Safety for Lock Boxes (February 22, 2017)
Police deparments wants accessibility to lock boxes in case of emergencies. However, businesses claim accountability to the keys. This being said, an example was brought up by one of the policeman by simply saying this: if a person had a health issue and needed to get back in the building, the police can assist them into getting access. The main priority behind all this is public safety.
The government is now handling this issue by having Rich Heidel give a legal opinion and making sure it covers both police and fire departments for emergencies. The government is also making sure everyone is informed by giving letters to businesses in case of issues with the policy.
I agree with how the government is facing the issue. They are informing everyone and making sure everything is clear. As well as they are deciding to give access to the keys for the police department.
My solution for the issue is by agreeing with the government and giving access to the police department. I think it's important to note that the police are responsible for safety. By giving them accessibility, it strengthens the responsibility and can prevent tough situations. I think there should be only a few amount of people in the police department, who are trustworthy and responsible, to have the keys in their possession. Therefore, if the businesses are concerned about power over the lock boxes, there will be limits to the police department. This could make accessibility more safer.
