Security Interventions for Terror

Security Interventions for Terror

There are some key reasons that drive the need for increased security interventions for terror. ASI Security is aware of these reasons and offers the leading edge security solutions needed. Here are the reasons we’re referring to, and why we are uniquely equipped to fill this need. 

How Active Shooter Detection Systems Work

How Active Shooter Detection Systems Work

Several active shooter incidents have taken place in the first quarter of 2023, from the tragic Lunar New Year shooting in Monterey Park, California to the February 16 Cielo Vista Mall shooting in El Paso, Texas. In the El Paso event, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Air and Marine Operations (AMO) responded to the scene to deliver a coordinated response with local police. Federal agencies supporting law enforcement on the ground in active shooter incidents is common; in fact, AMO teams have responded to 12 active shooter incidents since the beginning of fiscal year 23 to date. 

Security for Border Detention Facilities

Security for Border Detention Facilities

Very recent Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) data compiled by Syracuse University reveals that there were 20,892 individuals housed in ICE detention as of January 15, 2023. Currently, ICE detains undocumented migrant individuals in over 200 detention centers throughout the United States, including privatized facilities, state and local jails, juvenile detention centers and shelters. 

Security Technology for the Border Crisis | Part 2

Per the most recently available U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data, the roughly 2 million migrants who encountered border agents in fiscal year 2022 included individuals on the Terrorist Screening Dataset (TSDS), colloquially known as the “terror watchlist.” In FY22, there were 98 encounters with non-U.S. citizens on the TSDS; at the start of FY23, the CBP reports nine more TSDS encounters have already occurred so far. This exposes a deep need for border security technology that can protect the homeland from potential terror activity. 

Security Technology for the Border Crisis | Part 1

In October, new U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data on migrant encounters showed that federal agents at the southwest border encountered more than 2 million migrants in fiscal year 2022. As reported, a substantial spike in migration from Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua accounts for the increase from 2021, when the 1.7 million migrants encountered by agents largely stemmed from Central American countries. As evidenced by a monthly CBP operational update, the shocking statistics seem virtually endless. 

Fire Prevention in Virginia

Focusing on Fire Prevention in Virginia

It’s National Fire Prevention Month, but here in Virginia, there’s been a major increase in house fires all across the commonwealth. The Virginia Red Cross has been called to 29 fires so far this month as people are being forced to evacuate their homes, many of them sustaining injuries and experiencing trauma. Because of National Fire Prevention Month, the Richmond Fire Department and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) are providing these tips. 

CCTV to Combat Catalytic Converter Theft in Virginia Beach

When it comes to the most commonly stolen auto parts, catalytic converters are always near the top of the list. Catalytic converter theft has been on the rise for the past several years, both nationally and locally. In fact, Virginia Beach police have launched a program that offers a cash reward to those who provide successful tips leading to the arrest of catalytic converter thieves.
