"The commitment, dedication and professionalism that everyone demonstrated were commendable. They have taken great measures to ensure that the store does not become a haven for criminal activity and that the customers and employees are safe. Many supervisors and police officers comment regularly about the great work done by your security personnel in catching shoplifters, assisting the police in their investigations, and providing safety measures for the public."
