Protecting Our Students & Defending Our School

ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN THE FALL/WINTER 2019 MESSENGER MAGAZINE

Heritage continues to enhance the safety and security of our school. Our Safety and Security department stands ready to defend and protect the Heritage community in any situation.

The department consistently evaluates policies, procedures, and personnel to effectively serve all who depend on them. We've also made it a priority to hire veterans and former officers, and currently have over 35 years of military and enforcement experience on our internal security team. On a daily basis, this team connects with our students and staff to create a relationship of trust and open communication.

Recently, we promoted Brayden McIntyre to be Manager of Security, reporting to Director of Security Ed Ingle. Brayden began serving Heritage as a safety and security officer in early 2018, when his two children enrolled at Heritage. He previously served as a sergeant for the Butler County Sheriff's Office in Ohio, and has experience as a security supervisor at a corrections facility, an EMT, and an immigration and customs enforcement officer.

"I have worked at a lot of places where I felt unappreciated. That can really wear down your morale. I don't feel that way at Heritage," he said.

The members of our Safety and Security department care deeply about making the Heritage Christian campus feel safe for our students, staff, and families and they work tirelessly every day to make that happen.

Brayden oversees many daily tasks such as camera monitoring, key card and entrance management, supervision of contracted officers, and parking issues, but his biggest daily undertaking is directing traffic to get 500-600 cars on and off campus during arrival and dismissal.

"We are constantly looking for and finding new ways to improve our campus and make it a safe place." said Brayden.
