May be on my way out. What I did via the anonymous call was not entirely untraceable as I had to ask someone to give me that guys number. Had my 'counseling' over the workplace injury upgraded to a full write- up. Turns out the liaison has not been fired, and I was written up again for participating in gossip because I tried to find out who we call in her place in case of emergency. One more and Im out. Had to fill out witness statement on the origin of the rumor (which for the post was another guard). I then informed him of my wish to change shifts, and he asked why. Told him there were too many shenanigans on third shift and I wanted out before I got anymore caught up in them. He got an "oh shit" expression on his face and told me to sit back down. So I told him everything. And I mean everything. Some of it he seemed genuinely shocked about, and some of it I'm pretty sure he's bullshitting about not knowing (the anonymous call for example). He took copious notes, and informed HR who has supposedly had a hissy fit. I am told he has a meeting with her tomorrow, and I will be asked to fill out more statements. I worry that he may have thrown me under the bus. This morning he was shocked and needed a cigarette and dreading this call. When I called back this afternoon, he was smarmy and flattering.
How does this sound for a statement:
RE: Multiple violations of company policy
On 8/29/2017, I, Officer x, attest the following to be true:
Both Officer D and Officer B have committed multiple infractions, which I have been told to keep my mouth shut about, because they had the tacit approval of my Shift or Site Supervisor. It is for that reason that it has taken me this long to come forward, because if they truly did have the okay of management, then my job and/or safety would be in jeopardy. But their violations have now become so common and numerous that it puts the company's contract at risk, and the stress it is causing me is no longer manageable. Particularly since their violations are becoming visible to the clients employees.
On 4/20/2017 the guard Shack was approached by a young girl who was a S-- employee towards the end of shift.. She claimed she had gotten sick and had permission to leave early, but her ride home could only be contacted via Facebook. Officer D said she could stay in the guard shack until she could contact her ride. At the time I told him this was not a wise idea, and it could lead to disciplinary action, but was told he had former Officer P's okay. Officer P was the Shift Supervisor at that time. She was in the post several hours until end of shift, when Officer D told her to hide in his car. Officer D made multiple attempts to flirt with her, and has stated on numerous occasions that he has done so with various client employees over the months because “he needs to get laid.” I was then told, as I had been previously told by Officer D, that “snitches get stitches” and that “payback was mandatory.” He said that the first night I worked with him, along with some veiled threats when Officer P asked me how he was coming along, and I gave my honest assessment that he needed to stop interrupting the clients employees at work to flirt with them.
On 06/16/2017 I returned from rounds to find a woman in the post with Officer D again. He claimed she was his new girlfriend, and that she was a local Donato's manager. I asked if she was there to deliver food. He said that's the reason he'd be giving if they were caught, but not to worry because he had Officer P's approval “so long as you don't do it in front of anyone who will tell R.” He also stated this was not the only woman he had invited to post. At best guess she was there from roughly 11:30 PM to 12:30 am. I can only guess as she was present when I arrived back from doing rounds, and was still there when I left for rounds again (she was gone when I had returned a second time).
A month or so later Officer D had a new girlfriend which he also had on post. He has always done ALP rounds without the necessary hat and safety glasses, so he could wear a headset plugged into his phone to talk with said girlfriend, who believes he was cheating on her with a current or former guard. At times they have talked on the phone for the majority of his shift. Once again, he stated he had Officer P's permission to do so, and Officer P's behavior had altered so much by this point I actually believed him.
When Officer L took a position at post, Officer D attempted to have a relationship with her, and she had stated to me Officer B did as well. Eventually she chose Officer D, and has spent the evening in post with him multiple times, sometimes for as much as 6 hours. Even after being terminated from the company. Officers L, B and D have all three stated to me an incident in which they were having a three way conversation via phone while Officer D was on ALP. At some point Officer D did not realize a member of the clients HR staff was near when he uttered the phrase “Just tell her to lick his balls, and he'll quit fuckin' whining.” This was stated to me on 08/11/2017 as having happened earlier in the month. He was admonished by the clients employee, which is the third time he has been approached by a client employee. The other two times Officer D stated to me were a different client employee who warned him of walking through the factory with his headphones on because it was a safety violation. This was stated to me on 08/19/2017, and I was told the client employee was a team lead, as Officer D looked him up with the associate information database to try to find information on him. Officer D stated the employee was his “enemy.”
