Maria Taylor, Jailer, Beverly Hills, California
Maria was born in Mexico, but spent the majority of her life in Los Angeles, California. She has a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice from California State University.
Maria worked as a sales associate in the retail industry, but always felt her job was not leading to a career. She heard about G4S through a friend and started working for G4S in 2010 as a Custom Protection Officer.
Her first assignment was at a large office building in the Los Angeles area. In that role, Maria patrolled the facility and reported unusual activity. She was also involved in a special assignment where she had to escort television personalities during their visit to the area.
In 2011, Maria applied for a special assignment with the Beverly Hills Police Detention facility under G4S. As a Jailer, Maria is responsible for inspecting and processing detainees entering the facility.
“I like working for G4S because there are a lot of opportunities to grow with the company … there are so many interesting assignments in the area, you can gain a lot of experience here,” Maria said.
