Secured By Design Certification for Fog Cannon

Protect Global UK : 23 December, 2010  (New Product)
Business property protection specialist achieves Secured by Design status from the ACPO for the company's Fog Cannon
Protect Fog Cannon products have recently been awarded the much sort after 'Secured by Design' licence run by the Association of Chief Police Officers in the UK.

"This award is crucial as it demonstrates to the public that Protect UK products really do work at reducing break-ins' and the threat of robbery to their business property" comments Barry Harper retired Chief Inspector of Nottinghamshire Police.

The 'Secured by Design' licensing scheme was set up in 1989 by the Association of Chief Police Officers and is linked to the governments objectives of creating secure environments for people to live and work.

"Having served 30 years in the police force I am acutely aware of the difficulties local authorities face every day in the fight against crime." Barry explains. "A product that actually expels the robbers before they get chance to steal or do damage is definitely high on the police wish list. As far as I can see there are no other products on the market as efficient as the Protect products at delivering high impact to both the business owner and the police."

Matthew Robinson manager of Protect UK is thrilled with the license. "Our fog cannon products are also doing a great job protecting shop assistants in jewellers against armed robbers who are targeting this sector in broad daylight because of the recent jump in gold prices!"

The 'Secured by Design' scheme has been cited as a key model in the Office of Deputy Prime Ministers guide 'Safer Places - The Planning System & Crime Prevention' and in the Home Office's 'Crime Reduction Strategy 2008-11'.
"Criminals are like a pack of hungry wolves coming from miles around when easy pickings are found. Equally when a property is known to be difficult it will be left alone," says retired Chief Inspector Barry Harper, "The Police have been aware of this evidence for many years and know the value of prevention is priceless."

With the economy in such flux unemployment is on the rise resulting in more people turning to crime.

"The 'Secured by Design' licence couldn't have come at a better time for Protect UK" says Matthew Robinson. "This license says to our installers and their customers that Protect UK products are far superior to any other fog cannon on the market today, and that Protect UK take crime prevention extremely seriously."
