Yale Security Officers Thanked for Their Outstanding Service

February 22, 2017

During Monday roll call, Yale Security Officers Arnold “Arnie” Jandreu and Gerry Mulligan were pleasantly surprised with an #outofthebluethanks that included thank you cards, a gift and applause! Letters of gratitude were written on their behalf by a Yale Director and a gentleman visiting New Haven.  Both officers work second shift and helped one individual find his car at night and help safeguard a cashier operation. 

Arnie noticed a gentleman wandering around Wall Street one evening and asked if he could help.  “Steve” couldn’t remember where he parked his car and Arnie “patiently walked with him for a long time” eventually finding his car on Temple Street!  Steve was “very grateful” and wanted him to be recognized. 

Gerry “has gone over and beyond to safeguard the cashier operation at HAG,” stated the letter written by the Yale’s Director of Fleet & Housing.  Gerry found out that there was concern with regard to the parking attendants cashing out at night, being that they work alone.  He made it a point to be at Howard Avenue Garage (HAG) just at the time the shifts change to check in with the attendants then and at closing time. His “professional, kindness and caring is beyond what would be expected,” read the letter. 

Yale Administration and Public Safety are grateful for Arnie and Gerry’s outstanding service to the University, its community and visitors!
