Former Buffalo Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda has taken a job with a Florida-based private security company.
Derenda has been hired as the new general manager for G4S Secure Solutions' Buffalo office, located on Delaware Avenue downtown. The company said in a statement that Derenda will oversee customer relationships, sales and operational activity in the Buffalo area.
“Daniel is a great addition to our G4S team,” said Richard Amoroso, Senior Vice President, Northeast Region for G4S. “His commitment to professionalism, as well as his exceptional operational and management experience, are a recipe for success in the Buffalo area. Daniel is an excellent leader and we believe our G4S Security Officers, staff and customers in the Buffalo area will benefit for years to come.”
G4S happens to provide security for Buffalo's City Hall, among other clients.
Derenda, 58, retired suddenly last week and, according to state calculations, will be eligible for $90,000 per year in pension benefits, due to his age and his 32 years experience with the Buffalo Police Department.
