Designing Out Crime: Safe Spaces Self Accreditation

post-image 20th April 2016

SBEG,  South Bank BID & other parties have been working in partnership with London First in accordance with Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC)’s Business Crime Strategy to develop a tool to be used by businesses to assess their own security regimes. After much editing via user feedback and trialling by selected members of the South Bank BID the document has now been finalised and released for use. This survey tool is being widely circulated via businesses, other BID’s and agencies throughout London to actively encourage personnel to accurately assess their safety and security policies and procedures and where necessary adapt their resilience and continuity plans.

Tony Read, Head of Security at the National Theatre and Chair of the South Bank Business Watch said the following about the scheme:

‘I’m pleased to announce that we are supporting MOPAC’s Business Crime Strategy in the delivery of the Safe Spaces Self Accreditation Scheme.  The tool was designed by London First in collaboration with SBEG, SBBW, Safer London, Met Police,  and others, to assist small/medium sized businesses to better understand and improve the safety, security and resilience of their business.  The tool is, however, useful for all and it can easily form part of your annual security health check.’
