Security and food service for the Florence Detention Center

ATSI provides detention guard, perimeter guard, checkpoint guard, training staff and food services in Florence, AZ under the authority of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

This is a secured facility in which all personnel entering the facility pass through a checkpoint manned by our employees. Florence is located in southern Arizona near the Mexican border and generally operates at a maximum operational capacity of 700 detainees. The status of the detainees at Florence Detention Center (FDC) ranges from individuals who have administrative detention orders for violation of immigration law to former convicted felons awaiting deportation back to their home countries.

ATSI’s operation at FDC is fully self-contained in that it successfully provides its own equipment, management, human resources, supplies and forms that pertain to the fulfillment of our contractual obligations.

ATSI is responsible for providing a safe, secure environment for detainees being held at the FDC facility. Personnel are highly trained by our organic training department and act as first responders to violent situations, medical emergencies and any other emergency situations that may arise at the facility.

Multi-functional facilities-support services at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort

ATSI provides services at the 6,900-acre Marine Corp Air Station in Beaufort, SC. The ATSI team performs base operations support services ranging from facility upkeep and repair to vehicle-maintenance services. While providing these services, ATSI helps ensure that more than 700 Marines and sailors, and their component squadrons and tenant units, are readily deployable.

ATSI continues to support new and expanding operations at Beaufort. For example, ATSI helps support the Navy with the first dedicated F-35B pilot training center. In 2014, the Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron 501 relocated to MCAS Beaufort from Eglin Air Force Base, FL, to train pilots for the first operational F-35 squadron and the Marines’ military-instructor cadre. Serving as the hub for F-35B pilot training, MCAS Beaufort will also host international pilots flying the short takeoff and vertical landing F-35 variant.
