Virginia Commonwealth University is outsourcing more security work to the private company already providing mobile patrols on campus. The university contracted with G4S Secure Solutions in June to provide security in academic buildings, which previously was handled by 40 staff members working for the VCU Police Department. The VCU Police employees were given the opportunity to apply for the G4S positions, and 21 have been hired, said Corey Byers, public information officer for the campus police.
