Long-time Keri Systems representative Bob Stosse recently contributed to Campus Safety Magazine with an in-depth look at Perimeter Security for campuses.
Stosse references the concept of Concentric Circles of protection as a reference to build a plan for layered protection of a property. This theory of layered protection includes the goals of, “deter, detect, delay and respond.”
Using the concept of Concentric Circles, Stosse describes how to identify and choose products that are appropriate to secure a campus’ unique perimeter, as well as ways to secure the specifics of a campus; such as fences, gate control, emergency call systems, security cameras and license plate recognition.
Working inward, Stosse looks to solutions that help a property “Deter and Delay.” This process includes mapping the unique qualities of a campus’ physical structure and the process of thoroughly examining the means by which people enter the property, their multitude of reasons for entering, and time-tested methods for keeping the right people in and the wrong people out.
Stosse also suggests the “Right Questions” people should be asking themselves about their campus access, and completes his assessment with a look at enterprise access control as a whole.
Bob Stosse has been a Keri Systems representative for 20 years, and is an expert in Access Control and Door Hardware.
