Richmond Times Dispatch: “Terror at Sea”

Filed under: Port and Maritime Security — by Christian Beckner on December 11, 2005

The Richmond Times-Dispatch has a long story this weekend on the topic of maritime security, focused on the port in Hampton Roads for its examples. There are some interesting statistics, anecdotes and quotes in the story, which collectively illustrate the complexity of managing security in a large port with many stakeholders. The examples and lessons mentioned in this story – for example, about the challenges of using radiation detection devices – are exactly the kind of lessons that need to be shared broadly, as I mentioned in this previous post.

If you’re interested in these issues, read the whole thing.
