Visitor Management Systems in the Age of Covid-19

Knowing who is entering your facility is more than just a security issue in today’s pandemic.

Eric Brandon Almly had a good system. Dressed in business casual clothing, he would find a corporate headquarters or office facility and stroll in as if he belonged. He’d mix in with employees, walk the corridors, peer into vacant offices, and target unattended laptops, which he would slip into a shoulder bag. He pilfered his way across California, Arizona, and Florida before finally being captured, but not before he had amassed hauls from the corporate offices of Burger King, Lennar, World Fuel Services, Outback Steakhouse, and FedEx.

If U.S. cities defund police, we will end up relying on poorly trained security guards.

Seattle’s city council recently voted to cut police funding by half. Baltimore, Hartford, Conn., and Portland, Ore., have also trimmed law enforcement budgets, and other jurisdictions are sure to follow. While the movement to take police off the streets may have moral intentions, the consequences of doing so can be deeply troubling.

Just recently in Seattle, security guards brought in to protect the parks due to depleted police ranks abandoned their positions after only a few hours of heckling and abuse.

Pandemics, Recessions and Disasters: Insider Threats During Troubling Times

The unifying power of security

When Benjamin Franklin emerged onto the steps of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall at the close of the 1787 Continental Convention, he was asked whether the Founding Fathers had decided on a monarchy or a republic. “A republic, if you can keep it,” he reportedly said.

Only once has the ability to keep that republic been in serious doubt – in the years up to and during the Civil War. Could it be in doubt again today? If so, security can be a model for preserving the republic.

How did we get here? Long, unstable fault lines in the bedrock that undergirds U.S. society have become active, sending seismic waves that have shaken the social contract. Citizens can’t agree on basic facts. People question whether COVID-19 is real amid shifting medical advice and conflicting data on case and death rates. The footing keeps getting less stable. Economic freefall. Surging unemployment. White supremacists, fascists and anarchists boldly emerging from the shadows. Loss of faith in law enforcement by swaths of the populace after black citizens perished in police custody. Rampant misinformation campaigns by anonymous groups and nations. The result is a bitterly split populace that has retreated to their respective echo chambers….
