(2) Sometimes it is found impractical to require that all cars be parked outside restricted areas.
If so, then only employees should be allowed to park within the enclosure. In case of interior restricted
area parking, the parking zone should be away from important facilities or processes. They should be
separately fenced in such a way that occupants of vehicles must pass through a pedestrian gate before
entering the facility. Security guard personnel should monitor movements of personnel to parking
areas. This will prevent unauthorized removal of property.
(3) Enough parking space should be provided for visitors near access control points to prevent
their entering other areas. Visitor parking areas should be under close watch of security guards. This
will prevent unauthorized removal of government property.
f. Truck Control.
(1) A close inspection of all trucks entering or leaving a post should be required. An orderly
system should be established to limit and control the movement of trucks and other conveyances within
such areas. Where possible, loading and unloading platforms should be outside restricted areas.
Sometimes, however, this is not possible. If not, turnaround areas for loading and unloading should be
at, or as near to as possible, to the truck gates. This will help to eliminate theft by employees and
truckers of items being loaded or unloaded.
(2) All trucks and conveyances entering a restricted area should be required to pass through a
service gate manned by guards. Truck drivers, helpers, passengers, and vehicle contents should be
carefully examined. The guard check at truck entrances should cover both incoming and outgoing
trucks. They should also include the following:
(a) Appropriate entries on a truck register. This should include registration of truck, name of
truck owner, and signatures of driver and helper. Also included should be a description of load and
date/time of entrance/departure.
(b) Identification of driver and helper.
This should include proof of employment by the
company owning the truck or conveyance.
(c) A license check of the vehicle operator and his driver or helper.
(d) Examination of the truck or other conveyance, if feasible.
The aim is detection of
(3) Cards or badges should be issued to drivers and helpers who have been identified and
registered. Such cards should permit only limited access to specific loading/unloading areas.
