NEW YORK, Sept. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- President Obama and his staff are feeling safer this week during his participation in the United Nations Security Council Meetings in New York City, knowing they are protected by Defenshield SafePoint™ units as part of their security detail.
Several SafePoint Mobile Security Stations are deployed in key locations, providing an additional layer of ballistic protection for world leaders attending the meetings. The SafePoints are wrapped in Defenshield's exclusive Camography™ which gives the units a natural, aesthetically appealing appearance in government building environments.
World leaders are in New York this week for the U.N.'s General Assembly Session. Other key leaders are also being protected by the Defenshield SafePoint units.
The U.S. Marshals Service in charge of the arrangements will re-allocate the units after the current U.N. Security Council Meeting to other uses within the Federal Court System throughout the city.
