This is such a bad news not only for the general public but also for the officials whose task is to make sure the peace and order reign in the area of responsibilities. The growing menace of the society poses a big problem that is not at all becoming easy to solve. With this in mind, there has to be creative and smarter solutions in approaching the situations.
One of the things that can be done is to thoroughly implement standard security measures. These measures are usually sufficient if only security guards or anyone tasked to go about these measures would only be patient enough to go through each step.
Sometimes because nothing bad is happening, everyone becomes lax including the people who should be always keen on watching suspicious things and behaviors. Only when the news reports of failed bombings or successful terrorist operations do everyone go back to being always on their toes. It is about time that people take seriously the call to be vigilant.
Second is to have hand held metal detectors in all establishments. Metals are usually the main driving force behind devices so detecting a metal device early on can save everyone of a brewing future trouble. Personnel at the doors should not be scared to use the hand held metal detector to anyone who enters even if there are VIP’s.
It can be a hassle but it is okay to have a bit hassle than to have none and ending up blaming the fact that the person who was able to infiltrate a said building or establishment just got in without any trouble. Though there are many possible hiding places of metal pieces, a person who knows how to use a hand held metal director would have an idea where to more or less look for metal stuff.
These two things can certainly have an impact in security and to think these are but basic measures that can be applied by anyone or anywhere. Make sure then to do the two things above to make yourself secure during perilous times like what we are experiencing now.
