Case Study

Department of Transportation

The DOT needed to find a way to develop a keyless system that was foolproof for its executive office and satellite offices. It chose Kantech Systems Inc., a Montreal-based company that is a division of Tyco's Fire & Security Services.

The New Jersey Department of Transportation's mission is clear: to provide reliable, environmentally and socially responsible transportation and motor vehicle services to support and improve the safety and mobility of people and goods in New Jersey.

Today, transportation officials say its facilities are well on their way to being models of state-of-the-art security. But that was not always the case. Nearly eight years ago, New Jersey's Division of Motor Vehicle Services — commonly called the DMV — was reassigned to the Department of Transportation from the Division of Law and Public Safety.

At that time, it became apparent that the security at both DOT, and what is now the Motor Vehicle Commission's satellite offices, was inconsistent. While employees at both agencies' Trenton headquarters used cards to gain access into the building, employees at other locations used keys. Key replication was becoming a serious issue, with keys potentially falling into the wrong hands. People who weren't authorized to have keys might have been able to filter through buildings undetected and gain access to rooms and records.
