Meet our Security Officers of the Year
Securitas North America annually recognizes one security officer for heroism and one for outstanding performance. The Security Officer of the Year recipients are chosen based on nominations from their colleagues and managers.
Theodore “Theo” Vaughn – Security Officer of the Year for Heroism
The Heroism award is presented to a security officer who performs an act that demonstrates courage, daring, professionalism and self-sacrifice while helping to protect people or property. This year’s recipient, Security Officer Theodore “Theo” Vaughn, is from the Pacific Region and works at two shopping centers owned by the same property management company. While on patrol, Officer Vaughn noticed a vehicle on fire with a person passed out inside. Realizing there was no time to waste he rushed to the vehicle and pulled the person to safety.
