open access again? Debate on the security service in the Tölz district office


The access situation in the district office continues to drive the district committee. Again the question was whether the doors can be opened again and the security service can be abolished.

The access situation in the district office continues to drive the district committee.

Again the question was whether the doors can be opened again and the security service can be abolished.

Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen - The point was not on the agenda of the district committee, but caused the most heated debate.

Again, the question was how public traffic in the district office should be regulated in the future and whether a security service would still be needed for this.

The answer: It's complicated.

Appointments have “extremely proven themselves,” says the district administrator

The doors of the district office have been closed since the corona restrictions.

Admission is regulated by the security service.

And actually only those who have previously made an appointment should come.

All in all, "the appointment allocation has proven extremely effective and the efficiency has increased many times over," said District Administrator Josef Niedermaier (FW).

But that doesn't mean "that someone is sent away without an appointment".

CSU doubts that the security service is still needed

CSU faction leader Martin Bachhuber – he had raised the issue – was not satisfied with that.

"I welcome the fact that appointments are made, but in principle the district office should be a public building that citizens can visit." , according to Bachhuber.

Werner Weindl (CSU) added that the service was certainly justified during Corona.

"But it is now a surprise for some that it should be continued." After all, the district office had been open for decades.

The "need for security" of the employees has grown, says Niedermaier

District Administrator Josef Niedermaier reacted a little indignantly.

In November, the administration made a proposal as to how the reception could have been regulated in the future.

“But the district committee rejected the position necessary for this.” Running a completely open house may still be possible in small town halls, but no longer in the district office.

"We have a widespread building and simply need to know who is in the house."

By the way: Everything from the region is now also available in our regular Bad Tölz newsletter.

In addition, the "need for security" of the employees has grown, said Niedermaier, referring to "two deaths in offices in Germany".

There were also incidents in the Tölz authority, which he could not go into in detail publicly.

"But we have at least one police operation in the house every month." As a precaution, department head Wolfgang Krause also pointed out "that the district council does not decide whether we open the doors again".

That is the sole responsibility of the District Attorney.

The district committee wants to discuss the problem again internally

Michael Müller (CSU) objected that there was no security problem at the last meeting.

"It's a different situation." Barbara Schwendner (Greens) simply lacked more information to really be able to decide on the matter.

"I request that the topic be discussed again internally before decisions are made."

Conversion of the entrance area with access terminal

In order to create a basis for this, the head of the main office, René Beysel, once again explained the conversion plans for the entrance area.

This will be equipped with terminals.

Anyone who has booked an appointment online will be sent a QR code, which they scan at the terminal and can then go into the building and to their clerk.

"The code can also be used to send a checklist for the appointment or a room plan," says Beysel.

If you are too early, you can take a seat in a newly created waiting area.

Staff positions at reception would have to be increased - but the committee rejected this

Anyone who does not have an appointment will be admitted.

The staff at reception will take care of him first.

However, since there are also many telephone calls that have to be transferred and managed, the vehicle fleet has to be managed and many other things have to be done, the reception always has to be manned by two people.

In order to be able to compensate for vacation and sick leave, a total of 2.5 positions would be necessary, but the district committee had rejected the additional 1.15 positions requested for this in November.

"Our intention was to bring the security service back to the level it was three or four years ago," said Beysel.

However, this would have required an increase in posts.

Like Barbara Schwendner, Bachhuber also suggested discussing the concept internally again.

The costs for conversion and additional personnel would have to be compared with the expenses for the security service.

Until then, the 160,000 euros will remain in the budget.
