As many of us know, sometimes we each need assistance navigating the process within the local DMV location. The USI security officers who work at the 16 DMV locations in Connecticut provide more than security. In many cases, they are providing concierge services for people on their journey at the DMV.
Listed below are some examples of USI security officers who have been recognized for their service.

A couple had been to the DMV to get their license renewed. The process went perfectly until they got home and realized the wife had left her purse at the DMV location. They rushed back to the DMV, but it was closed. As they were walking back to their car a security officer pulled up and asked if they had lost a purse.
Officer Figueroa proceeded back into the DMV to obtain the lost purse. After proper identification of the women the purse was returned.

The couple missed this phone call as they had already left their home to return to the DMV. This couple submitted a letter to the DMV explaining the detail and effort Officer Figueroa went to make sure the couple knew the purse was safe.
