Officer James Guerrero – Attentive and Always Looking Out for Us

When asked to share a story about a Hero on-site, Sr. Supervisor Yadira Rodriguez shared this: "As the pandemic hit in March 2020, everyone was questioning what would happen to humanity, and efforts to create a COVID-19 vaccine to battle the pandemic that has devasted so many families around the world began. Fast forward to December 2020, when the FDA issued the Emergency Use Authorization (EAU) for the first COVID-19 vaccine - many officers were concerned that it was not safe. However, our Security Manager, Michael Budd, believes it is safe and is in everyone's best interest to get the COVID-19 vaccine. He set the example and raised the bar by stepping up to get vaccinated.   Manager   Budd   had   thevaccine in a couple of seconds, and 15 minutes later, he was back in action working away. The vaccine is a sign of hope for the future and a light at the end of the tunnel! Seeing our manager feeling great made officers at our facility start to reconsider getting the vaccine. Michael Budd stepping up and setting the example helped move our team from a 25% to a 60% vaccination rate quickly. "Thank you for your excellent leadership, Security Manager Michael Budd - what a great way to lead by example!

ED Specialist Monica Panganiban – Patience and Kindness
Officer Carissa Palomarez – Selfless Response to a Hit and Run 

ED Specialist Monica Panganiban from GA received a heartfelt thank you note from a suicidal patient she watched while on hold. The patient later expressed gratitude for Officer Panganiban's kindness and shared that Officer Panganiban was the reason she voluntarily boarded the ambulance for transport to the hospital. Officer Panganiban's de-escalation skills showed compassion and empathy, allowing the patient to avoid further interaction with law enforcement or the need for restraints. This story is an excellent example of our officers' impact on the care experience for members and clinical staff.  You are a true HERO, Monica – well done!

Healthcare Security Officer Carissa Palomarez received recognition from the Oxnard client for her selfless response to a hit and run. One evening, while escorting Alex, a client team member, to their car after closing, Officer Palomarez and Alex heard a loud noise and screaming from the road. Without hesitation, they immediately responded. A pedestrian was severely injured in a hit-and-run accident. Officer Palomarez attended to the victim, applying pressure to their wounds, and keeping them calm, while Alex called 911 for emergency services. Both of these heroes did a great job keeping the victim safe, directing traffic, and keeping emergency services informed until paramedics and police arrived. They even managed to contact the victim's family to come and be with their injured loved one. 

Thank you for your selfless response and kind actions Office Palomarez. You are a genuine Everyday Hero!

A Message from BCI and Securitas Leadership

Our Officers are Healthcare Security Professionals. They embody and own the safety of our nation's care environment. They put on their uniform each day and head to the front line, tasked with the responsibility of keeping our medical facilities, doctors, nurses, and patients safe. Here are some stories and messages we would like to highlight, in appreciation of our Front Line Heroes.

To all Officers

We see you, we honor you, we value you, and we thank you for your service and dedication.

You have a critical role to play, and we could not be doing this without you. THANK YOU!
