A security guard has been hired to work nights in Kensington's Astoria Federal Savings at Church and McDonald. He's stationed in the vestibule, where the bank's ATMs are located. The guard began his job on Monday. 

He reports that Astoria now has a guard twenty-four hours a day--part of the time in the bank and part of the time in the vestibule.

The presence of a security guard will help people feel safer when they use an ATM during non-banking hours and will prevent people from sleeping and defecating in the vestibule.
