A Message from the President
Remembering Our Friends In Memoriam: Remembering Carol Borer and Ilene Greenfield This summer we said goodbye to two women who we’re hugely influential on this company and me personally. Carol Borer passed away on June 30th and Ilene Greenfield passed on July 21. Both ladies fought long and courageous battles with cancer.
Team, Those of us who work for G4S know what G4S is all about. We play an essential role in the safety, security and protection of the American public and our nation’s infrastructure. As you browse this issue, remember who you are! The actions of the security officers featured in the publication are exemplary, but not uncommon. The stories you see here are a small fraction of the challenges security officers like you overcome on a daily basis. It takes preparation, training and professionalism to meet these challenges. You are G4S. This summer a group of G4S employees worked together to create a video that explains who we are and gives everyone an opportunity to demonstrate company pride. You’ll learn more about the “I am G4S” campaign on page 1. Also in this issue, on page 3, you’ll read about “Shout Outs” our new weekly email and video that recognizes G4S employees and teams across the United States who exemplify hard work, serving our business and our clients. Never miss a “Shout Out” by ensuring that your human resources team have your current email address on file. It is with great pleasure and excitement that we present 2015’s Gold Club awardees in this issue. It’s truly remarkable what we have accomplished and it is with great respect and admiration that we can recognize so many of our General Managers and Managers of Business Development. This year’s lineup featured on page 4 was exceptional and we want to congratulate all for their effort, commitment to excellence and performance.
Carol was my executive assistant and was a valued member of our team for more than 16 years and was recognized as Employee of the Year in 2008. She was my best friend at work and a great assistant and Carol Borer served as my voice and the voice of the organization on countless occasions in support of our mission. Filled with style, grace and a terrific sense of humor, all you needed was 10 minutes with Carol to know how special she was. Ilene joined our organization in 1985. With her meticulous planning for the annual ASIS show, a conference or Gold Club, we never worried or even looked back. It was Ilene; She had it covered. Ilene was promoted to Manager of Operations and Administration in January of 2000 and again to Director in 2002 and finally to Sr. Director in 2003. Ilene Greenfield In her last role with the company she looked after all Administration for Secure Solutions reporting into Danny Grizzard. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Carol and Ilene. There are those who love and those who are loved and then there are these ladies, who excelled at both. They will be forever missed and never forgotten.

Lt. Steve Hoover showing how he works safely
The Pittsburgh office kicked off the “Why I Work Safely” campaign with an exciting photo contest. The idea came from Regional Training Director, Michael Zagger, in an attempt to get the officers more involved. Zagger challenged officers for all sites out of Pittsburgh to take pictures of how they practice safety in their own locations. The winner was Lt. Steve Hoover out of Grove City, Pennsylvania. Lt. Hoover demonstrated the proper wearing of PPE when checking incoming vehicles into the Grove plant.

Also, please join me in congratulating those officers who are recognized in this publication on a job well done. This is my sixth year at G4S Regulated Security Solutions (RSS). Before that I was an FBI Agent. While in the FBI, I performed several duties, but the one that stands out is the seven years I was a SWAT Operator on the FBI’s enhanced SWAT Team in Miami. It was the training and execution of the mission that have given me a unique appreciation for what our security officers at RSS are tasked with doing daily at nuclear power plants throughout the United States. You are highly trained and work in an environment that demands exceptional performance. Lives depend on it and that’s an enormous responsibility!

PBNP Officer Wins RSS Employee of the Quarter Congratulations to Security Officer James Londree, our RSS Employee of the Quarter. On two separate occasions, Officer Londree identified prohibited items while operating the x-ray machine at the South Gatehouse at Point Beach.

under tremendous financial pressure and need to reduce costs to continue to operate. The term the industry uses is “Delivering the Nuclear Promise.” The challenges for some utilities are monumental and several plants have announced their intention to decommission in the near future. Our company and our security professionals at RSS are uniquely positioned to aid the industry in delivering that promise. Our operations model is cost effective and we have proven ourselves to be an organization that delivers outstanding performance with safety driving our daily activities. As we move forward, I’m challenging each of you to embrace the current challenges in the industry and rededicate yourself to doing everything in your power to add value to our team. This starts with a professional appearance and positive attitude no matter what your position is within RSS. Most of you are wearing a military-style uniform and carrying high-powered weapons as you go about your daily work activities. You are constantly being observed by those at your site. Take pride in that and use it as an opportunity to illustrate our company is a world-class security organization. Again, thank you for your efforts. I’m proud of you and I am committed to RSS’s continuous improvement.

Regulated Security Solutions PBNP Officers Prevent Potential Theft
First Millstone Officer Accepted to NEI Composite Adversary Team
L-R: Sergeant Matt Hessemer, Officer Mike Ross, Officer Nathan Luebke
While roving patrol officer Mike Ross was on duty, he observed an individual carrying items toward a vehicle. The individual confronted Officer Ross, and through his training and experience, Ross was able to observe and report the potential theft of company equipment to the Central Alarm Station. Back-up officers, Officer Nathan Luebke and Sgt. Matt Hassemer responded to help control the situation until local law enforcement arrived on the scene. Due to the quick actions of Officer Ross, and the additional response of Officers Luebke and Hassemer, the situation was resolved without incident or threat to the facility.
Security Officer Samuel Turker
For 11 days, Samuel Turker and 15 other hand-selected Nuclear Security Officers from around the country were put through a Special Forces-type boot camp, where those who successfully completed the course were offered positions on the NEI Composite Adversary Team. Not only did Turker complete the course successfully, he also received the “Top Dog” award, given to the top overall performer of the participants. Congratulations, and we wish Samuel the best of luck in his time away from the station.

From: Manager of Operations, Transit System To: G4S Manager Operations Joseph Breaux Location: Washington state I would like to speak on behalf of myself and Al and other staff… regarding the abilities of Daniel Monger. Our response from Operation and the riding public in general has been very positive when Mr. Monger is on duty.
From: Facilities Manager at a commercial real estate office building To: G4S Area Supervisor Robert D. Jones Location: Downtown Seattle I just wanted to let you know that an employee just came up to me to let me know how much they appreciate the security staff. She’s really impressed with how warm and inviting they make her feel, which is so different from other places she’s worked.
From: Assistant Vice President, Union Bank To: G4S Regional Manager Rod Natale Location: San Diego We recently had a security officer named Jenkins work at our branch temporarily for a few days. While he was here, we had a customer come in to do a transaction. She left and shortly later she came back in a panic. She couldn’t find her cell phone. Jenkins walked around the entire lobby and searched high and low for her phone as well as asking every employee if it had been returned. We didn’t have it. Our customer walked out of the branch bawling. Jenkins could have very easily left it at that but instead, he walked out with her to her car to help her search. It turns out, the phone had fallen in a crack between the seats. The customer was beyond relieved as she didn’t have the means to replace the phone. Jenkins definitely showed what it means to live Union Bank’s purpose. He was a tremendous asset to have while he was here and a couple of customers have asked about him since he left. Wonderful job Jenkins!
