Chicago, IL - Robert J. Tracy has joined United Service Companies as a senior vice president in its security group, United Security Services, Inc. 

Tracy, whose 30-year career includes command positions with the New York Police Department and global crisis management at Citigroup, most recently served as the Chief of Office of Crime Control Strategies for the Chicago Police Department. In this role, he worked under the guidance and supervision of then-superintendent Garry F. McCarthy. Tracy was able to reduce overall crime by 37% and helped achieve the lowest homicide rate since 1966. As Senior Vice President, Tracy will provide consulting services, assist in the company’s growth, and direct United Security’s global efforts. 

Additionally, former deputy commissioner of the New York Police Department and Chicago Superintendent Garry McCarthy will work exclusively with United on various industry-based projects through his new private-sector venture, GFM-Strategies.  

“Our continued ability to recruit top talent is a paramount to bringing the best service to each of our clients,” said Richard Simon. “Robert Tracy is a distinguished member of both the public law enforcement sector and the private corporate sector. His leadership, along with the ability to partner with Garry McCarthy and GFM-Strategies, gives us a significant advantage as we ramp up our next generation security at public facilities.”
