SOC Los Alamos, the company that provides uniformed protective force services to Los Alamos National Laboratory, is executing workforce restructuring as a result of a reduction in funding, according to a company e-mail forwarded by SOC General Manager Ken Freeman.  

There will be up to 18 positions affected.

SOC is working to transition through this by encouraging individuals to apply for voluntary separation to minimize any involuntary separations.

The workforce restructure is expected to be completed by Sep 30.

SOC Los Alamos is located at Technical Area 64, Building 1, on Pajarito Road.

Day & Zimmermann, PTLA’s parent company, announced that several of its government-services businesses combined with Special Operations Consulting-Security Management Group (SOC-SMG), a global leader in full-service security management, to form SOC LLC in January 2008.

The new company, which is headquartered in Minden, Nev., combines SOC-SMG and its training arm, HD-SOC, with Day & Zimmermann’s Government Security, Federal Services and Hawthorne business units.

Day & Zimmermann provides armed and unarmed security guard forces for the Department of Energy (DOE), at Los Alamos National Laboratory – and to the Department of Defense (DOD) at several government-owned/contractor operated installations.
