Security Update for Families

Earlier this week a family member of an individual we support left a threatening message on a Summit DD employee’s voicemail.  The Summit County Sheriff and local police jurisdictions responded immediately and placed the individual under arrest and worked with our internal safety team to further secure the building and implement precautionary measures.

Our primary concern is always with our employees, individuals we support, and the community.  In an abundance of caution, we have further limited our entrance and exit points to the buildings to the main entrance only for both employees and visitors.  We have no reason to believe that there is an imminent threat and have taken these steps simply as a precautionary measure.

As we have more information, we will share it with you.

Update on Precautionary Security Measures

The health and safety of our employees, those we support and the community is always our primary concern.  Earlier this week one of our employees received a threatening voicemail. The Summit County Sheriff’s Office and local police jurisdictions took immediate action to make an arrest and help secure our buildings.  While we believe there is not an imminent threat, we have taken precautionary actions to further secure our buildings.  We will continue to practice extra vigilance during this time and will continue to work with local police jurisdictions to ensure that Summit DD is a safe place for people of all abilities.
