Ongoing commitment to deterring crime


One of Scotland’s largest construction companies, City Building (Glasgow) LLP, have renewed their membership with Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative. SBD is the only way for companies to obtain police recognition for security-related products in the UK.

Secured by Design (SBD) operates an accreditation scheme on behalf of the UK Police Service for products or services that have met recognised security standards. These products or services – which must be capable of deterring or preventing crime – are known as being of a ‘Police Preferred Specification’.

Police Crime Prevention Initiatives (Police CPI) is a police owned organisation which delivers a wide range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives across the UK. The extensive Police CPI portfolio covers a variety of crime prevention initiatives, of which Secured by Design is the most well-known, with all initiatives designed to keep the public safe from crime and to reduce the demand on the police service.

Alan Burns Executive Director of City Building said, “The ongoing partnership between City Building and Secured by Design has played a vital role in the protection and safety of all City Building projects.”
City Building’s renewed membership with the scheme represents an ongoing commitment to deterring and preventing crime and antisocial behaviour surrounding City Building sites. We will also create tangible benefits to both City Building as a company and the wider community that we serve.

SBD National Lead Kenny McHugh said, “I am delighted that City Building have renewed their Secured by Design membership. I am looking forward to working with them over the coming years”.
