Port Security Management
begins with a historical and organizational perspective on maritime and port security. It discusses the management of risk assessment presented within the context of maritime and port facilities’ unique vulnerabilities. The important relationships between risk analysis, facility security planning, and coordination among stakeholders—including private sector businesses and the public—provides the framework for understanding the pivotal roles of security managers, security personnel, and law enforcement in ensuring the safety and security of port users and their interests.
The book also addresses the ground-level issues, tasks, and responsibilities of the security manager in concert with the port director and law enforcement agencies. The author explores the growth of multi-use port facilities for recreation, hospitality, and external business and commercial interests. Finally, the book examines the need to develop contingency and emergency operations plans to work effectively with federal, state, local, and private enterprises in coordinating both routine and emergency response mechanisms.
