, Turnberry Isle, and Williams Island.
