Are you responsible for security & safety at your institution (just one of the many hats that you wear)? Like most of us, do you have extremely limited budgetary and “manpower” constraints for mitigating threats? This session will address critical day-to-day security concerns, and provide valuable low-cost or no-cost tools for protecting staff, visitors, and collections. Topics will include: Hiring the Right People (including volunteers), Best Practices for Employee Screening, All-Staff Security Awareness, Protection Policies & Procedures, Preventing Internal & External Theft (including prevention of vandalism), Entry Screening for Small Museums, Access Control Considerations (including Key Control), Conflict Resolution & Confrontation De-Escalation, and Best Practices in Securing Collections on Exhibit and in Storage.
