Livermore Lab downsizing its security

Anonymously contributed: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Livermore Lab downsizing its security Modesto Bee Staff Reports Tuesday, Sep. 25, 2012 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- LIVERMORE -- Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is downsizing its security staff now that the last of the highest-level special nuclear material has been removed from the research center. The lab filed a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Act reduction in force notice this month, which reported that 126 employees were being let go as a result of the changes. The layoffs will only affect members of the lab's security work force who are no longer needed or funded because of the center's nuclear status changes. Those include police officers, police sergeants and health-safety technologists. The first voluntary separations will take place this month and the final involuntary separations will occur by March. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ http://www.modbee.com/2012/09/25/2389668/lab-downsizing-its-security.html#storylink=cpy

I hope all these people find job in California but my bets they're going to have to move out of state. That may be a good thing.I wish all of them well.

downsizing a security force for a nuclear lab.. that should not be published. Why not post some flyers in Libya and Iran as well, just to be sure everyone knows there will be less security here.

What next, will they announce the guard changing times and staff levels per hour?

So without significant quantities of Cat I/II SNM can you really still consider LLNL a "nuclear lab"? Or is it now just a physics/science lab with a national security "think-tank" mission.

There's probably more SNM at some of the DOE science labs and university's with training/research reactors than LLNL these days.

Let's wish these folks well. They accomplished the assigned mission (protection of SNM at LLNL). NNSA has been working for years to consolidate, just to realize the savings represented by this RIF (and others like it). This is a good thing for taxpayers, but unfortunately not such a good thing for these particular people. I say thanks & well-done and wish them all good luck in future endeavors.

"Downsizing a security force for a nuclear lab.. that should not be published."

I don't think you have much to worry about bubba since there's absolutely nothing left at LLNL requiring protection unless you're talking about the work force. Understanding a terrorist mission is to inflict mass causalities I don't think any security force is going to stop them if they’re determined to take out a target. 9-11 proved that. Regardless these people need job and the best way to let the public know they’re for hire is to post their availability. Nothing on this blog is any different than what has appeared in the local newspaper’s which is where the verbiage of the original post came from. If you want to talk about information that was and is detrimental to the United States let’s talk about what was disclosed on national TV by some un-named jackrabbit such as the team involved in taking out Osama Bin laden, divulging the content of what was obtained during the raid, giving them time to evacuate and unable to be found and then telling the Iranians we planted a virus in their network to obstruct their uranium enrichment process. Who was that? There’s nothing on this blog that could do any harm compared to that fiasco.

Whining has become so common here it sounds just like a public sector union. Oh wait, it is.
