PRMC Making Changes to its Security Force

SALISBURY, Md.- Changes are once again coming to the security force at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury.

The hospital recently brought in an outside security company named Securitas for campus security. However, that contract has since been terminated. The change comes as the hospital has begun the process of training its entire security force to become special police officers.

Under Maryland law, special police officers must be employed directly by the company they are protecting. That means could not be employed by an outside company like Securitas.

PRMC officials said Monday the hospital and Securitas have mutually agreed to terminate the recent contract between the two.

Officials said advanced training is being provided to all of the security officers at the hospital. So once again, all of the security staff protecting PRMC are employees of the hospital.

Prior to the change that took place to the third-party security force, the hospital said current security officers could apply with the new company.

Under the leadership of Security Director James "Bo" Kennedy and with the assistance of Pinkerton Security Services, advanced training is being provided to all officers. Officials said it is anticipated that each will soon become certified as special police officers.