Before this time Officer D had stated that his behavior was approved by Officer E, or at least Officer E was willing to turn a blind eye as long as Officer D didn't do anything putting the contract at risk. There was a rumor first stated to me by Officer R that Officer D was in line to be promoted to a 3rd Shift Lead, while Officer H was to become 1st Shift Lead. When she directly asked Officer D he 'confirmed' these rumors, and has been using this as a means of gaining silence over his actions, or to pressure people. He has also stated that Officer E hates being called at night on 3rd shift, and that we could instead call him for advice because he would be in charge of 3rd shift soon.
Recently Officer D has been working a great deal of overtime, and has stated on numerous occasions (particularly within the past two weeks) that he wasn't “doing anything he didn't have to” that evening, and has falsified his log sheet numerous times to reflect rounds he has not done (he has been joined in this behavior by Officer B). The last two evenings I have worked with Officer D he has fallen asleep in his chair briefly, and he stated overtime and lack of sleep was the cause. The only rounds you can actually verify as being done are the ones in which he has scanned the dot tags. If either he or Officer B did not scan the dot tags in that round, there is a possibility that round was not done. And since we only have one phone capable of scanning the dots for 3 people, and that phone must be charged the first hour of shift, there are many rounds where scanning does not take place.
On 08/25/2017 (or 26, by now the violations have become so common I have given up cataloguing them) Officer D was a minute late, which Officer De and Officer R pounced on. At this time I learned there was some sort of enmity between Officers Delaney and D as Officer De felt he was being harassed. That evening Officer D threatened to “put P through a wall or knock him the fuck out if he doesn't learn to keep his fucking mouth shut”. Officer D has since repeated these threats twice more, with Officer B agreeing because Officer De “shouldn't have snitched”. On or around this same night, former Officer L made another appearance on post stating she couldn't go home to face her mother, because she had just assaulted a local resident in self defense (she stated he struck her first), and that she had lied to the police when they arrived. She was in the post for 6 hours, and it became clear that she and Officer D were more than friends. It was at his time she stated to me she had chosen Officer D over Officer B, because Officer B had been scanning the women's rest rooms in violation of policy. She also stated that he had told her he was not only scanning the women's rest rooms, but stepping inside them to see if he could see a female employee in a state of undress. I did log onto Guard Tek on one occasion, and did notice he had scanned the female restrooms but cannot verify that he has actually set foot in one. I am not sure if I can trust former Officer Ls word, as she openly admitted lying to the police about the physical altercation she had just been in. I have sometimes had to push Officer B to do rounds initially when he was starting, as he did not want to leave the guard shack or stop texting on his phone. He does them without prodding now, but with Officer D's influence has begun falsifying his log sheets.
On 8/27/2017 former Officer L returned to post, and she and Officers D and B were chatting in post. Upon returning from Perimeter/Traffic Control I learned that a client employee had surprised them in the guard shack. They said he had stated his boss had received an anonymous call about some inappropriate behavior around the gate, and he had been sent to verify. He took Officer D's and Officer B's names, as well as the name of who they reported to (it was unsaid if they had actually told him they reported to Officer E or not). Former Officer L was told to leave the post, and the Officers were informed they would be getting watched by the client employee (“I'll be here all week.”). I then learned former Officer L had spent some part of second shift with Officer D as well (he was working a double shift). Officers D and B then spent most of the evening and part of the next evenings shift attempting to find the clients employee in the associate information database, or inside the factory, so that they could find out what they could about him, and determine which team lead or coordinator got the anonymous call. Officer D once again stated a need for retaliation. I pretended to play along with them to avoid said retaliation on my own person until I could decide what to do about this. They claimed to be texting with Officer H about this incident, and they claimed she stated that Officer E knew about this. While they were on phone texting someone, I cannot verify they were talking to Officer H, and when I revealed to Officer E what had happened, it became obvious he knew nothing of this, nor had he given them permission for anything.
I am coming forward because I no longer feel safe on post with Officers B and D. Particularly since Officer B drew a knife from his pocket on 08/28/2017 to open a can of Monster energy drink. I told Officer B we were not allowed weapons on post, and he stated he had used it in front of Officer E before, and had his tacit permission so long as he “wasn't stupid enough to use it in front of anyone who would snitch.” This was a red flag for me, because I know Officer E would not be foolish enough to allow weapons on post. The violations of policy are becoming to numerous to keep track of accurately, and are now actively beginning to interfere with my ability to get rounds done. Officer D has spread a culture of misinformation to Officer B and former Officer L, and it is my belief they will continue to promote and enforce this culture with new employees.
