  • Building Key Control:Building Key Control: One of the most important duties involved with high rise access control, is, the safe keeping & management of your building keys and access cards. Proper signing out of, tracking, and the return of building keys is of the UTMOST critical priority during your shift. This especially applies to sub-master, master, and grand master keys.
  • Key Control Procedures:Key Control Procedures: Key control procedures and dissemination of said keys can vary from operation to operation. However, there are several standard procedures to follow when signing out any metal keys or HID type access cards. First & primarily, the person, employee, or contractor requesting a key or access card, must be APPROVED to do so.
  • Key Control Procedures:Key Control Procedures: Procedure: 1.Verify that person requesting key access is approved. 2.Document in your Key Sign Out Log all the pedigree information needed. (Name, company, key #, license, phone #, purpose, destination, and TIMES.
  • Key Control Procedures:Key Control Procedures: Procedure: 3. Acquire and secure a valid ID (state license is most preferred) and place in key lock box. 4. Person requesting key access must sign off that he/she has received said key/ card.
  • If a key is NOT returned:If a key is NOT returned: 1. If a building key is not returned for whatever reason, it must be reported to the Security Mgr. and building Mgt. immediately. 2. Initially…The lead security officer or supervisor upon discovering a non returned key must reference the phone number listed and contact that person ASAP. 3. Upon contacting employee or contractor, they must be advised to return the key to the property immediately.
  • If a key is NOT returned:If a key is NOT returned: 4. If the person who has forgotten to return the keys states something like: “Oh yes, I realized when I got home that I had not turned in the key. I need my license back, so I will come back tomorrow with the key”. That is unacceptable and you must advise the individual that the key needs to be returned to the site ASAP.
  • If a key is NOT returned:If a key is NOT returned: If the person refuses to return the key immediately, then do not argue with them. Certainly pressure them diplomatically to return the key, but do not argue. Simply notify your manager of the situation, and they will contact the employee’s supervisor. Document in an incident report all the specifics, including details of the phone conversation.

  • 30 Building Key Control:Building Key Control:
  • 31 Grand Master Keys:Grand Master Keys: Grand master keys are metal keys that allow access to all building key cores. Having a GM key can be very efficient in terms of gaining access into multiple areas. However, no grand master key will ever be signed out unless approved by the Security Manager or Property Manager, ever.
  • 32 Grand Master Keys:Grand Master Keys: The intentional or unintentional loss of a grand master or even sub master key can be very costly. In some cases it can be hundreds of thousands of dollars to completely re-core a building that has misplaced a grand master key. You could also be held financially liable if you lose a GM key due to negligence. So don’t!

  • “Why do we have to do Detex tours? What so we won’t fall asleep”? The answer to that is no, sort of. Detex tours were originally designed as a tool to supplement the Fire Watch patrols of buildings. Now there primary purpose is not only that, but to substantially reduce the insurance premiums that companies pay to insure their property. Questions?

  • 125 You like to microwave do ya?You like to microwave do ya?
  • Some security personnel love to microwave their food. Having a microwave on site is almost a top priority. They seem to enjoy nuking fried chicken, fried won- tons, fried scallops, etc. I enjoy those delicious foodies myself. What I don’t like and completely despise, is, “fried detex”. What is fried detex? Does it have a lot of calories? Is it fattening? Like, is it gluten free?
  • No. Fried detex is none of those things. Fried detex is when a lazy security officer decides he has done enough detex tours (GCS, Guard 1, etc.) and places the touring wand in the microwave and nukes it for about a minute. This of course completely melts the internal circuitry and makes the wand useless.
  • At this point, the person who has done such a thing thinks they are in the clear, nobody is ever going to know what happened to the wand. The security manager or client will think, oh, the battery died, or it is old and doesn’t work anymore. I mean, the wand itself looks just fine, no visible damage is evident. I am in the clear, no more tours until a new one comes!!
  • Wrong. I will tell you what will happen. The security manager (someone like me) will inspect the wand. Then the wand will be sent out for repair. A couple days later, that manager will get a call from the manufacturer. They will state the wand is useless, as upon internal inspection, it was discovered that the circuitry was completely fried. Then the security manager begins to investigate…
  • This is what he finds. He or she looks at the last recorded touring times. They will look at daily reports and pass on information. They will question the last officers known to successfully use the wand. Management will narrow down to the exact shift when the touring wand stopped working. Then what happens? Then we have you. Your caught. You will be terminated. So. Don’t do it….

  • 10 codes serve as a critical and vital communication tool to relay important information or locations while substantially decreasing the amount of verbal chatter on the frequency band. These codes also act to conceal or abbreviate the actions of the individual officer from non-staff who can hear the radio transmissions. 10 codes simplify communication. Radio 10 codes:

  • 147 The challenge ofThe challenge of viewingviewing CCTV:CCTV:
  • Your facility camera system: How can you be fully aware of threatening situations quickly and reliably when you have perhaps hundreds of CCTV cameras to watch and other duties to perform?
  • Your facility camera system: A challenge faced by all security operations is the need to detect potentially threatening situations as soon as they develop. CCTV is widely used to monitor for events of interest, but operators naturally suffer from fatigue, boredom and distraction, limiting the effectiveness of this approach.
  • Your facility camera system: With multiple monitors to view, security console operators frequently face sensory overload, and may struggle to notice events that could alert them to significant threats. This condition is part of the normal biology of the human being and it can be an admitted challenge to find an infinite solution.
  • Your facility camera system: There are solutions though. All security personnel must monitor CCTV screens and alarm panels constantly, with no deviation. There are mechanisms and rotations that can be implemented to help ease the strain of watching a CCTV monitor for long periods of time.
  • Your facility camera system: Depending on the system you have in place, many intrusion or alarm events can trigger an internal audible alarm at your console/ desk area. Personnel must be alert to any intrusion or alarm event and investigate immediately. Security personnel must rotate if possible on 2-4 hour shifts of monitoring such systems to avoid the boredom and distractions we outlined earlier. These guidelines are especially critical to the weekend/ night shifts.
  • Your facility camera system: As for viewing perhaps hundreds of cameras, staff security officers and supervisors are only human, they can view and monitor only so much with their eyes at one time. That is why if your facility does have a large number of cameras to monitor, then that facility is obligated to at least have multiple viewing screens and supporting software that alerts personnel of an event that requires immediate attention and resolution.
  • It is only fair to the front line security personnel to have the proper and appropriate CCTV monitoring systems in place that counter that of the security manager and or client demands in which they expect certain intrusion & alarm events to be detected quickly. However, we can’t make excuses for oversight either. If your building is breached by an intruder who gained access thru an alarmed door and you did not effectively acknowledge Your facility camera system:
  • and investigate said unlawful entry, then there are going to be problems, big problems. If you engage in the practice of automatically re-setting the alarmed area because it has been “known” to be a nuisance and you are confident that “no one” would ever break into “your” building, then, your terribly wrong. Your access control system and the supporting CCTV system are there to tell you something. They are telling you that something is wrong. Your facility camera system:
