Security Search Techniques: Ship's Stores

Lots of packages, from lots of sources, handled multiple times - a difficult chain to keep secure. Add to this our assumption that if something is already packed, it must be okay. This is a recipe for disaster. A well run ship with a well trained crew view it differently. They see ship's stores as one more element to add to their list of searches and inspections; one more way to ensure safety of the ship, its crew, and cargo.

As a required part of the ISPS Code, crews must now view the process of loading supplies as a potential means by which terrorists may either gain access to or load contraband onto their ship. Security Search Techniques: Ship's Stores highlights this complex process and instructs the viewer on how best to mitigate risk through careful search and detection procedures.
