5 LANL Security Force Employees Fired

Nov 26, 2012

Five members of the Los Alamos National Laboratory security force have been fired for an improper use of a live fire shooting range.

Los Alamos Monitor reports (http://bit.ly/UPMx7N) that the five employees of the lab security force, known as Securing Our Country, were fired last week for "inappropriate behavior" at Technical Area 72.

The lab said in a statement that the firings came after a preliminary inquiry.

However, lab officials declined to discuss the nature of the behavior that resulted in the firings.

The lab also did not release the names of the fired employees.
