Secured by Design, the UK official Police flagship initiative, is working to reduce burglary and crime in the UK by designing out crime through physical security and processes.
They focus on crime prevention of homes and commercial premises and promote the use of security standards for a wide range of applications and products, achieving a reduction of crime by up to 75%.
