SECURITY OF AIRPORT PARKING LOTS

The layout of most airport parking lots makes them very vulnerable to crime attempts. The security at these parking lots must be tightened in order to protect the employees and the public from these attempts. This article deals with two types of airport parking lots: public parking lots used by passengers and parking lots used by freight services employees. Security measures that can be taken are described under five main topics: physical security, police support, cooperation of parking lot operator, traveler cooperation, and support from other airport personnel. Physical security includes such considerations as fencing, lighting, signage, and technology. Each type of parking lot is treated separately, the analysis concluding with twenty questions to be considered in providing maximum security for a cargo employee parking lot.
