SBD Development Officer Hazel Goss said: “I have known Theam Security for a long time, first working with them when I was a Police Designing Out Crime Officer and so it has been a real joy to be working with them again as a the local SBD Development Officer. It’s fantastic that they are continuing their affiliation with us”.
Robert Meath, Managing Director of Theam Security said: ““It is vitally important to us to ensure that any SBD product is installed correctly. Having seen installations in the past with logo’s indicating an SBD/LPCB product is fitted. Only to find after closer inspection, it had too few or inappropriate fixings for the substrate, or in some cases the wrong product specified. I felt that some kind of standard should be in place for installation, so customers could feel confident that the products they had purchased would do the job required.
“All of our installers are DBS cleared and attend regular training sessions to ensure we maintain the high standards of installation we have always set ourselves.
“SBD is the only real quality body that enables quality companies like us who operate in the physical side of the industry to stand apart from others who don’t work to any kind of procedures or standards”.
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.
