After review by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of the service standards adopted and followed by Securitas Electronic Security Inc., the DHS has awarded Securitas Electronic Security (SES) SAFETY Act protection (Designated).
The SAFETY (Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies) Act ensures the possessors of anti-terrorism technologies are not deterred by the threat of liability from developing and commercializing products and technologies that could save lives in the event of a terrorist attack.
SES approved anti-terror technology or services protected under the SAFETY Act are designed to deter, detect and delay the threat of terrorist activity, and include installation and integration services for electronic security; perimeter intrusion detection; access control and video surveillance systems.
The technology includes:
- Engineering, design, implementation, management and ongoing maintenance services.
- Installation and integration of access control, video surveillance systems, intrusion detection, fire alarm and communication systems.
- Central station monitoring services.
- Manuals, training, and support services.
When applicable, the SAFETY Act should extend the protection to all parties in the supply chain, including SES’s government and private sector customers and subcontractors.
