Hunting For Thieves

Well, the search is on. Something turned up missing that was a big deal and now management and John are on the hunt. John takes his job pretty seriously. If he catches whoever is behind the rash of petty thefts there’s gonna be hell to pay.

Working here is like serving two masters. You have to answer to your immediate boss and you are responsible to the company, but you are also responsible to the Government in some ways. You have to always be aware of it anyway. At a regular job if you get fired for stealing something you can pretty much just go out to get another job and no one will be the wiser of your crimes. When you’re working in a classified environment though it’s a whole different ball game. Let’s say you get fired for stealing a wrench and you work for a defense contractor in a classified area. Not only do you lose your job, but the company then turns over the information to the Government. Now you’re facing being barred from ever having a security clearance again, and the Defense Investigative Service (DIS) might hit you with even more criminal charges. Having a DoD security clearance is like having money in the bank. It can help you get jobs elsewhere in the industry. So if you lose that, you’re screwed from doing Government work in the future.

John and I were talking about some of this the other afternoon and his take on the situation is that there’s a bunch of spooky people working in Government agencies with three letter acronyms that you’ve never heard of. And when they show up to deal with an employee caught for theft or some other crime, it will not be pleasant.
