Broadcast Station Site Safety Assessments

Unfortunately, media outlets and personnel have become targets of violence and harassment.  In an effort to help provide protection to broadcasters in Michigan, the MAB and Michigan State Police Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Desk are partnering to help broadcast stations ensure safety for their staff and facilities by offering Station Site Safety Assessments that will evaluate and make practical recommendations of security operations at broadcast stations and identify options for facility owners and operators to mitigate against relevant threats.
