7,000 Veterans Hired in 2016

I am pleased to announce that 2016 was another active year for veteran recruitment, with 7,000 veterans hired across Securitas' North American operations. By the end of the year, about 15,000 veterans called Securitas home. Military veterans bring important and complementary skill sets to our company. Securitas is committed to hiring them as part of our organizational development. I'd like to thank these former military men and women for their service, first to their country and now to Securitas and our clients. While some may join us and transition to other opportunities, many stay and build careers with us. We're proud to welcome all of them and appreciate their time with us. I look forward to seeing their many contributions and encourage everyone to remember this talented resource as an option for staffing available positions.

Thank you,

Securitas is proud to be a member of the Veteran Jobs Mission

We’ve been a member of this private-sector collation since 2012, formally known as 100,000 Jobs Mission. Their original goal was to hire 100,000 U.S. military veterans by 2020.  Because the collation has far surpassed that goal, they have changed their name and set their goal to collectively hire a total of one million military veterans—with a strong focus on retention and career development of veterans in the private sector.

Veterans Working for Securitas

Jeffrey Jones is a branch manager for the Mid-Atlantic region working in the Toledo, OH office. He has worked for Securitas USA since 1997. He was a member of the Ohio Army National Guard from 1985-1991 and 1994- 2008, serving in the 323rd Military Police Company, Toledo, OH. 

Jones explained that his military career has aided his civilian career in many ways. “First, as a military police officer I was taught many skills such as interpersonal communications, report writing, and patrol techniques which help me to assist our employees in their understandingof their duties. Next, being in the military with so many people with diverse backgrounds has helped me to develop empathy and understanding of various socio-economic situations.”

The military gave Jones the opportunity to receive a higher education by earning an Associate Degree in Law Enforcement and a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Toledo. “In my job I use the skills I learned in college, such as business writing, financial calculations, and law applications.”
