Private Council Security Guard

Recommended Posts

I was visiting my local Scout Shop today, and I noticed my council now has a security guard. As I was leaving, I saw the guard heckling a volunteer in the lobby about why they were there.  I saw another Scouter I knew watching from the other side of the lobby. I asked that Scouter if he knew anything about the new security, and he said he didn't know anything about it. He recalled seeing the guard at the council banquet watching the doors but had no idea otherwise about why we have one.

I'll make my opinion clear. I don't think our council has the need or can justify the cost of a security guard. Our Scout Shop and service center are not in a bad part of town. We're next to a decent sized bank and an IT company, and across the street from a gated apartment complex. More importantly though, I can't support a council that has employees, contracted or not, harassing the people who put on their program.

Sounds pretty weird.  Makes me wonder if something happened that resulted in it.

Given the tight budgets, can't imagine they're doing it on a whim.

Somebody got kicked by a mule I guess.  After all, it is Missouri it seems.

The SE would also like to be informed if any council employees are treating costomers badly.
