Congratulations to Haley Black, Calais Community Hospital Security Officer, for being selected as Securitas Northeast Region Officer of the Year for Heroism. The award is to recognize officers for giving of themselves and modeling Securitas’ core values. Securitas began providing security services at Calais Community Hospital in 2016. Haley has been part of the Securitas team assigned to CCH since 2017.
Securitas North America annually recognizes two security officers—one for heroism and one for outstanding performance. The recipients are chosen based on nominations from their colleagues and managers. Haley was nominated for the Heroism Award by her manager, Richard Hickson, for an incident that occurred at CCH where Haley intervened to protect others. She did not hesitate and acted to prevent further injury. Hickson added, “I can depend on her to use professional judgment while working and I am proud to have her as one of my officers.”
Haley was presented with the Northeast Region Award at CCH last week by Northern New England Healthcare Branch Manager Michael Parsons and Account Manager Richard Hickson. She is now one of 5 nominees, out of over 100,000 officers, that will be considered for the Officer of the Year Nationwide Award by Securitas North America.
