Best Practices for Securing a Parking Lot or Garage

Joe Wenzel published an article in Security Magazine today related to "Best Practices for Securing a Parking Lot or Garage" Listed below are several of the items he highlighted.
  • Keeping all areas, especially stairwells, adequately illuminated.
  • Providing intercom call stations for stranded patrons or patrons requiring assistance.

  • Providing well-illuminated shelters for waiting patrons.
  • Providing intuitive directional instruction signs to areas, levels, terminals, shuttle stops, etc.

  • Installing CCTV systems (e.g. video surveillance) that are regularly monitored.
  • Displaying notifications about each facility’s safety measures (e.g. “This Facility is Under 24 Hour Surveillance”).
