All-Stars All-Stars A Message from the President
Bank Protection Officer Identifies Bomb Threat Suspect to Police
We received a letter recently from our G4S Detroit office that made me proud because it reflects the importance of the professionalism of our Security Officers. Many of you who read my column in this magazine know I am proud of our Officer because of the high-quality, hard work they do every day. Often times, they are the public face of our company and you continue to be the recognizable difference between G4S and other companies. The letter we received explained how Bank Protection Officer Neil Smith, in Detroit, was approached by a banking customer who inquired about G4S. The customer, who is a store leader at Whole Foods, was impressed with Officer Smith’s work ethic and professionalism and he wanted to know how he liked his job and our company. Officer Smith responded in his usual positive way and asked if someone from G4S should contact him about a potential assignment at Whole Foods. Soon, G4S called on the customer and engaged in the sales process. As it turned out, G4S was not the company immediately selected by this new customer as our costs were higher. As time went on, the customer and Officer Smith saw each other frequently. BPO Smith was there in the rain, the cold and the heat of the Detroit summer. G4S stayed in contact with the customer too. Soon, G4S was asked to revisit our proposal for Whole Foods in the fall of 2013. Our team asked what G4S Officer Neil Smith had changed and the store leader said: “I see Officer Neil almost every morning. I have a better relationship with him than with my own guards.” Because of the positive image Officer Smith presented every day to this bank customer, G4S now has another customer. The Detroit team has recognized and honored Officer Smith for his part in the process. G4S Detroit General Manager Bryant Carter says it was a pleasure to shake Neil’s hand.
(L to R) G4S Site Manager James Newell and BPO Joseph Fee
Schenectady, NY: Bank Protection Officer Joseph Fee is being honored for his calm and professional efforts that led police to arrest a bomb-threat suspect. Early in the day, BPO Fee observed a man wearing a fake beard and wig walking in and out of a bank. He reported the incident to police. Later in the day, when the suspicious man returned, Fee called police again. When police stopped the man, they found he had a note with a bomb threat. Police arrested him and initiated an evacuation of the area. Fee assisted police during the evacuation and escorted bank employees to a safe location.
G4S Officer at Shipping Desk Finds Error, Saves Company $8,600+ Columbia, SC: G4S Officer Walter Webster is being recognized for his knowledgeable and professional work at a tool and equipment distribution center. In September 2013, Officer Webster identified an error in an order that was ready to be shipped. Officer Webster caught the error which saved the company more than $8,600. The distribution center manager said, “Officer Webster takes pride in his job, completes all assignments, reports and stays late when needed.”
Since then, the relationship with Whole Foods in Detroit has grown stronger thanks to outstanding work by another G4S Officer. On page three, you can read how Custom Protection Officer Damon Moore was recently named Employee of the Month at that location. This story reminds all of us that each officer not only serves our customers, but represents our company in a very public way. To all our G4S Officers and employees who work tirelessly to represent our clients and our company, I want to reach out and personally thank you for all you do. As you know, our ability to provide excellent service is directly tied to our exceptional employees. I thank you for your outstanding service to our company and our clients.

G4S Officer Helps Restore Power to Crime Lab Operations after Blackout Atlanta, GA: G4S Custom Protection Officer Aaron Fleming is being honored for his quick actions to restore power to the state police crime laboratory and morgue. After a power outage in the middle of the night, the generators turned on but the building’s electrical systems did not respond. CPO Fleming contacted the building’s chief engineer who guided him through the extensive repair process. Because CPO Fleming understood the operating systems, he restarted the HVAC units and brought the building to full operational capabilities. The efforts by CPO Fleming allowed the laboratories to continue processing their tests and evidence.
G4S officers and personnel are the best in the security business. Their dedication and passion for their work is unsurpassed. We honor our All Stars because they are men and women of character who lead our teams displaying leadership, discipline, integrity and a “can-do” attitude.
USO Honored for Actions to Keep Sports Facilities Safe
G4S Officer Recognized for Stopping Employee Theft
Philadelphia, PA: G4S USO Barry Harper is being honored for the consistently superior work he does at a large sports stadium complex. While on routine patrol, USO Harper discovered commercial ovens had been left on in the food services area of the complex. The discovery may have stopped a fire from occurring. During the summer, Harper also gave medical assistance to a contractor who cut his finger while using a chop saw. Although the contractor refused to go to the hospital, USO Harper made sure he received medical care on site.
G4S Officer Honored as Employee of the Month Detroit, MI: G4S Officer Damon Moore is being honored by Whole Foods Market for all the work he does to keep employees and customers safe. The employees voted him ‘team member of the month’ for January, 2014. The store leader wrote G4S to simply say, “Damon is great!!!” Damon stands post at a new Whole Foods Market in Midtown and he is part of an impressive team in Detroit. Whole Foods Market became a G4S client after a G4S Bank Protection Officer impressed executives. The full story is in the President’s Letter on page two.

