G4S recognized nationally for support of the armed forces

JUPITER, Fla., Nov. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- G4S, the United States' leading integrated security provider, was recognized by the U.S. Army's Private Public Partnership Office (P3O) and the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) during the company's annual Veterans Day ceremony.

The ESGR presented Brian McCabe, President of G4S Retail Cash Solutions, with the Patriot Award, reflecting the efforts made by McCabe to support members of the Guard and Reserve. McCabe was nominated by David Wetzel, Senior Software Architect for G4S Retail Cash Solutions, and a member of the U.S. Navy and U.S. Army Reserves. McCabe joins a list of G4S employees in Los Angeles, North Carolina and Puerto Rico who have received the Patriot Award in 2018.

"We are proud of the many veterans of the armed forces working for G4S," said Drew Levine, President of G4S Secure Solutions (USA). "With 25% of our workforce comprised of veterans, we are committed to supporting their dedication to our country and providing them with the resources to excel as members of the armed forces and as employees of G4S."

At the ceremony, G4S signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the U.S. Army Reserve's P3O. The MOU will facilitate a relationship between G4S and the P3O that encourages the hiring initiatives for Army Reserve Soldiers, family members and veterans.

The ESGR also presented G4S Secure Solutions (USA) with the Seven Seals Award, the fourth time G4S has been recognized. The award honors individuals and organizations that support the ESGR mission.

For the fifth straight year, G4S was awarded the Pro Patria Award from ESGR in Florida, the highest award that may be bestowed by an ESGR State Committee. G4S was also named a Military Friendly Employer and a Military Friendly Spouse Employer.

G4S has received numerous awards across the country for the company's commitment to members of the armed forces. In August, G4S Seattle was named the Veteran Friendly Employer of the Year by American Veterans (AMVETS) for the office's commitment to hiring veterans in King County.
