Security Training

Answered by: 

Question: 
We perform security training at least annually to our bankers. We have separate loan production offices where mortgages are made. They don't participate in the training because they have no tellers, no vault, no cash. Are we OK with this?
Answer: 

I don't think so, and here is why. The regs tell you that training is required for officers and employees under your security program for conduct during and after a burglary, robbery, or larceny.

Some of these threats exist even at an LPO. Also, employees from the LPO likely come to the bank frequently and for extended times for training, meetings, etc. If one of these LPO employees was injured at the bank or at their own office, why should they be less trained and prepared than other employees to deal with the situation? If one of your officers at the LPO was taken hostage at home as a part of a bank robbery, should they be less trained? If the bank is sued by one of these employees after a tragic event, how would you respond to your question?
