AFPOP3 – Perimeter Security Planning, Products & Procedures
AIA accredited presentation – 1 Learning Unit (LU) including HSW
This presentation (1) outlines the role of passive and active perimeter security barriers and procedures in an effective holistic approach to blast mitigation and standoff distance for physical site security, (2) addresses recent developments and innovations with regard to design/build technologies, and (3) discusses the implications these products and procedures have on protecting critical infrastructure assets and facilities relative to homeland security.
Establishing and maintaining the perimeter of a facility or asset is a key component to an effective physical site security program. After defining the anticipated threats, physical security products and procedures can be put into place and implemented to better achieve the protection objectives. Fences, barriers, gates, bollards, pillars, planters, and pedestrian and vehicular access control systems establish the perimeter. These products can be integrated with intrusion detection sensors, cameras, lighting, and communication equipment to effectively deter, deny, delay, detect, and respond to threats. Policies can be adopted to address procedural security threats. Recent product developments (with test video clips), design/build technologies, and procedures will be highlighted and discussed, focusing on a holistic approach to physical site security.
