Electronic Physical Security

Screen shot of the front page of the Tech Tip cited in this article.

Physical security at Forest Service facilities is an increasing concern. Electronic equipment, such as closed-circuit television, can monitor facilities and deter intruders. Determining the equipment that is best suited for a particular situation can be difficult for facility managers, engineers, law enforcement officers, and others in charge of physical security. The MTDC facilities program funded a pilot physical security help desk to provide professional consultation for Forest Service employees who design, document, procure, operate, and troubleshoot electronic security systems.

The tech tip, Answers to Questions About Electronic Physical Security at Forest Service Facilities (0573–2305–MTDC), explains the help desk project and includes employee questions and feedback.
