Selected members of the G4S CPO program will be available to meet and greet Expo attendees at G4S Booth #724

G4S Secure Solutions will honor members of its award-winning Custom Protection Officer® (CPO) program at the ASIS International 59th Annual Seminar and Exhibits, Sept. 24-27, at McCormick Place in Chicago. Selected members of the G4S CPO program will be available to meet and greet Expo attendees at G4S Booth #724 and explain how their backgrounds and training combine to make the members of the finest security force in the industry.

The G4S CPO Division attracts the most qualified professionals in the security industry. They are recruited through a highly selective process and then receive classroom-based training through the G4S North America Training Institute (NATI). NATI is the industry’s only accredited corporate university for security officers.

All G4S CPOs must meet stringent experience requirements and possess leadership skills. A CPO must:

  •     Be a former law enforcement or corrections officer,
  •     Be former career military having served in the military elite forces or military police,
  •     Be a former federal agency officer,
  •     Be a police academy graduate, or
  •     Hold a degree from an accredited college or university with a concentration in criminal justice, police science, or security administration.

“The G4S Custom Protection Officer personnel are the best in the security industry because we only recruit from a select group,” said Drew Levine, President G4S Secure Solutions (USA). “It’s part of our commitment to enhancing customer satisfaction and developing career advancement opportunities with our finest security personnel.”

G4S carefully screens CPO officer candidates. Those G4S officers who meet the rigorous requirements of the position then receive a minimum of 40 hours of classroom instructor-led training administered through the G4S North America Training Institute.

“Training from our G4S North America Training Institute (NATI) goes well beyond all industry standards,” said Geoff Gerks, Senior Vice President, Corporate Human Resources, G4S Secure Solutions (USA). “NATI offers a comprehensive, instructor-led classroom learning experience where all officers learn about security standards and practices.”

In addition to classroom training, all G4S employees have access to additional online training and career advancement programs via the G4S Learning Management System at Myg4sTraining.com.
