Applications are made for passenger safety and security.

In line with passenger safety and security, the organization aims to ensure the peace and security of passengers and staff, to increase the level and security of passengers and personnel, to focus on preventive measures, to benefit more from technology and to ensure the participation of passengers and personnel in security measures by improving the level of real and perceptual security.

In this context, the security measures implemented by the Sehir Hatlari consist of three main components:

In the direction of the prohibition of access to scaffolding and sea vehicles with the materials such as flammable, explosive, explosive materials that are being implemented from the establishment of the City Lines Inc. to the present day, security personnel carry out detecting, searching and checking the bags with the detector. Security personnel are conducting top search, bag and package control with detectors in the direction of the prohibition of entry of scaffolding and sea vehicles with the materials such as flammable, explosive, explosive materials that are being implemented from the establishment of Sehir Hatlari to the present day.

Apart from the security personnel working as civilian in the scaffoldings and the security personnel at the stations, civilian and official police officers of the Istanbul Security Directorate also work in coordination.

In emergency situations, along with the security guards, scaffolding supervisors, ship personnel and cleaning staff at the scaffold are responsible for controlling the area they are in.

Personnel who will carry out operations such as extinguishing and evacuation in a possible emergency are determined by the distribution of tasks. The exercises and trainings carried out within the framework of the duties and responsibilities of the personnel are also repeated in certain periods.

Security

Barriers, turnstiles, lighting systems and warning signs are placed at required points in order to provide passenger safety and security in the pier areas and sea vessels.
