Whether they’re heading to San Francisco on vacation or Chicago for business, every passenger hopes for safe travels. So do friends, family, and colleagues who send them off with the familiar well wish “have a safe trip”!
Yet, with 9/11 still fresh in travelers’ minds and more recent global terrorist attacks, guaranteeing the safety of these trips is even more important, and challenging, than ever. It requires developing a security culture where people matter more than technology. A culture that extends beyond the staff of stakeholder organizations, to everyday passengers. Potentially one of the most under-utilized resources available to security managers, is the eyes and ears of employees and visitors to their facilities. So combining these resources is a winning strategy that helps anticipate both security and safety issues. For all staff, stakeholders, and passengers, the principle of “if you see something, say something” needs to be repeated on a regular basis to keep everyone alert to possible dangers, and informed about how and to whom issues should be reported.
Even an unsuccessful terrorist attack has the potential to interrupt business and damage customer confidence. At the same time, criminal elements also seek to exploit weaknesses in security routines to maintain their criminal operations, whether small-scale thefts or large-scale organized crime.
So a strong security culture is essential not just in airports, but anywhere transport and travel occur. That includes train stations, subway systems, and seaports that service both commercial cargo and passengers.
Although some terrorists have recently turned to areas where people aren’t screened, like baggage claim or check-in areas, the security station is still a key element in the security culture of any transportation hub. It’s a checkpoint designed to keep threats out and people safe. A leading supplier of these stations, The Security Station provides innovative, high-quality security equipment for all types of transportation hubs.
In the 2018 TSA’s “Biennial National Strategy for Transportation Security“, they list Physical Security as Priority 1 in managing risks from terrorist attacks, even above weapons detection. Security Station equipment can be a key part of your barrier and access control system and in creating your checkpoint station.

The environment around us has a great impact on how we feel, in this case, the presence of security should make us feel safe.
