SIA Violence reduction workshop: Good security making towns safer

SIA CEO, Alan Clamp
SIA CEO, Alan Clamp

The SIA is running a series of events across the UK to promote violence reduction measures within the night-time economy. The first one is on the 25th of April in Ipswich.

The SIA want to bring people together to discuss local initiatives, share experiences and good practice to prevent harm of security operatives and the public. The aim of these events is to:

  • Share good practice of successful multi-agency violence reduction initiatives/approaches
  • Develop a shared understanding that violence reduction includes reducing violence against licensed operatives and so improve the reporting of incidents
  • Raise standards of safe restraint by introducing new guidance material for security operatives
  • Share best practice for measuring the success of violence reduction initiatives

At each event those attending will hear from representatives of the Police, local authorities and town centre initiatives.

The briefings are FREE to attend and will take place at the following locations:

Ipswich – 25 April 2017
Suffolk Constabulary Police Headquarters
Portal Avenue
Martlesham Heath

Police Headquarters is located adjacent to the A12 with access from the A1214 (Martlesham to Ipswich Road).

Brighton – 11 May 2017
Manchester – 17 May 2017

More events will be added.
