Security operations reorganized at Detroit convention center
(3/2/20) - Security operations at Detroit’s downtown convention center are being reorganized to improve safety at the venue.
The TCF Center says in-house security staff scheduling has been expanded to three shifts, each with supervisors dedicated to specific events and building security outposts.
A new dispatch command center has also been created that's staffed seven days a week, 365 days a year with TCF Center security officers.
And the center’s closed-circuit television system has been expanded.
ASM Global/TCF Center General Manager Claude Molinari says security staff now are “able to see almost everything happening around” the 55-acre property.”
The TCF Center was formerly named the Cobo Center.
