The need to secure federal, state and local government infrastructure and property is an ever-constant issue. At no point in time can any organization be completely assured that all measures that can be taken have been taken, and then forget about the issue.
The security of government buildings is one such area that now faces more and more risk, owing especially to the multitude of threats aimed at the government from potential bad actors both international and domestic.
Unlike traditional approaches, terrorists, saboteurs and religious extremists are now targeting government infrastructure in an ever-evolving sphere of modern war. Consequently, the federal, state and local governments must approach the security of buildings from a new perspective.
