Reasonable security for employees

All people entering the Postal Square Building must pass through rigorous security that is disproportionate to the activities inside the building. There are five security points with metal detectors ex-ray machines, staffed by two security guards. They inspect employees and visitors of the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Postal Museum. Agencies similar to BLS and museums similar to the Postal Museum do not have the same security screenings. Employees with badges should not have to pass through security, and visitors to the museum could have their bags visually inspected by a single security guard. BLS visitors could be handled by one security point at the only visitor entrance. This would eliminate 4 security points (and the need for 7 guards) and would certainly save much money.
