Security Assessments / Audits / Studies & Masterplans
LCS provides full security system assessments looking at the current operations and security systems to determine if they meet the needs of the facility. LCS analyzes the function and life cycle of existing security technology and equipment. Through meetings with user groups, LCS uncovers and outlines all security concerns and potential vulnerabilities.
LCS also provides in-depth Threat-Risk-Vulnerability assessments for new and existing facilities.
Using the information obtained during the assessment phases and design principles such as Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED), LCS produces recommendations to overcome the current vulnerabilities and options to meet the needs of the facility.
LCS prepares reports outlining all existing conditions, detailed recommendations and budget estimates associated with the recommendations.
LCS provides full engineering design services for the following systems: Touchscreen Control, Video Surveillance, Video Analytic, Access Control, Detention Door Control, Intercom, Public Address, Audio Surveillance, Duress Alarm, Personal Duress Alarm, Watchtour, Cell Call, Video Visitation, Perimeter Security, Fence Detection, Intrusion Detection, X-Ray Screening, and Metal Detection.
Security system design should be dictated by the specific operational and functional requirements of each facility rather than having the design determine how the institution operates. To ensure this, LCS meets with the site representatives to fully understand the operational and security requirements of the institution. Based on these requirements, LCS provides innovative design solutions best suited to meet the needs of the facility.
LCS prepares engineering specifications and AutoCAD drawings, including:
- system layouts to indicate the location of all security devices
- system riser diagrams to indicate the system interconnections
- door details to indicate the door devices and door operations
- sketches and details
LCS coordinates security designs with other disciplines such as architectural, mechanical and electrical engineering.
The benefits of LCS’ designs include:
- in-depth system integration
- latest technology
- creative solutions best suited for the users
- extensive experience from a wide variety of facility types
These benefits provide system and alarm monitoring efficiency that minimizes response time to security related incidents.
