Secured by Design at the MLA Expo

Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative, will be at the MLA Expo at the Telford International Centre from 4th – 6th October 2019.

Run by the Master Locksmiths Association, Europes’ largest locksmith exhibition is seen as the security event of the year for the locksmith & security industry, a trade show that can’t be missed.

The importance for buildings of all types to be physically secure to deter criminal activity, reduce crime and keep people safe is why SBD has worked with businesses, the construction industry and standards authorities at home and abroad for many years. This led us to develop a product based police accreditation scheme some 20 years ago – the Police Preferred Specification.

Our Police Preferred Specification ensures that products not only have been tested to relevant security standards but also are fully certified by an independent, third-party certification body accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). The Police Preferred Specification requires regular re-tests and inspections of the manufacturer’s production facility to ensure the correct processes, and product quality and performance, remain at the highest levels.
