U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) delivered to Mobile Concepts’ factory two 53-foot trailers that with tractors for up fitting services. The exterior work included fabrication work for the belly boxes, installation of the 2-ton Bard A/C system, a new exterior lights and stowable aluminum steps with rails.
Mobile Concepts installed a number of technologies, including surveillance and an internet satellite system for proprietary finger printing/data verification. All electronics were provided by the Department of Homeland Security (GFE).
Mobile Concepts engineered and customized this space with sound-deadening materials to provide for the 30kw generator.
Mobile Concepts designed this Mobile Processing Center (MPC) so that up to 10 border agents can process detainees in a safe work environment. Each station has access to the DHS/CPB network with e3 processing, IAFIS, email, internet and a number of other law enforcement systems at their disposal.
Detainee seats are made of detention-grade steel, and include handcuff attachment. The D-rings allow for ankle restraints. Other restraint methods can be attached to the floor. Raise-coin commercial flooring is easy to maintain and clean.
The holding cell of the Mobile Processing Center includes three detention-grade benches with a recessed floor drain for easy cleaning. Mobile Concepts fabricated the one-piece welded holding cell system so there is zero access to fasteners or attachment points. A sealed surveillance camera allows the supervisor to monitor 24/7.
The supervisor can monitor all activities inside and outside the Mobile Processing Center via the camera monitoring equipment and communications equipment. Three gun cabinets are located in this space as well.
The Command-53-10WS was upfitted by Mobile Concepts to serve as a Mobile Processing Center (MPC) for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
The CBP delivered two 53-foot tractor trailers to our factory near Pittsburgh, Pa., for this project. This equipment was confiscated by the CBP at U.S. border crossings.
Also included in the contract were tech updates, which were performed to the CBP’s original MPC, which was upfitted by a competitor.
These command features 10 workstations, detainee seating, holding cell, command/control area, galley and storage.
Numerous surveillance and other electronic equipment was installed, including access to the DHS/CPB network with access to e3 Processing, IAFIS, email, internet and other law enforcement systems.
The MPC provides the agency the ability to monitor and process vehicular and pedestrian traffic at all United States borders and ports of entry. It can also be deployed as a relief vehicle to areas of the country that have been affected by natural disasters.
The government furnished equipment (GFE) included the tractors and trailers, plus all surveillance electronic monitoring and proprietary equipment.
