30.02 POLICY

      A.  The   general   security   of  the  Station  shall  be  the
          responsibility of the on-duty Officer-In-Charge  and  shall
          be carried out by his/her designee or the Dispatcher.
      B.  By  2100  hours  all doors (front, back, and side) shall be
      C.  By  1800  hours  the keys to all department vehicles parked
          outside shall be brought in  and  said  vehicles  shall  be
      D.  After   2100   hours,   Officers-In-Charge   shall  provide
          personnel to secure  stations.   This  means  that  when  a
          company  responds  to  a call, the doors will be closed and
          upon the company's return, the doors are  opened  to  allow
          personnel  back  into  the building.  Station security will
          not be jeopardized because of the lateness of the hour.
