Recreational facilities remain a soft target for carrying terrorist attacks. The large influx of people makes it an attractive target. Often, security and safety issues are prioritized in the wrong manner.
It is imperative to define what we want to prevent and how we can respond to different safety and security scenarios. One of the most important issues is defining where we want to detect irregularities and get early warning. This process is crucial for building a security plan that will allow a response in real time and the capability of isolating the problem from the crucial areas.
Condor carries operational assessments for recreational facilities and prepares a field report of the venue. This phase is crucial in understanding if the current security system can deal with different scenarios. Think of it a s stress test on the system. For example, had a stress test been done on the current pandemic, all medical and health authorities would have responded differently and taken certain proactive measures regarding equipment. The current pandemic was underestimated in its impact.
Designing a security system for a large recreational venue will depend on many factors such as the topography, profile of the security system, quality of the manpower, security culture of the employees, technology and much more. The expertise lies in finding a solution which is cost effective and can tolerate different scenarios both at the preventative and response levels.
