AlliedBarton Security Services Partners With Los Angeles Mayor's Office of Veterans Affairs on Military Hiring "10,000 Strong Initiative"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2014) - AlliedBarton Security Services,, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, announces its partnership and pledge to the Mayor's Office of Veterans Affairs that 10% of all new employees hired in Los Angeles will be military veterans.

"I'm proud to announce that AlliedBarton is fully committed to ensuring that at least 10% of all new employees hired are military veterans," said Mayor Eric Garcetti, who established the Mayor's Office of Veterans Affairs to ensure that veterans in Los Angeles can access the services they've earned. "As America's leading physical security services company, which already has an award-winning, active military veteran employment program in place, AlliedBarton will help put many Angeleno veterans back to work, benefiting our families, neighborhoods and economy."

In June 2014, Mayor Garcetti announced a regional veterans hiring initiative called "10,000 Strong" aimed at getting 10,000 veterans jobs by 2017. The initiative brings together over 100 companies and 40 non-profit and public-sector partners to offer supportive services or jobs for veterans.

"As the war in Afghanistan is winding down, thousands of veterans are returning to Los Angeles who are seeking to transition back into the civilian workforce," said Mike Smidt, AlliedBarton Vice President/General Manager. "AlliedBarton is committed to hiring veterans, reservists, their families and caregivers, and promoting this important hiring practice. Our company-wide military hiring program, Hire Our Heroes, is an essential part of our recruiting strategy. We are proud to partner with the Mayor's office to hire Angeleno veterans and challenge other local businesses to join this important initiative." 

AlliedBarton, which hired more than 5,000 veterans in 2013, was recently honored as a U.S. Veterans Magazine Best of the Best Top Veteran-Friendly Company for the second consecutive year.
