CEIA Walk Through Metal Detector for embassy

The New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Tade (MFAT) acts in the world to build a safer, more prosperous, and more sustainable future for New Zealanders.

 They do this by building connections with and influencing other countries to advance New Zealand’s interests, project New Zealand values, and secure the outcomes that matter to New Zealand.

One of the key pillars of the Ministry’s offerings is to contribute to the well-being and security of New Zealanders by offering Kiwis the ability to live, do business, travel, and communicate more safely at home and offshore

MFAT contacted Tactical Solutions and wanted us to source and facilitate an install of a CEIA SMD 600 Plus metal detection system into a temporary High Commission location in London.

The security team wanted a Walk-Through Metal Detector that can detect small metal objects for persons entering the High Commission.

They have successfully implemented the CEIA SMD 600 Plus into other embassies around the world, including the Sri Lanka embassy which the Tactical Solutions team had successfully installed earlier this year and specifically wanted the SMD 600.

We have used the CEIA SMD 600 Plus extensively in our embassies all over the world.

We have members of staff where there is sometimes a language barrier and the ease of use of the SMD600PLUS makes it easy to train staff. 

The ease of calibration is also a big plus, so when the threat levels change, we can very easily change the sensitivity of the unit to match that threat level.

I like the large range of options that CEIA offers with the units and the capabilities to add other elements onto the unit like the Thermal Detection Unit (TDU) for COVID screening compliance.

Threat levels

With the increase in terrorist groups and violent extremists, the threat level advisory system is designed to give a broad indication of the likelihood of a terrorist attack.

In New Zealand the national terrorism threat level is under continual evaluation and can change at any time taking into account specific domestic considerations and relevant international threat factors. The threat level is also subject to a formal annual review.

Terrorism threat levels

Terrorism threat levels are a statement about the likelihood of a terrorist attack occurring. They reflect the assessment of the Combined Threat Assessment Group (CTAG) on the intent and capability of actors to conduct terrorist attacks.

There are five terrorism threat levels:

EXTREMEA terrorist attack is expected
HIGHA terrorist attack is assessed as highly likely
MEDIUMA terrorist attack is assessed as feasible and could well occur
LOWA terrorist attack is assessed as a realistic possibility
VERY LOWA terrorist attack is assessed as unlikely
