The existing security force at the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge will stay on the job, but under new leadership.
Last week, the Department of Energy decided to terminate its security contract with WSI.
Monday, WSI confirmed their police force would continue work under the management of Y-12 operators and B&W.
In a statement, they said:
Protective force functions at the Y-12 National Security Complex will be transferred to B&W following a termination of convenience of WSI Oak Ridge's contract. We expect the transition period to be conducted in an efficient manner by all parties involved over the next several weeks.
WSI Oak Ridge will continue to assist however necessary, for as long as necessary, to ensure a safe and secure transition. Both parties have agreed that in the interest of Y-12 we will work together to secure opportunities for support personnel.
WSI has enjoyed supporting NNSA, B&W and the Oak Ridge community at large over our past decade of protective force support to the Y-12 National Security Complex.
The DOE warned WSI in August that it could terminate its contract following a security breach by three protesters who vandalized a building in late July.
WSI will continue to help in the security transition at Y-12.
