Security Scans May Mean Delays At Military Gates

Naval Station Mayport is adding an additional Security measure to its gates and it may be an initial delay to getting on the base. The Navy Access Control Management System (NACMS) Handheld Scanners have been re-issued to Naval Station Mayport for use at the station’s Entry Control Points (ECP’s), such as the main gate at Mayport Road and Gate 5, off of SRA1A. The scanners have the added capability to scan, read and authenticate DoD Common Access Cards (CAC), DoD Retired Military IDs, and DoD Dependents IDs, along with RAPIDGate credentials. Initial scanning of an ID Card or RAPIDGate credential may take 15-20 seconds to complete, however, once an ID Card or RAPIDGate credential is scanned, all scans afterwards should only take around 5 seconds to complete. To reduce traffic back-ups and delays, personnel are asked to plan an extra 15-20 minutes in their morning commute during the next 3 to 4 weeks while the scanners work to effectively scan each and every credential and ID card.

Sea-Tac Security Cam Captures Man Running Toward Tarmac

Sea-Tac security cam captures man running toward tarmac SEATAC, Wash. – Security camera video obtained by KOMO News shows how a man was able to walk through a restricted emergency exit and make his way toward the tarmac at Sea-Tac Airport. The security breach happened Jan. 9 between gates 2 and 3 in Sea-Tac’s D concourse. An airport spokesperson says the mentally ill man opened a glass door exit that leads to stairs, which lead to the tarmac. Baggage handlers noticed the man and tackled him when he tried to run away from the terminal. Police arrested the suspect and took him to the King County Jail. They did not release his name or age. He was not armed and did not make any verbal threats. Officials say he had a ticket and made it through security with no problem. The incident raises questions about security breaches at the airport and whether passengers should be concerned. "By tackling him they were obviously on point about what they needed to do," said Annie Salonen. "If for some reason someone does get past that then they’ll be taken care of." Port of Seattle Police Chief Colleen Wilson said while her officers are ready to react quickly to any threat, all employees are expected to challenge anybody who appears to be in a restricted area without authorization. She applauds what the baggage handlers did. "It’s a really great example of the multiple layers of security we have built in here at the […]

Genetec Improves Vehicles Tracking At Avis Budget

01-01-2014 Having already deployed the Genetec Autovu system, Avis Budget Group required an upgraded system to give them not just an LPR solution, but additionally, an advanced access control solution with integrated video surveillance which could provide them with the ability to track their entire stock of vehicles with evidence to support the in-out activity. The plan was also to extend this solution beyond the gates of their headquarters into other locations such the airport branches. As the previous City Manager for Avis Bugdet Group’s Toronto Operations, Mrs. Suzanne Myrand was tasked with finding a new security solution that would help prevent future vulnerability at the headquarters. She was familiar with the Autovu system and realized the potential that the technology offered, but had a more aggressive plan in mind: "We needed an automated system that would give us the traceability we required on both the vehicles and their drivers," said Myrand. More than an integrated and scalable system, Mrs. Myrand was also looking for a dependable and responsive solution, one that would be able to accommodate a large volume of vehicles coming and going. "We needed quick response from the complete solution as someone approached the entrance or exit, so that we would not hold up the gate," explains Myrand. "With 1000 moves within a working day, we just don’t have the extra time to wait 10 seconds at each swipe of a card." Last on their list of criteria was the need for a reliable supplier. "We […]
