We've got a similar policy here but everyone from this area is too polite to actually confront someone who tries to follow behind them without an ID. Makes security a nightmare.

I've only done so myself once and that was about 30 minutes before the building was open for business. We've got a decent amount of homeless around where I work and some guy was standing near-ish to the front door. When I stepped through he tried to quickly follow without me noticing. Come on. It is still dark out, you were trying to not draw attention when I walked up, and tried to sneak in behind me? Even without coffee I'm going to notice you!

So I spun around and confronted him asked to see his ID. Didn't have one however assured me that he worked in the building. So I asked some pretty general questions, who he worked with, what team, etc., and he couldn't answer any of them. After that I threatened to call the police if he didn't leave, etc. etc. and he kept saying he worked there but no other details.

Long story short, it was his second day there, hadn't been issued his ID badge yet, forgot his temp ID at home, didn't want to be late by going back to get it. If he had simply said "It is my second day and I forgot my ID." I would have handled the entire situation differently, but no... he chose to say "I don't have an ID". Also explained why he didn't know anything about who he reported to, what floor his desk was on, or anything else. D'Oh! | :doh:
