Caldwell, N.J. – Sept. 19, 2018 – Campus Safety Officer Brunel Blaise received the Security Officer of the Year award from the American Society for Industrial Security, Western NJ chapter 088.
He was presented with the award by Michael Stanzilis, general manager of G4S Secure Solutions (USA) Inc. and ASIS chapter chairman, at the organization’s Security Professional Appreciation Day, Sept. 11 at the Wyndham Hamilton Park Hotel and Conference Center in Florham Park, New Jersey.
Stanzilis said Blaise is “well respected by the community, students, staff, faculty, and outside visitors.”” He pointed out that Blaise is known for his leadership skills and helps train new officers. Alumni who return to campus often remember the positive impact Blaise had on their lives. “Security should not always be known for issuing tickets, writing discipline reports, or enforcing rules and policies. Security should be known as friendly, familiar faces who are approachable, professional, and compassionate. Blaise is this officer, and we are proud to have him a part of our security team,” said Stanzilis.
Also attending the luncheon with Blaise was his wife, Sheila Blaise, Glenn Gates, director of campus safety, who nominated Blaise for the honor, and Sheila O’Rourke, vice president for institutional effectiveness.
