APD Site Survey

1. MISSION: Continue business operations during normal working hours, protecting personnel, physical plant, and inventory from hostile threats.

2. TYPE:  Commercial building on fenced property

3. SIZE:  Ten acre property, within which a perimeter fence surrounds approximately one acre of parking lot and a 130 x 220’ building 

4. COMPLEXITY: One-story building; no additional structures.  Perimeter fence constitutes minor delay to foot movement from three sides; lack of a gate or control point results in no control or delay of access by vehicle or by foot from the street.

8. TIME WINDOW:  Weekday working hours between 8:30am and 3:00pm, when entire workforce is present. 

Prior security incidents – Review internal reports of daylight gang robbery event, parking lot incidents, and organized crime actions to identify patterns or methods of attack that might be repeated



Lobby and Front Hall exterior doors are single pane tempered glass in steel frame with deadbolt locks (thumb turn inside, cylinder lock outside).  Lobby door is unlocked during business hours.  Front Hall door remains locked, but executives each carry key and routinely use door for entry/egress during day.

Exterior doors PX-6 through PX-10, and interior hallway doors PI-5 and PI-9.1 are steel fire doors in steel frames with push bars which can be hex-key locked from the ‘inside’ position (Exterior doors are routinely locked into one-way ‘exit only’ mode).  They are highly resistant to mechanical breaching.

Accordion doors PX-3 in Shipping and Receiving are highly resistant to mechanical breaching when secured, but constitute significant security hazard as they stand open in the summer or are opened and closed during winter, for delivery vans. 

Interior doors of offices and admin areas are light gauge steel with windows in upper third, with deadbolt locks comparable to exterior doors, providing moderate resistance to mechanical breaching.  Restroom doors are solid, swinging doors without locks. 

Parking Lot Fence – 10’ chain link perimeter fence around one acre parking lot restricts vehicular traffic from Interstate frontage road to one entry-exit point.  

Entry is open, two lanes wide, with no gates or control points. Fence can be climbed but removal of large items would require breach of fence. Fence delays but does not prevent entry at any point. Nine undeveloped acres surrounding lot on three sides are effectively uncontrolled and unmonitored.

Concrete exterior walls are effectively impenetrable.  Exterior windows (PX-5.1 – 5.8) along front of building are non-operating single pane tempered glass, vulnerable to breakage and entry.  Non-operating 8” x 72” windows on both long walls are vulnerable to breakage but impractical for entry.  There is no roof access into building.  

Floor is poured slab.

Interior walls are drywall, do not constitute cover from gunfire and could be breached mechanically.


Four contract security guards on duty during working hours. Supervisor and one guard roam throughout building and around building perimeter on irregular schedule; one guard is posted in Lobby, and one in Shipping/Receiving.

General observation by occupants/employees – Vehicles enter property from the road within the field of view from all executive offices and the lobby.  Receptionist and security guard in lobby, roving security guards, and executives in offices and boardroom may detect suspicious activity by vehicles or personnel entering fenced lot, probability of detection is low and highly variable.  Delivery van drivers come and go at irregular intervals throughout the day and might detect pre-attack indicators on or near the property, or off-normal conditions in the community.

Response force: none.  Police response, based upon recent experience, is measured in days or weeks.

Communications – Business phone system with wall sets in each admin room, desk sets at each desk or work station. PA system with speakers throughout building, can be operated from lobby and manager offices only. All managers and most employees have personal cellular phones. 

Escape/evacuation routes and areas – in event of fire, all personnel evacuate into employee parking lots SW and NE of building.  Given local conditions, shelter in place is preferable to evacuation in the event of security threat.


Site tour will identify or confirm accessibility of property from off-site (avenues of approach and escape for adversaries); placement and characteristics of building exterior doors and surfaces, their resistance to penetration and status (open/closed, locked/unlocked) during specified time window

Assemble architectural diagrams, site plans, imagery from archives and public-access governmental and online sources.

Interview – Officers, executives, and department heads, with follow-up as indicated with same or additional personnel.

Previous site or security surveys – NONE
