The New York City Police Department this week released Engineering Security: Protective Design for High Risk Buildings. The study aids the New York City building community by providing recommendations on how to prevent and mitigate the effects of a terrorist attack on a building, and a tiering system designed to categorize buildings based on risk.
Engineering Security draws from the NYPD Counterterrorism Bureau’s extensive experience conducting security reviews of high-profile buildings in and around New York City. It is the result of a collaborative effort, led by the NYPD, and informed by the suggestions of the New York City Fire Department, the Department of Buildings, and the Department of City Planning, and by the industry insight of professional associations representing New York City’s engineers, architects and developers.