These officers worked in extreme conditions in both
places. We had continuous tornado warnings, rain, and less-than-ideal-shelter. Everyone did an excellent job
considering the circumstances and operational challenges.
– Ira Mozee, Jr. G4S Director Strategic Accounts
BACKGROUND: Cox Communications called G4S for added security after a tornado exposed a fiber optic cable that was an essential part of the area’s communications system including the emergency 9-1-1 system. G4S Officers had to ensure the cable was protected from people, power restoration crews and clean-up trucks that were often working close by. After 11 days, a second tornado hit the same area exposing another fiber optic cable. G4S remained in Oklahoma to continue to support the protection and security of the fiber optic line until restoration was completed.
SPECIAL THANKS TO G4S TEAM LEADERS Joe Bickford | Jason Fazio | Rachael Sturgeon | Derrick Landrum | William Remmert | David Wackenhut I am writing this letter in recognition of G4S Directors Jason Fazio and Rachael Sturgeon, regarding their outstanding performance in support of Cox Corporate Security and Cox Communications during the recent tornado disasters in Oklahoma. Beginning on May 21, 2013 our office determined that additional security officer support was needed in Oklahoma to protect an exposed critical infrastructure fiber line among the tornado debris. This single line provided telephony, internet and cable services to over 100,000 customers, including critical emergency functions such as 9-1-1, medical and hospitals. With short notice, Jason and Rachael coordinated a G4S officer response to the disaster scene as our Corporate Security team pulled together necessary equipment and drove to Oklahoma. Upon our arrival 18 hours later, Rachael had the G4S team already on the ground and posted along the exposed fiber line. Rachael took the time to get to know me and my expectations of services from their staff. During the 11 days we were on the ground together, Rachael did a fantastic job in managing the officers and keeping our fiber line safe. She found the right people for the job and set the performance bar high. Both Jason and Rachael have been great partners with our office and I feel their service to Cox has gone above and beyond to help make us successful. Their exceptional performance and professionalism in support of our efforts should be recognized by Cox and G4S as the Gold Standard of Security Services. Sincerely, Andrew F. Corsaro, Director, Operations & Physical Security, Cox Corporate Security
Our Officers were also acutely aware that they were working among people who were going through a painful recovery. So when they could, our special team remained vigilant for residents too. Even with the National Guard present, some of the G4S Officers called 9-1-1 when they caught a group of looters in a disaster area.

Bank Officer Uses CPR, Saves Life Winston Salem, NC: G4S Bank Protection Officer Antonio Catalan is being honored for his professionalism on the job. Officer Catalan saw what he thought was a suspicious car stopped in front of a bank. When he approached the vehicle, he found a distraught driver and an unconscious passenger. BPO Catalan carried the passenger out of the SUV and placed the woman’s lifeless body onto the lawn. Because the woman was not breathing and had no pulse, Catalan started CPR. After five minutes, the woman started breathing and regained consciousness. Emergency responders arrived and took the woman to the hospital. Police praised Catalan for his actions and credited him with saving a life.

Safety and Training Two Officers Discover Fire before Automatic Alarms Minneapolis, MN: Two G4S Officers are being recognized for their proactive safety check that saved property and company assets after a middle-of-the-night power outage. G4S Officers Jerry Williams and Luke Knudson decided to perform a building patrol after a power interruption caused the building generators to turn on. While on patrol, the officers discovered smoke coming from the lower level parking garage and called the fire department. The emergency crews extinguished the fire quickly. Once the situation was under control, security managers realized the fire was discovered before the automated fire alarm system detected the blaze, saving property and assets.

Training Helps Officers Keep Data Center Running After Equipment Failure Alpharetta, GA: Two G4S Officers who were trained in system operations are being recognized for their quick work to contain a potentially damaging water leak from a malfunctioning air conditioning unit. The effort by Officers Cory Gonzales and Clement Gordon kept the leak from disrupting operations at a data center. After responding to an alarm, Officers Gonzales and Gordon shut down the defective Computer Room Air Conditioning (CRAC) unit and cleaned up gallons of water that leaked underneath the raised flooring. The two G4S Officers also made sure secondary CRAC units were started and worked properly in order to ensure continued operations.

