Hilton Garden Inn Bags the Award for Excellence for Community Policing, South District 2009.
Hilton Garden Inn New Delhi/Saket has been honored with the “Award of Excellence for Community Policing, South District 2009.” The award has been given to recognize the hotel as the most secure hotel in Delhi.
The award in the form of a trophy and certificate was given to Mr. Rakesh Dabas, Head of Security, in a Delhi police function by the Joint Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ajay Kashyap, on 18th December 2009. This award is given to organizations adopting best security policies and measures in their respective sectors, annually. Our hotel has won this award in the most secure hotel category, in terms of alertness of security personnel, the security equipment installed in the hotel premises, vigilant and adept policies in place for security measures and on basis of surprise simulation tests conducted by Delhi police.
The Delhi police team conducted surprise checks at various hotels in the city and adjudged them in terms of their preparedness, contingency plans and level of alertness. Their checklist included effective supervision and control procedures, policies and practices to minimize the “presence” and “patronage” of “shady characters” and criminals and ground preparedness for detecting suspicious objects/unwarranted equipments.
The team came to the hotel unannounced, observed and did a frisking of all vital areas. They even questioned the security personnel with respect to the attentiveness and know how on security training. They later revealed their identity and commended the hotel security team on their preparedness regarding threat detection, risk assessment and personal protection.
The much deserved award has been a result of our strengthened security measures by deploying adequate and well trained manpower at various entry and exit points. Despite being a new hotel our enhanced security measures were much appreciated and have been applauded by the visiting police team.
The fact that besides manpower, we also have equipped our hotel to deal with various situations in order to sustain the peaceful and secure atmosphere was mentioned specially by the team.
Needless to state, these measures have not been taken foreseeing a certain threat or due to lack of an existing secure feel but are part of our efforts to convey the message to everyone that we are committed and serious when it comes to the well being, safety and security of our guests, co-workers, as well as our corporate assets and environment. Also, to indicate that we do not wish to compromise even to a small extent on the Safety and Security front.
