BUILDING SECURITY AT 777 N CAPITOL STREET
Security Problems Building designed for ease of access in 1989 Direct access from garage Three diverse owner-tenants COG (public association) ICMA (association) ICMA-RC (financial investment firm) 2010 DC HSEMA audit recommended specific increases in security High profile elected officials and heads of government agencies Public access and large meetings “Do not Admit” list is manual and relies on guards to recognize faces
Review of Solutions Toured buildings around ours – all had some system of visitor check-in Hall of States Meeting attendee list, id check, swipe through turnstile WMATA ID check, hand written badge, bag & body scan Public areas on 1 st floor, separated from WMATA offices
