Paul Schuster, involved with police facilities planning at the Dallas Police Department, discusses the need for heightened security measures following incidents like the shooting at the police headquarters in 2015. The department collaborated with the security integrator and Boon Edam to install a Tourlock revolving security door and ballistic glass at the Jack Evans facility. The design includes full-height turnstiles for visitors and a one-way entrance for officers. Schuster emphasizes the importance of maintaining good communication and positive relationships with vendors to stay ahead of changing security needs. Increased security measures help officers feel safer while also making citizens feel more secure when visiting police facilities.
