What is Secured by Design?
Established in 1989, Secured by Design (SBD) is a national Police initiative focusing on the principle of ‘designing out crime’ through physical security and processes.
Secured by Design works with the industry to create high-level security standards, responding to trends in crime, and has given input on a number of key standards . The principles of the scheme have been proven to reduce the risk of crime and the fear of crime.
