The second UK Security Expo is at Olympia, London on 29-30 November, supported by the Home Office, Nactso and CPNI. Come along to stand B86 for a chat with our security team.
The event includes conferences at which Gavin Jones and Bob Stevens from BRE Global will be speaking and raising the profile of LPCB listed companies. Visit here to attend and here for information on exhibiting.
Gavin Jones and Bob Stevens are both speaking on highly topical subjects. At the Designing out Terrorism conference on Thursday 30 November, Gavin will speak on Planners, The Planning System and Counter Terrorism.
Synopsis: Crime prevention and counter terrorism protective security are material planning considerations. Government planning policy is set out in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), while guidance for local authority planning officers and developers is available in Planning Practice Guidance (PPG). This session examines whether the planning system is being used to its maximum potential and whether appropriate measures are being incorporated in developments which are the most likely targets of terrorists. Gavin will examine if, within a context of constrained public-sector resources, there are opportunities for improved security outcomes without compromising overall development quality and slowing the development approvals process.
At the Protecting Crowded Places conference on 30 November, Bob will speak on The challenges of specifying explosion and bullet-resistant products for current and emerging threats.
Synopsis: Recent worldwide events demonstrate that criminals and terrorists continue to use explosive devices and firearms to kill and injure innocent people. The presentation will review existing national and international explosion and bullet resistant product standards in the context of current and emerging threats, highlighting the challenges faced by manufacturers and specifiers when deciding the most appropriate standard to use. Issues of misapplication of standards for scenarios outside their existing scope and the potential pitfalls that may result will also be discussed.
