Officer Profile: Ken Becker, Head of School Security
Ken Becker is the head of security at a private K-12 school in Naples, Florida, and an excellent example of the people we employ at Cambridge Security.
At the school, Ken’s role includes leading a team of security officers, monitoring 97 closed circuit cameras, patrolling the school campus by foot and by golf cart, and supervising student arrivals and dismissals, and overseeing the school’s controlled access entry system throughout the day. His service to the school community goes above and beyond these critical security tasks, however. For example, it’s not uncommon to see Officer Becker chatting with students during lunch in the school’s dining hall, or kicking a soccer ball with kindergarteners during recess. To Ken, being engaged with the school community is simply a part of the job.
Before taking the position at the school, Ken served with the Collier County Sheriff’s Office for 30 years, 20 of which were spent in the Criminal Investigation Division. A longtime member and, later, a supervisor, of the Special Crimes Bureau, Ken’s work focused on children’s welfare. He is trained to assist in traffic control, administer CPR and AED, and respond to all emergencies.
