Some of the most essential decisions made in the whole world are made within government buildings’ rooms and halls. Government bodies offer all of their citizens essential services and policies that guide everyone’s everyday lives, so security becomes a crucial element for the facilities used. There are many different threats that government facilities face, including domestic or potentially foreign terrorism. In today’s day and age, where everyone around the world is dealing with a pandemic, government officials can’t afford to be put at risk. Read on to learn how the government sector can improve its security efforts.
Access Control Systems
Access control systems are security systems that are used to regulate who is allowed to enter certain sections of a building. Within the government sector, clearance is everything, and access control systems are the best way to prevent those without the correct credentials from entering specific spots. These systems have a wide range in what they are available to do, from biometric systems that are able to read fingerprints to CCTV-based video systems that use ID cards to identify one’s identity. These systems are helpful, but they alone are not enough to defend a government facility or crossing.
Parking garages or lots of government buildings are some of the spots most susceptible to wrongdoing. Inspecting your vehicles accurately and looking for the correct information is necessary if you are dealing with possible vehicular threats and unwanted intruders. Gatekeeper’s Intelligent Vehicle Undercarriage Scanner is more than capable of inspecting under vehicles intelligently to see if any risks are underneath a vehicle. The scanner can be paired up with an Intelligent License Plate Recognition system, or ILPR, to track down license plates and help verify identity, just like an indoor access control system might do.
Building Design and Security Personnel
Having personnel trained within security protocols is a requirement. Every single staff member should be fully aware of emergency exits and who to speak to in the event of a security concern. Also, building design itself can contribute significantly to quality security and privacy. Having areas clearly indicate who has the proper access to each section is a beautiful way of preventing any mix-ups on the part of visitors and guests.
