What is Secured by Design ?

Secured by Design is the UK Police flagship initiative supporting the principles of designing out crime.

Secured by Design (SBD) is primarily an initiative to encourage the building industry to adopt crime prevention measures to assist in reducing the opportunity for crime and the fear of crime, creating a safer and more secure environment. Secured by Design supports one of the Government’s key planning objectives – the creation of secure, quality places where people wish to live and work.

Licensed Products – Secured by Design licensed company status is awarded to those companies producing security products, including doors and windows, which pass standards and tests nominated by the police service as “Police Preferred Specification”.
