The Federal Protective Service (FPS) of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) created security guidelines that the Social Security Administration (SSA) adhered to. In general, FPS policy permits armed Federal, State, and local law enforcement officials to enter Federal buildings while carrying out their duties. State and local police officers are not permitted to bring guns inside Federal buildings while on official business,

Sheriff’s Incident

According to what we understand, the sheriff’s deputy attended a nearby Social Security office to do personal business rather than official duty.

Sheriff Alan Norman claims that a deputy from Cleveland County was instructed to put down his weapon before entering the Shelby Social Security office.

The office is located in the 700 block of Schenck Street, close to East Grover Street. According to Norman, the deputy went by the premises to “conduct business” while he was working and clearly presented himself as an officer.

The sheriff went on to say that a worker instructed the deputy to leave the facility, adding that their management had instructed all staff to request that police enforcement leave and to return only when unarmed.

A uniformed law enforcement officer would be in danger if they followed that order, Norman stated in a Facebook post. It would jeopardize their security, particularly given the perilous times we’re in.

Additionally, according to Norman, the management instructed his staff to contact 911 and report if an officer had entered the facility. This situation did not include a 911 call.

Norman said he learned that is not the official Social Security Administration policy after contacting with other sheriff’s departments in North Carolina.

Additionally, according to SSA representatives, staff members were not told to dial 911 in such circumstances.

“I feel that you, as citizens and taxpayers, need to know how the manager of the Social Security Office in Shelby feels about law enforcement,” Norman remarked.

How Does Social Security Work?

Social Security operates through a system of contributions and benefits. When you work and earn income, a portion of your earnings is withheld to fund the Social Security program. This withheld money goes into a trust fund, which is then used to provide benefits to those who qualify.

When you reach a certain age (more on that later) or encounter a qualifying life event, you can start receiving Social Security benefits. The amount you receive is based on your work history and earnings, and it’s intended to help cover your basic living expenses when you’re no longer able to work.

Understanding how it works and planning for it is crucial for a stable and worry-free retirement.
