Commercial and Private Industries
The nation’s critical infrastructure includes many private companies. But many companies not part of the critical infrastructure require protection of their assets and people, too:
- Learning Institutions: public & private school campuses, athletic venues, and meeting venues
- Professional Sports: stadiums and arenas present unique problems for traffic control
- Meeting Venues: music shows, political and religious gatherings, mixed use facilities
- Loss Prevention: rental car facilities, power sub-stations, and distribution centers
Public learning institutions have a critical need for protection of students and employees in light of many recent events. Though school facilities are targets for “lone wolf” perpetrators on foot, an appropriate show of physical security including checkpoints can dissuade many potential troublemakers. SecureUSA is pleased to be a major provider of Intelligent Perimeter Security Solutions (IPDS) to many public and private universities and some public school districts.
Sports venues, music venues, and any large gathering facility are obvious targets for foreign and domestic terrorists. Highly attractive as targets, especially with television and radio coverage, stadiums, arenas, and coliseums enclose large numbers of people that can be injured if only by an event causing panic. Controlled vehicle entry, a perimeter that delays intrusion and inspection points at critical junctions can dissuade or limit damage and loss of life. The complex monitoring requirements of large venues with many exits and a labyrinth of spaces creates unique problems for physical security. SecureUSA has played a part in many university, professional sports, and meeting venues to incorporate IPDS solutions to help mitigate unwanted events.
Companies with high-value assets must protect those assets from theft and vandalism. Commercial enterprises such as auto rental agencies have shown a clear need to prevent auto theft. Today, most airport consolidated rental facilities (known as CONRACS) utilize technologies which prevent stolen vehicles in most instances. SecureUSA is a leading provider of these systems to several major rental car companies. IPDS helps here in providing custom, operational programming to fit the unique situations of each CONRAC and provides for remote diagnostics by SecureUSA service technicians.
IPDS integrates vehicle access control points with CCTV and other intrusion detection systems to provide real-time status and control. System status and maintenance can also be accomplished using IT software, often remotely by SecureUSA service technicians.
