Subsidized housing… A security challenge not like too many others.
There are real people who really need help and there are programs in place for them to receive it. Now; then these same programs draw in predators of all kinds and those who game the system. There are even those who advocate for the predators and those abusing the system in order to make their living.
Security in this niche is a battle on multiple sides. The immediate threats of harm to staff and others are not only real but dangerous. Dealing with that is one issue, dealing with the predators perpetrating these acts from within the system becomes another battle as they hide behind advocates and the system’s antiquated policies. Another challenge is the denial of those supporting the system and the active ignorance to the real dangers. Using intelligence, Law Enforcement, Threat Assessment, CCTV, and all available resources while still supporting those in real need is a unique niche that we get to look at in this episode.
