U.S. Ports Activity & Security - An Infographic

// posted on Friday, March 08, 2013

Mar 08




U.S. ports are tempting targets criminals looking to smuggle or steal goods and for terrorists bent on killing large numbers of people, grabbing media attention, and disrupting the U.S. economy.

Port, ferry, and cruise-ship terminals are often located in highly congested areas where large numbers of people live and work. Given the importance of foreign trade to the U.S. economy, an attack that shuts down a major American port for even a few days could devastate the regional economy served by that port.

With billions in goods and hundreds of thousands of people moving in and out of U.S. waterways every day, the incredible pressure on security personnel to constantly safeguard vessels, harbors, ports, waterfront facilities, and cargo from threats can seem overwhelming. But through some ground-breaking technology such as smart cameras with behavioral analytics, ports across the country are discovering there is an easier, more effective and cost-efficient way to protect themselves and the nation.

Review the infographic below and then email us at info@cgiprotects.com or call 504-483-7811 to find how this new technology can help put your port's security among the most advanced in the nation. (You can download a high resolution PDF of the graphic by clicking here.)

Fmr MS Governor Barbour Calls for Urgent Action on Shoring up U.S. Ports - Wall Street Journal Market Watch

Former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, speaking to a regional gathering of Gulf states harbor pilots, called for a "bias for action and a sense of urgency...for increased U.S. investment in waterways infrastructure and a national strategic policy to prepare and equip U.S. Ports in the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Seaboard for increased cargo and container volume from 'post-Panamax' vessels after the Panama Canal opens in 2015."

A Movement That Holds Water - Crescent Guardian's reaction to former Governor Barbour's Port action 

By flickr user zigazou76Crescent Guardian absolutely agrees with former Governor Barbour and the need to increase our waterways in the Gulf region to prepare for increased volume, which will create a much needed economic boost. We also believes we need to focus on increased security to handle both the good and bad that comes with increased volumes.

Crescent Guardian was recently part of a team that developed increased security measures at one of the critical deep water Ports in Louisiana. We implemented an Analytics package that enables existing IP video cameras to send alerts and alarms if anomalous behavior is detected. It is a patented and unique technology that is easy to implement and begins generating alerts immediately.

Security applications in environments like this need to take an integrated approach. Crescent Guardian offers the products and project management expertise that has been relied on by the transportation industry for more twenty years. When a holistic, proven approach is implemented, we are able to help clients create a safer environment in an uncertain world.
