“I’m absolutely ecstatic to step into the role of President at P4. This is an opportunity that represents much more than a position—it’s a chance to lead the charge in the next wave of security advancements for the industry, to encompass exceptional talent, cutting-edge technology, and innovative strategies,” Vitale said. “I’m thrilled to lead our team of 1,200 frontline off-duty police and security officers as we embark on this important mission. And our focus isn’t on Chicago alone; we will make a significant national impact in the world of security. With our brilliant team by my side, we’re on a path to redefine what success means for the entire industry.”
