Maintaining a friendly and welcoming atmosphere in a safe and secure environment can be a difficult balancing act for any public space especially during times of heightened alert.
The latest protective security advice to counter terrorism; tackling important areas such as low cost/no cost security mitigation, identity verification, business continuity, anti-social behaviour and much more.
2016 and 2017 was a game changer for the UK Police and Security Services as they tackled a wide range of threats and disruptive activity within both the physical and virtual world, as well as the aftermath of the incidents in London and Manchester.
Whilst this complex and challenging work continues, and the threat level remains at severe, it is vital that we continue to prioritise the security and safety of our retail and public spaces.
Over the past four years, the Security and Safer Shopping Committee’s focus has quite rightly been on counter terrorism (CT) in response to the threat level and 2017 attacks. The threat level remains unchanged and CT will continue to be an important area for the committee to cover. By broadening out the committee membership, the topics covered will include other areas such as health and safety.
