Ever wondered why Premier Security Consultants is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of Secured By Design products? Here’s why…
Independent academic research shows that new builds with Secured By Design crime prevention measures incorporated into the built environment and building security are up to 75 per-cent less likely to experience a burglary than comparable non-SBD properties.
All the evidence suggests that this figure is sustainable year-on-year and represents a significant reduction, especially as the vast majority of SBD developments are in social housing, some of which are in deprived areas.
Less crime helps free up police resources for other priorities, while Police Preferred Specification-accredited products can reduce repair and maintenance costs making money and services go further to improve the lives of local residents at a time of financial austerity.
The aim is to achieve sustainable reductions in crime through design and other approaches to enable people to live in a safer society.
