Information : Multi-Purpose Security Facility
Electric Boat Corporation, Quonset Point Facility’s Multi-Purpose Security Facility includes total site surveillance and visitor access control in a single location. The Multi-Purpose Security Facility operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is equipped with state-of-the-art hardware and software.
Electric Boat Corporation, Quonset Point Facility (EBQP) has begun a major capital improvement of its security systems, policies, and procedures. The previous system was supported with a minimal budget until the events of September 11, 2001. Visitors entered EBQP and were taken to an internal badge office. This method created a high-risk situation for both the shipyard and the visitor. No surveillance equipment or procedures, other than direct eye contact, were available. During non-core operating hours, EBQP’s security workforce operated out of a single location with reduced staff.
EBQP’s main objective for its new Multi-Purpose Security Facility is to increase the control of visitors entering the facility. All visitors now report directly to the new Visitor/Badge Control Center where they obtain badges and are briefed before entering the facility. The technology incorporated into the new visitor and employee badge systems provides greater control at entry points, and reduced unnecessary activities that could cause traffic congestion and impede access. A conference area with audio-visual capabilities was added to conduct hearings and meetings and accommodate those events when perimeter access is an issue. The conference area has eliminated unnecessary entry into the facility by visitors or vendors who do not need to enter the complex or may be considered a potential security risk.
With EBQP’s new Multi-Purpose Security Facility, security personnel can conduct business in a more professional manner with greater efficiency and improved control of visitors, vendors, and employees. The new facility contains state-of-the-art technologies and remote video surveillance and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
