Regarding the special
potential of ports located on international coastlines such as Makoran Sea
(Iran) for goods and human smuggling, national level of coastline security is
very important. They can play a significant role in the development of power
and security. Based on military reviews and analyses, police location and
monitoring field view in the coastlines are strategic issues in modern security
development. This research proposes a tool for development of coastal roads and
coastal walking routes in the deployment of police. The main focuses are
monitoring field view and accessibility to the strategic coastline. GIS tool
plays an essential role in producing important security maps. Chabahar Port in
Iran, as the most important port of Makoran Sea, has been selected as the study
area, regarding its strategic role in the national economy and security. Research
method focused on these major axes: successful establishment of police stations
in shoreline for increasing monitoring and coastal security and suitable patrol
of patrol police car in the coastal roads. This study adopts a scientific
approach to the analysis of the present and future development in urban and
security planning in coastal towns in the national and regional levels.
