RESTON, Va., Aug. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Triple Canopy, Inc., a Constellis Group company and a leading provider of security and support services worldwide, has been awarded a $47.8 million contract by Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Federal Protective Services (FPS) to provide protective security services throughout the state of Oklahoma.
Triple Canopy will employ 135 protective security officers who will provide access control, x-ray screening, vehicle access control, and mobile and foot patrols at more than 40 federally-owned and leased facilities, primarily in Tulsa and Oklahoma City. The period of performance is for one base year with four option years.
"Triple Canopy has proudly served the U.S. government since 2004, securing critical national interests around the globe," said Mo Mulligan, Triple Canopy's president. "This award is another important step in expanding our domestic security offerings. We look forward to growing our relationship with DHS as we become the preeminent provider of innovative, high-quality security programs throughout the United States."
The award adds to Triple Canopy's growing domestic security portfolio. In March, DHS awarded Triple Canopy an FPS subcontract to provide armed security services at 26 federal buildings and locations throughout Northern New Jersey.
The company also recently received an award to provide subject matter experts to the Northern California Fusion Center. These security experts will provide the technical and analytical support needed to assist in program development and maintenance for the Northern California First Responder Terrorism Liaison Officer Program.
Founded by former U.S. Army Special Forces personnel in 2003, Triple Canopy's domestic and overseas security offering includes uniformed and high threat protection services for federal, state, and local governments, non-governmental organizations, and multinational commercial clients.
