Adeel Usman (Adi), security officer at TC Security Services, has received an Officer of Distinction award at a lunch hosted by ACS Pacesetters. He was nominated by Andy Jenkins, the operations manager at Vicarage Road Stadium, home of Premier League Watford Football Club, and where Usman has worked since the Autumn of 2016. It is here where he, along with the rest of the TC Security Services team, provides a range of services including manned guarding and CCTV alongside a raft of added value services to help reduce risk and maintain excellent health and safety at the stadium and training ground.
Andy Jenkins nominated Adi Usman after his quick-thinking, diligence and observation skills resulted in an intruder being apprehended and arrested, safeguarding the 22,000-seater Vicarage Road ground. As part of his regular patrol of the site, Usman became conscious of an intruder and used the state-of-the-art camera technology in use at the ground to identify the intruder’s location as a thorough physical search of the area had not been successful. The cameras identified the precise location of the intruder and, although when the police initially attended the suspect had disappeared, thanks to Usman's ongoing diligence and observation skills the intruder was successfully apprehended and arrested.
Adi Usman said: “At first I was surprised as I never expected to be nominated to receive an award. After my surprise, I then realised that my hard work had been recognised, and it felt good. I'm enjoying a great experience at the Watford FC site as I get to interact with various professionals with whom I've a strong bond, and with staff who are very supportive and friendly.”
Richard Chappell, CEO TC Facilities Management, the parent company of TC Security Services, said: “Adi’s diligence and quick-thinking provides testament to the commitment TC Security Services displays to its clients, their people and a determination to provide customer-focussed service to provide complete peace of mind.”
