Walden Security is something of a right-hand man -- or in this case, woman -- to businesses and government. Majority owned and operated by women (the company is controlled by co-founder, chairman, and CEO Amy Walden), the security services contractor recruits, trains, and manages uniformed security professionals to guard such sites as airports, auto dealerships, manufacturing facilities, museums, office buildings, residences, schools, and shopping malls. It is also contracted by the US General Services Administration to provide alarm monitors, clerks, court security officers, and police officers. Walden Security has operations in about 15 states.
Employees are offered both instructor-led and Web-based security services training, which cover such topics as communications, report writing, and emergency situations. The firm complements its training programs with management services that encompass handling scheduling, payroll, financial reports, and other human resources-related work. – less
