Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative, works with Police Forces around the UK, and many other organisations, to achieve sustainable reductions in crime to help people live in a safer society.
We seek to incorporate proven crime prevention techniques into the layout and landscaping, such as to increase natural surveillance, limit excessive through movement and create defensible space. Also, we want the key features that make up the physical security of buildings, such as doors, windows and locks, to be to our Police Preferred Specification standard, which requires regular re-testing and production audits over time and goes beyond the one-off testing required by the Building Regulation in England.
Independent research has shown that buildings that include crime prevention techniques and accredited products are up to 75% less likely to be burgled.
The UK'S only permanent venue for independent Advice & Support.
Open Tuesday – Sunday, 10am – 5.30pm
