Security Planning

CDTC recognizes that the primary responsibility for transportation security lies elsewhere. NYSDOT, other transportation service providers, state/county/local governments, and emergency responders are tackling security planning from various perspectives. However, there are areas related to security where CDTC is already involved. This includes long and short term planning activities and project funding. Although the immediate organizational response to security incidents and disasters will be the responsibility of security/public safety agencies, there is an important role that CDTC can play in promoting coordinated planning in anticipation of natural disasters or criminal/terrorism events. This involves regional coordination, data depository, technical support, and funding. CDTC will consider examination of security issues and incorporation of security actions using computer modeling and scenario planning in transportation planning and investment decisions
