The messages arrive a few times each year. Emails, voicemails, notes from staff. They are all similar.
“Vince, a woman called. She has one of our keys and when her son passed away it was in his belongings. She’s looking for help on what it may go to. She’s hoping you can help her. Can you call her?”
To me it seems obvious. My work matters. I work within the security field. I have for many years now.
The early years of my career were filled with rewarding work within Security Management, Investigations, and Operations. My work protected people. Good people like employees, customers, vendors, and others benefited from life safety and physical security systems I managed and directed. My work investigated and addressed challenges in the workplace like sexual harassment, employee fraud, and organized crime. I trained staff in workplace safety, being first responders and even self-defense training.
