Kevin Devlin, a Lt. with the Wackenhut Corp., and assigned at West Point as part of the civilian security force, replacing the Military Police for        active duty elsewhere, gave an interesting breakdown of duties entrusted to Wackenhut. When coming on post, especially without photo I.D., security persons at the gates will challenge you. If all is o.k. you will be directed to proceed. If not, further investigation will occur, including the actions of the Provost Marshall’s detail, or the local police, if necessary. An interesting, Informative Program!   

Phil Brillante’s weekly safety tip concerned protecting your eyes during the summer months when doing gardening and other chores while at home. He advised the use of protective glasses called P.P.E., when cutting grass, etc. They will prevent small stones from striking you in the eyes.
