To better secure city personnel and facilities, Wilton manors officials have hired Burns & McDonnell, a Fort Lauderdale security firm, to provide consulting services for security risk assessment.
As part of its contract with the city, Burns & McDonnell will develop a master security plan for all public facilities, identify funding sources needed for security upgrades, and educate city employees and the public on the plan created. The cost is $24,844.
“Burns & McDonnell will be providing security risk assessments that are both operationally accurate and actionable to meet established levels of security protections within financial constraints. Their overall goal of this project is to reduce the likelihood or severity of security-related incidents at specified City properties using available budget. More finite goals include maintaining publicly available areas, improving security interoperability, maintaining facility aesthetics, and improving operational effectiveness of technical and physical security,” read a document from Chief Paul O'Connell to the commission.
