WORLD'S TIGHTEST AIRPORT SECURITY?

Coordination is identified as the key to the success of the security system at Detroit's Metropolitan airport. The system involved the following procedures: establishing procedures and systems for physical security of the many installations and kinds of property at the airport; measures to prevent loss of air cargo; coordinating the efforts of security personnel; managing the system; and developing policy manuals. Regular coordination meetings are held with well-defined goals. The main features of the overall program include badge and vehicle identification systems for authorized personnel; extensive inspection systems; strategic control points for traffic flow of all kinds; guard systems; and an educational and training program.
