Port of Corpus Christi Gets Secure

Texas port utilizes integrated security system.

by / December 5, 2003
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas -- The Port of Corpus Christi (POCC) needed to integrate physical security, access control and new intrusion detection systems for the nation's sixth largest port and will use a $2.27 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to fund a new security system. Congress provided funding for the grant program to the newly created Transportation Security Administration, now responsible for security.

The funds will be used, in part, for a number of security improvements from Adesta including surveillance cameras for the inner harbor waterway; fiber-optic links; high-intensity security lighting, a security control center and intrusion/motion sensors at designated strategic locations throughout the inner harbor.
