After 23 years of dedicated service to Fermilab, Richard Meaderdes, Security Operations Center Dispatcher, is set to retire on July 16. Rick started his journey as a security officer before he was hired on as a dispatcher in the Communication Center. His hard work, commitment and dedication are commendable. Rick will be greatly missed. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.

Retiree badges

Due to recent changes in the lab’s Site Security Plan, we are no longer issuing Retiree (RT) badges for retirees who are not in Retiree Guest (GSR) or Scientist Emeritus (SE) statuses. Retiree Guest and Scientist Emeritus statuses are approved through the employees’ Division/Sections offices. If you have questions, please send email to
