The Y-12 Plant Oak Ridge Facilities Security Department maintains a comprehensive security program. This program is characterized by a flexible, multi-faceted, and responsive approach to the security requirements of projects with classifications requirements from UNCLASSIFIED to SECRET-RD. The Security Department handles program elements that include physical security, information security, computer security, operational security, and Technical Surveillance Countermeasures.
Within the Y-12 Plant facilities, separate secure areas can be established as required. A comprehensive access control system involving central enrollment, partitioned access, guard forces, inspection, and detection equipment protect the layered restricted and limited access zones. Some design work is conducted in the transit/transportation security arena with the development of security containers and closed container inspection systems.
Complementing the physical access control, barrier systems, and intrusion sensors is a highly trained guard force. The security forces range from unarmed guards to heavily armed tactical response or SWAT forces. The site security manager has direct access to the facility's upper management and cooperates with life safety management on areas of possible conflict. The site security manager also communicates with the technical divisions to ensure their security requirements are pro-actively addressed. The facility security services provide an added value through the range of services they support and the availability of an exceptional reaction force training facility.
