Pulse Security Service Fined

The security company that employed the gunman at Pulse nightclub in Orlando faces a $151,400 fine for falsely listing psychological testing data on forms that allowed employees to carry guns.

News outlets report the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services fined G4S Secure Solutions Sept. 9.

Investigators found the company listed the wrong psychologist’s name on more than 1,500 forms between 2006 and 2016.

One form belonged to Omar Mateen, the gunman in the June 12 massacre who was killed by police. The company had filed the September 2007 form to allow him to carry a gun as a security guard. Some 49 people were killed and 53 were injured at the venue.

Department rep Jennifer Meale said investigators determined the evaluations had been completed. In a statement, G4S said the wrong name was listed due to an administrative error.
