Guard-Systems Inc. Offers Free Security Site Assessments in Response to Increasing Terrorist Activity
Los Angeles, CA – October 25, 2016 – In wake of the alleged plot to bomb an apartment complex in Garden City, Kansas, Guard-Systems Inc. (GSI) is offering free security site assessments for high-rise buildings and gated communities. This is in response to escalating threats from international and “home-grown” terrorism. Terrorist understand that buildings play varied roles in society and the economy making the physical security of the building occupants and assets a vital concern.
The 2016 policy agenda for the Real Estate Round Table discussion with the Department of Homeland Security stated, “Real estate is one of the few critical infrastructure sectors that terrorists have attacked successfully. In today’s environment, with increased security at official government and military sites (as well as iconic structures), it is not surprising that terrorists and violent criminals may increasingly view civilian-centric “soft targets” — hotels, offices, shopping centers, train or metro stations and other public spaces — as primary targets.”
The most recent alleged bombing plot on a residential apartment complex in Kansas adds increased emphasis to this point. In response to these threats GSI is offering free security site assessments. A security site assessment is a formal examination of a facilities overall security program. It takes an in-depth look at all aspects of a buildings security program to identify any weaknesses, find opportunities to improve security and make security operations more efficient.
Guillermo Amador, Executive Vice President of GSI explains, “During my service in the US Army, I learned that when lives are on the line, nothing can be taken for granted. That’s why I am glad we are doing this. Even if a building currently has a security program in place, getting an independent and objective look from a fresh set of eyes often uncovers areas that may be missed otherwise. I wish it wasn’t necessary, but it’s very satisfying to know that work we do can actually save lives.”
