Lauryn English, security supervisor at Toronto’s CN Tower, was recently recognized with a Canadian Security Lifesaver Association lifesaver award.
The award was presented to English as a result of her decisive and thoughtful actions that reunited a lost child with his parents.
English was the security supervisor on duty at the CN Tower one evening last November, when informed by police that a child with special needs had run away from home and was believed to be in the area. English acted quickly and, in coordination with her security team, located the child, who was speaking with an unknown adult male. English intervened, and the child was returned to his parents by police. The child was invited by CN Tower staff to return to the Toronto landmark for a proper visit in the coming weeks.
English was presented the award by CSLA board members Sherri Ireland, president of Security Exclusive, and Mario Coutinho, vice-president, stadium operations & security, Rogers Centre. Roxanne Krause, director of operations, security, and Tyler O’Dell, assistant director, operations, security, CN Tower, were also in attendance for the award presentation.
CSLA lifesaver awards are awarded quarterly to frontline security professionals whose direct actions result in saving an individual’s life. For more details on the CSLA and how to nominate a security professional, visit the CSLA website.
Canadian Security is the official media partner for the CSLA. Canadian Security editor Neil Sutton is also a board member.
