An Axis Security officer, Jameel Jobey, has been recognised with a Security Officer of Distinction Award at the second ACS Pacesetters Achievement Awards Luncheon, held at the Royal Windsor Racecourse on 20th May.
Jameel has worked at the Woking Shopping Centre for three and a half years, and his hard work warranted Jonathan Rushworth, Site Security Manager, to nominate him for the award.
Jameel has twice prevented shoplifters from stealing approximately c.£2,000 worth of goods, contained an assault and racial abuse case on two shopkeepers, and successfully resuscitated an elderly lady who had fallen and was not breathing.
Chris Wisely, Managing Director at Axis Security Services, emphasised the training that his officers undertake: “We train our officers to a high level, so they are fully equipped to deal with any situation, however challenging.”
Jameel is delighted to be recognised for an award: “I am happy to help everyone at Woking Shopping Centre, visitor or employee, creating a safer environment for all.”
The ACS Pacesetter Achievement Awards recognise officers who have given meritorious service to the industry over a long period of time, or have averted some major crisis on their client’s premises. This year, 14 officers were awarded with the Security Officer of Distinction Award.
