Tuesday, November 22, 2016 by Andrew Jones

Who has permission to be in your building?

Wednesday, August 3, 2016 by Andrew Jones

PlaceholderIs he wearing a VALID badge? How can you tell? Visitor badges that “expire” show your staff who is authorized and who is not. At a large hospital in Hartford, Conn., a security guard perched on a stool at his post near the entrance to the maternity wing. At fifty years of age, Officer Thompson was well past his football-playing days, but, at six feet tall and over two hundred pounds, he still looked like he could handle any intruder. As a vendor exited the double doors, ...
