A bank in Liberty Lake takes their security so serious that they even call 9-1-1 on the police. Last Friday a police officer who was performing a common bank security check was reported to 9-1-1 as a suspicious person by the Assistant Manager.
According to a sheriff’s deparment spokesman, these security checks help familiarize law enforcement with the layout of the bank.
In this case however employees; or I would venture to assume one particular employee became suspicious after the officer began asking about the number of employees, the vault location, and general questions about the bank’s operations.
Who wouldn’t be suspicious of questions like that? Seriously if I had someone in my bank asking me security sensitive questions I would be a little wigged out too.
In this instance however the person asking the questions was in UNIFORM and driving a marked POLICE CAR. The Assistant Manager did as she had been trained to do, this was her shining moment, maybe even a Kudos entry in the bank newsletter, and she leapt to duty.
Distracted by the obvious, the Assistant Manager (now the Assistant to the Assistant Manager) called 9-1-1 and reported a “suspicious person” and even described him as wearing a police uniform and driving a marked police vehicle….
Somewhere in this story there is a blonde joke
