March 2018 issue

Now on desks is the March 2018 print issue of Professional Security magazine; which comes with the annual DVR-NVR supplement covering the latest in digital and network recorders, writes editor Mark Rowe.

The main mag features Mark Babington, the CCTV and security man at Travel for West Midlands (the Birmingham-based public transport body, formerly Centro), who was among the speakers at the first Security TWENTY event of 2018, ST18 Midlands, at Nottingham last month. The TfWM control room is taking on local government monitoring work for councils around the Midlands, besides doing monitoring of bus and tram stations and related sites such as car parking. We also report from a training event in a north London nightclub under a railway arch that was the venue for a realistic police and ambulance training morning to test and demonstrate response to an acid attack on the dance floor.

Also featured are regular columnists Steve Collins (on being safe in hotels) and Mike Gillespie (on the necessary connections between physical and cyber security), Jim Gannon on the latest official England and Wales crime stats, and Una Riley, who rounds off her interview with a guarding company MD. Among the topics featured are counter-terrorism, social media as a source of intelligence, the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) that’s due to come into force across the European Union in May – particularly how it relates to private investigators, as seen at a recent training as put on by the Association of British Investigators (ABI) – and modern slavery.

The regular features are there – such as the four pages of ‘Spending the Budget’, and four pages of new products.
