BWFH Director of Police, Security, Safety and Parking chairs two professional security organizations
Both organizations provide networking opportunities and education for the private security industry. IAHSS specifically focuses on healthcare security, a field that poses a unique set of challenges. At IAHSS, Ditta is able to learn what challenges other hospitals in the area face and how they address them. She can also share BWFH’s best practices. "My colleagues at other hospitals and other institutions, they’re amazing. They have such a wealth of knowledge. It’s always so nice to talk to them because they’re going though the same thing I’m going through or they’ve done it in the past," says Ditta.
Ditta originally became involved both groups for the networking experience. "I wanted to be more than just someone in one hospital. So I wanted to get my name out there," she says. As Chair of both organizations, she has more than made a name for herself. She is now truly a leader in the field of healthcare security.
