Indiana Statehouse wants Turnstile Security Doors for 873K

The Indiana Department of Administration wants to install turnstile security doors at Statehouse entryways for the price of $873,000. IDA Commissioner Jessica Robertson says the new doors will increase safety and help prevent unauthorized access to the Statehouse.

“We recognize people need access into these buildings and we are very cognizant of the delicate balance between access and security,” she said in an emailed statement. “We are pursuing the most effective and efficient solutions to position technology or security personnel at high access points of our campus. Campus safety is a daily concern and we are taking measures to ensure the buildings and the people in them are protected.”

The doors are part of a $1.2 million initiative to increase Statehouse security, and would allow only one person at a time to pass through after swiping their badge.