Health Care Services Innovative G4S Partnership Supports Hospitals and Mental Health Patients Providing transportation, oversight and bedside guardianship with compassion, empathy and understanding for the special needs of mental health patients
G4S North Carolina Patient Support Staff G4S Capt. Baltazar Ruiz (standing) conducts training for a group of G4S employees.
Asheville, NC: Drug abuse or mental health patients in North Carolina are getting compassionate and appropriate support thanks to an innovative and award-winning program from G4S. The Patient Support Program provides oversight, safe transportation and bedside guardianship for patients who need to be transported from hospital emergencies departments and into appropriate mental health settings. This first-of-its-kind program is aimed at improving patient satisfaction, quality of care and reducing cost. “In these times of change in healthcare, particularly in mental health, this service is presenting an option to free-up bed space at hospital emergency departments and provide for quick and dignified transportation for the patient so they can get the specialized care they need,” said G4S General Manager Dallas Clark. The service is getting positive reviews from participating hospitals, law enforcement, mental health advocates and government agencies. In most places around the U.S., law enforcement officers and their vehicles are used for these patients,” said Ben Scaglione, Director of G4S Healthcare services. “The North Carolina system is a valuable and
innovative solution which focuses on the dignity of the patient because a person in crisis transported or watched by law enforcement can contribute to their traumatic event rather than de-escalating it.” Since the beginning of this specialized service in November 2013, a team of 25+ G4S Patient Support Staff members have assisted more than 2,500 patients and driven over 128,000 miles without incident. The program was designed with input from healthcare and mental health groups, the NC Sheriff’s Association and the North Carolina Attorney General’s Office. G4S Patient Support Staff members receive special training because they provide bedside guardianship or transportation to a patient in crisis. This training includes 100+ hours of G4S classroom training in First Aid/AED; hospital and healthcare procedures; and driver and safety responsibilities. All Patient Support Staff members are also required to receive special CIT certification. The G4S program utilizes vehicles are specially equipped with safe and secure passenger seating, individually- sealed lockers for personal belongings and protection of medical papers. The cars have two-way dispatching communications and always-on GPS units that record time, speed and location.
What is CIT Certification? All members of the special G4S team receive special training and certification from the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) –a regional North Carolina group that facilitates collaboration between first responders and the mental health community advocates. CIT training and certification is designed to assist officers with information, understanding and skills to use when they respond to incidents involving people experiencing a crisis.

Heroes, Continued G4S Officer Uses Life-Saving Training as First Responder During Emergency Portland, OR: A G4S Officer is being honored for his professional response and quick thinking during an emergency at a mass transit area near a college football stadium. While directing traffic and assisting football fans, Security Office Jason Cross saw a spectator who collapsed on the sidewalk. Officer Cross rushed to render aid and after determining the man was unconscious, not breathing with a weak and fading pulse, Officer Cross used his training and experience and started chest compressions. Officer Cross also calmly commanded the scene while delegating tasks to others as he continued life saving actions until rescue personnel arrived.
“I was very impressed with the willingness of Officer Cross to jump in and help when needed.” –G4S Client
“I am proud to work with him and all of our hardworking Security Officers who strive to do a job well done in such a diverse work atmosphere.” – Ronald Bjerklund, G4S Secure Solutions, Area Supervisor

My name is Rachelle and I am a bank teller in Tennessee. Up until October of 2013, we did not have a guard. Our bank was a robbed so, the company appointed bank security. Now, I am so secure knowing that there are people here keeping an eye on things. In particular, I wanted to write about G4S Officers Mr. James Alexander and Miss Karen Johnson. They both are outstanding and exceptional guards. They light up my day every time I see them because I know I will feel safe and protected throughout the day. Not only do they watch the bank and its surroundings but they make sure we get to our car safely. They will even wait with us until our car ride arrives. They are very professional in their craft. I would like to let the company know they are doing an exceptional job.

Comments: I want to commend one of your security guards who works at a supermarket in Honolulu. When I started shopping, I noticed someone had taken the three insulated bags I use for carrying my groceries home. The security guard approached me just to smile and offer a 'good morning', and I told her what had happened. She alerted the checkout clerks and searched the store while I continued shopping. She found them out of sight by the checkout, and tracked me down. Just want to convey that she was professional, vigilant and very polite! If this is the norm for the employees of your company, kudos to you! Please pass my appreciation on to her! Shannon L.
At lunchtime today we were greeted by one of your security team members at the Orange County courthouse annex. She could not have been more helpful to us or other patrons. She even took the time to talk to my 2 year old as we waited. Please pass on our thanks to this wonderful member of your team.
How are things?
It has occurred to me how lucky we are to have the two of you at our site in Billings. What you guys bring to our site is immeasurable and I want to be sure that you know how much I appreciate you! I appreciate the fact that you greet our guests the moment they come through the door. Your smiles and upbeat attitudes are the welcome that weary travelers appreciate. When you offer to help a visitor find their way to a conference room, the cafeteria, or an office you demonstrate the values that this business is built upon. You go above and beyond by offering things like cable locks for their laptops. Your professionalism is evident in every conversation. I just want you to know that I am glad you are here!
