The Secured by Design Award for Developers

The Developers Award is a certificate given to building developments which, following consultation with local Crime Prevention Design Advisors (also Architectural Liaison Officers), are built to SBD guidelines and so reduce the opportunity for crime. Applications should be made to the Crime Prevention Design Advisor (CPDA) (or ALO). They will require copies of plans and schedules of security specifications.  Read the requirements in the Design Guide

It is important to contact your local Crime Prevention Design Advisor at the earliest opportunity, preferably at the design stage to ensure correct standards are in place.
