Google plans to put security officers for all of its Northern California offices on its payroll and part ways with the company that used to supply them.
Google will hire about 200 security officers at its Mountain View, Calif., headquarters, San Francisco office and at YouTube in San Bruno, Calif., the company said.
The jobs come with the same benefits as other Google employees.
Google already brought its security operations personnel, who perform a different function than the guards, onto its staff, said USA Today.
"Building an in-house security team is something we are excited to do," Google spokeswoman Meghan Casserly said in a statement. "A year ago we insourced the Google security operations center and we are looking forward to making these valued positions both full- and part-time Google employees."
