How to protect employees and citizens by creating a safer public environment

Hotels, stadiums and concert venues are increasing their investment in security operations and equipment in order to better protect employees and visitors, and provide a more satisfying customer experience.

Why invest in screening and detection security?

Recent events have made enhanced security and screening a key priority to protect hospitality and entertainment venues.
