G4S wins security contract with Bank of America Merrill Lynch

G4SG4S, the world’s leading global security and outsourcing group, has won the contract to provide security solutions to Bank of America Merrill Lynch operations in the United Kingdom.

From December this year, the three year contract will see over 200 officers from G4S Secure Solutions (UK) secure six key sites for the Bank in a move that will form one of the company’s largest commercial UK contracts. Under the contract, G4S employees will provide reception security; access control; patrolling; administration; CCTV operation and systems, intelligence and risk management at the six sites across the UK and Ireland, including its headquarters at King Edward Street, London.

‘G4S’ contract with Bank of America is another addition to the growing partnership between the two companies. G4S currently provides security solutions to over 3,000 Bank of America branches across the United States and facilities across the world.’

The deal will also see G4S provide sophisticated technology-based security solutions to the Bank, including handheld devices for G4S officers providing intelligence, reporting and monitoring. Technology-enabled operations will include reporting procedures harmonised between the UK and the US leading to a single global standard for the Bank.

Doug Hewitson, Group Managing Director at G4S Secure Solutions, said: “This is a key strategic contract win for G4S in the UK and Ireland and our officers will hit the ground running with the provision of industry-leading security solutions to Bank of America. Building on our ethos of partnership working, we look forward to commencing the contract later this year which includes the delivery of technology-enabled officers as part of our complex security offering.”
