Closing the Barn Door: Dealing with Security Issues is an AASLH Technical Leaflet. AASLH Technical Leaflets are brief, practical guides on how to do history. Technical Leaflet #220 by Stevan P. Layne, CPP, CIPM toutlines the standard safety and security measures a museum should take to prevent theft and other losses, with particular emphasis on daily closing procedures. When staff in a museum environment feel safe it is easy to become complacent with measures of security. A daily closing checklist guides historical institutions in "closing the barn door" safely each day. Additionally, Stevan P. Layne, CEO for Layne Consultants International, emphasizes the need for proper screening of employees, affordable surveillance and alarm systems, and how to deal with unruly patrons.
