Field office managers should periodically review their office security action plan
and update it as necessary. Ensure that all field office employees are aware of their
office security plan. Work with Regional Security staff to consider whether additional
security measures, such as alarms, security guards, or closed circuit televisions
When a person in N25 status visits the field office, the field office manager may
use his or her discretion in alerting the local law enforcement official and/or the
Federal Protective Service to the possible need for additional security.
When arranging for additional security in connection with a visit from someone identified
as a fugitive felon or a parole or probation violator, the field office manager may
release information or documents that would assist the Federal Protective Service
or local law enforcement authorities in furnishing such security. Examples of information
and documents are the name and photograph and/or physical description of the individual.
NOTE: If the contract guard is aware that a fugitive felon is in or coming to the field
office (FO), he or she is required by the Federal Protective Service (FPS) to inform
the FPS and/or local police. If the FPS is aware of a fugitive felon in or coming
to the FO, they are required by law to inform the local police and if possible come
to the office to aid in the arrest. If the local police are notified, they are required
by law to come to the office to make an arrest.
