Always Prepared,
Day After Day.

Through targeted recruiting, thorough screening and intensive training, we’ve built a company of high quality and highly qualified people. Our culture is one of trust and respect, of professional growth and pride in our work. That’s why more than 4,700 security officers have joined our force, and hundreds of clients have placed their security in our hands.

  • Stronger recruiting

    When you’re selected by Walden, it’s a testament to your character. We seek out people who are motivated, eager to learn, committed to serving our clients and always doing what’s right. We thoroughly screen and carefully select every employee, and assign our officers to posts where they will be most successful.

  • Top-tier training

    At Walden, we provide the resources, support and training that you need to be successful. Our commitment: to ensure that every employee is confident in their position before they ever work a shift on their own. We build on their success by continuing to develop our officers so that they have opportunities to grow within our organization.

  • Better Retention

    For many Walden officers, their work is more than a job: it’s a career. So we strive to keep them motivated and fulfilled. We provide flexible schedules, competitive benefits, advancement opportunities, and a workplace culture that’s diverse and supportive — which is why we’re an award-winning employer, with one of the highest retention rates in the industry.

  • “I wanted to pass along to Walden leadership that our officers were crucial in helping me prepare for our security audit. Without their help — not just the few days leading up to the audit, but the way they conduct their business throughout the year — in maintaining and gathering records and information I have no doubt the audit would not have been nearly as successful.”

  • “I commend our HCSD Officers on their role in stopping a threat of lethal. Their quick action prevented physical harm from occurring. I am thankful for their immediate and extraordinary response to this incident, and for their routine service. They are vital instruments on our security team.”

  • “I just want to personally thank Officer Smith for his professionalism and kindness. This weekend, students converged on our clinic to help paint murals in the pediatric area. Officer Smith was not only there the entire time, but was more than willing to help direct the media, parents and other visitors to this wonderful project. He treated everyone first-class and made this experience invaluable for everyone involved.”

  • “I wanted to say a very heartfelt “Thank You” to your security officer, Officer Powell. He was working in uptown Charlotte on Christmas Eve and we were having dinner. Our car was stolen after we used the valet service. Mr. Powell was really the only person that listened to our concerns and tried to help us handle the situation. He was there to answer questions for the police officer while we were filing the report, etc. He even offered for me and my children to come into the building to stay warm. He was the only bright spot in the entire situation, and we really appreciate it.”

    Appreciative Community Members
  • “The Security Team did an EXCELLENT JOB handling the check in of our Board Members yesterday and today. They were observant and on point the entire time. They not only provided excellent customer service to our Board Members, but this EXCELLENT SERVICE was extended to every employee that entered the building. I cannot thank this team enough.”

    Supervisor, Public Utility, Facilities Operations
  • “Anthony does an outstanding job keeping the peace, responding to patient and family questions, and generally brightening everyone’s day. There is no question whatsoever that if you call Anthony for anything, he does it promptly and with the same positive attitude. Anthony is the kind of person that we want on our campus interacting with our patients, physicians, and staff to promote the true culture of our hospital.”
