Isotec recently completed field testing of Ceia’s SMD600 Plus metal detector at a courthouse to determine its screening capability and compatibility while operating within an Isotec Safety Entrance®. The testing results were conclusive and validated the metal detector’s compatibility with the Safety Entrance® while operating with sensitivity levels set to detect guns and knives with blades as small as 3.1”.
Going forward Isotec may recommend the SMD600 Plus for use in our Safety Entrances® at sites with elevated screening requirements, such as courthouses and other municipal or federal facilities.
Keeping our clients from harm’s way is the overarching mission that drives everything we do. As part of that mission, we’re broadcasting information related to services from the Department of Homeland Security. The DHS offers services that can increase the safety and security of courthouses and municipal infrastructures.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, (CISA), an agency within the DHS, provides site assessment services via the Protective Security Advisor (PSA) Program. The protective security advisors at CISA provide detailed reports that detail areas of vulnerability and recommendations for potential solutions.
CISA is a valuable resource for providing leading-edge and thought leader solutions. The PSA Program’s primary mission is to proactively engage with federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial government mission partners and members of the private sector stakeholder community to protect critical infrastructure through these five mission areas.
CISA assists with planning, coordinating, and conducting security and resilience surveys and assessments of nationally significant critical infrastructure by offering Assist Visits, Infrastructure Survey Tool, Rapid Survey Tool, and the Regional Resiliency Assessment Program.
CISA’s planning and outreach activities provide access to critical infrastructure security. CISA also provides resilience resources, training, and information for critical infrastructure owners and operators.
CISA can serve as a liaison between federal and local government officials, private sector critical infrastructure owners, and operators during and after an incident.
CISA coordinates and supports improvised explosive device awareness and risk mitigation training, and the Cybersecurity Division’s assessments and resources.
