Project Profile: County of Delaware Courthouse & Government Center, Pennsylvania

Project: Security Assessment, Planning & Design/Construction Services

Scope of Work: The County of Delaware, in 1986, was one of the first counties in the country to pursue “government-wide” security vulnerability and threat defense implementation of security operational and access requirements for its buildings. This increased alignment of departments, improved public access in secure environments, and even today meets the requirements of homeland security since the events of 2001.

After a complete facility review with the sheriff and the Administrative Office of the Courts Division, PSE implemented a multi-phase government wide restructuring of access and security for many of the County’s facilities. One-by-one, each site became better equipped to function operationally while securing public, staff, law enforcement, and those held in a diversity of custody/detention situations. The County remains an active client after more than 20 years.
