3-Element Perimeter Security
It's Not Just a Fence, It's a System

By Rich McManus

The black metal fence being erected — albeit in brief marches between rain showers — this summer and fall may be the most obvious part of the new NIH perimeter security system, but it isn't all that stands between the campus and a potential aggressive act. Two other elements — a campus Gateway Center and a Central Vehicle Inspection facility for all commercial vehicles — offer additional protection. The three elements, not all proceeding at the same pace (mainly to preserve parking for NIH'ers), will eventually harmonize and "work together in an integrated fashion to create a total perimeter security program," said Arturo Giron, deputy chief security officer, Office of Research Services.
