Board Approves Waterborne Security Barriers

Friday, May 05, 2006
Authorizing the expenditure of Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Port Security Grant Funds, the Board of Harbor Commissioners has approved an agreement with Siemens Building Technologies for waterborne security barriers. The $2.9m design-build agreement includes the design, fabrication and delivery of 10,000 feet of floating security barriers. The Port of Los Angeles is taking the lead on this joint Port of Los Angeles/Port of Long Beach project which was approved in Round 3 of the TSA's Port Security Grants. Each port will receive 5,000 feet of the waterborne barriers. These barriers will be placed at key locations around the ports during heightened security times. They will provide protection against certain types of attacks and will form a line of demarcation. The Port of Los Angeles has received a total of $26.6m in TSA Port Security Grants. To date, these grants have been used for the purchase of two SAFE harbor patrol boats, purchase of an interoperability communications vehicle, and feasibility study/design for a joint container inspection facility. Additionally, several projects have received grant funding and planning is underway for: a Port-wide camera surveillance system, Cruise Center vehicle screening system, Cruise Center perimeter security system, and Port of Los Angeles facility enhancements system.
