Security may be “as simple as putting bollards in certain places,” according to Cabinet Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science, Authur Sinodinos.
We agree. Bollards with VBIED and VBT protection is an aesthetically pleasing and effective way to mitigate vehicle-borne attacks.
VBIED and VBT protection is the solution
With extensive knowledge on VBIED and VBT protection, and with a team with a national presence, VBIED Bollards is well-positioned to provide this consultancy to make Australia a safer place. Our soft approach solutions protect against vehicle-borne terrorist attacks.
We are happy Sinodinos is recognising the need for VBT and VBIED protection in Australia.
Sinodinos has announced the Australian Government will provide consultancy to owners and operators of crowded places to ensure they are better equipped to protect against terrorist attacks.
On the ABC show Insiders, he said “terrorists particularly like the propaganda value of mass casualty events”.
“What we’ve done is put down a policy around crowded places and what we’re saying to owners and operators of crowded places is we’ll work with the full resources of the federal, state and local government… to work out a policy to help you audit your facilities, determine through a security assessment tool, where you have particular issues and then work out a strategy for how you strengthen and fortify these areas so people have a greater feeling of security when they’re visiting.”
Mr Sinodinos said you can’t guarantee an event will not happen. But you can take measures to deter, detect and mitigate the consequences.
“For a long time in Australia we’ve just had a mentality of live and let live and we can walk around doing whatever we want, now we need to have more of a ‘be alert but not alarmed’ mentality which in a security setting of my place of work, my place of entertainment, what measures can I do to give us a greater chance of deterring someone from doing something,” he said.
“It may be as simple as putting bollards in certain places. It may be as simple as putting CCTV cameras in the right places but we’ve got to have that mentality now.”
It really is as “simple” as a bollard installation.
