SBD Senior Development Officer Kenny McHugh said: “It has been a pleasure to renew Sidey’s membership with Secured by Design, they have been a member for over a decade and have a large range of products which reach the Police Preferred Specification. I am looking forward to working with them going forward”.

George McKenna, Sidey’s Manufacturing Director said “We are delighted to continue our working relationship with Secured by Design. The SBD initiative and accreditation allows Sidey to manufacture products for our customers that provide extra security and peace of mind, something we know is important in all the sectors that we serve.”

SBD is a police-owned organisation that works on behalf of the Police Service throughout the UK to deliver a wide range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives.

SBD plays a significant crime prevention role in the planning process to design out crime in a wide range of building sectors. It has achieved some significant success including one million homes built to SBD standards with reductions in crime of up to 87%.

SBD have many partner organisations, ranging from the Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government and the Police Service through to local authorities, housing associations, developers and manufacturers and work closely with standards and certification bodies to ensure that their publicly available standards actually meet the needs of the police and public alike.

Products must be subjected to vigorous testing and auditing by an accredited third party organisation before being allowed to carry the SBD logo – this is the only way for companies to obtain police accreditation for security related products in the UK.
