Psychologist, Dr Carol Nudelman, said she didn’t evaluate Orlando shooter Omar Mateen for his position at security firm G4S in 2007. G4S officials called the discrepancy a ‘clerical error’ and said Mateen had been evaluated, but by a different psychologist. DailyMail
Did G4S falsify the records and skimp on the psych-evaluation and perhaps background checks to save money? G4S hired Omar Mateen who was ‘involuntarily dismissed‘ from a prison corrections officer training program in 2007.
A doctor who is listed on the psychological evaluation for Orlando shooter, Omar Mateen, said she did not see him and she was not even living in Florida at the time when G4S security firm ordered the evaluation.
Psychologist, Dr Carol Nudelman, who now lives in Colorado, said in a statement released through her attorneys to the Miami Herald that she never evaluated Mateen nine years ago for G4S, a security firm that was known as Wackenhut at the time.
However, Nudelman’s name appears on the document in Florida’s state records, which cleared Mateen to carry a firearm as a private security guard. DailyMail
Omar Mateen worked with private security group G4S Secure Solutions as a private security officer in Florida.
The role requires 28 hours of classroom training by a licensed instructor. Officials said he had two firearms licenses, a security officer license and a statewide firearms license, all expiring in September 2017.

We can confirm that Omar Mateen had been employed with G4S since Sept 10 2007. We are cooperating fully with all law enforcement authorities, including the FBI, as they conduct their investigation.
