Walden Security Launches SpeakUp! Confidential Employee Hotline

CHATTANOOGA, TN (October 30, 2005) -- Walden Security announced today that it has successfully launched SpeakUp!, a company-wide confidential employee hotline program. SpeakUp! was implemented to raise awareness of illegal, unethical, or irresponsible acts that sometimes occur in the workplace.

By calling 1.800.350.3951, Walden Security employees can reach a representative toll-free, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

To provide total anonymity, Walden Security selected one of the nation’s leading independent reporting firms, The Network Inc., to administer the service for use by more than 1,100 full-time Walden Security employees.

"When a Walden Security employee takes a proactive approach by reporting wrong behavior, it builds a trust with the client that is invaluable," said Rick Burkhalter, Sr. VP and COO of Walden Security, "plus, it creates a positive atmosphere that elevates our standards of protection and service to our customers."
