Safety & Security
It is the desire of the Safety and Security Department at Heritage to stand ready to defend and protect the HCS family and serve all who depend on us to be prepared in any situation. Our department consistently evaluates policies and procedures to protect and more faithfully serve the Heritage community. Feel free to contact us with any and all needs.
Our security department includes over 40 years of military training and experience. We make it a priority to hire veterans and former officers as a part of our internal security team. On a daily basis, this team connects with our students and employees to create a relationship of trust and open communication.
