The mission and purpose of the security controls program is to maintain a secure and safe work place for the tenants that occupy TFC properties in the Austin area and out of Austin buildings. This is accomplished by having a unique security controls staff that offers an array of services and responses twenty-four hours a day 365 days a year. Security Controls respond to all security control related after hour emergencies and calls. The Security Controls team is responsible for all electronic controls for access, surveillance, alarms and audio/visual system for all buildings that are managed by TFC. The Security Controls team works closely with the Office of Security and Safety Program with security policies, procedures and system designs and development approvals. The team provides consulting and system design services for access control, alarm and video surveillance system projects for TFC's FDC and minor construction departments as well as other state agencies.
