Award for Crick

The Francis Crick Institute has gained the Secured Environments award, presented by Chief Supt Nicholas Davis to the site at St Pancras in central London on November 13.

David Clark, Head of Security at the Crick said: ‘The Francis Crick Institute is delighted to have been awarded the Secured Environments Accreditation. The institute is a high risk organisation that demands only the very highest security standards. Being part of the Secured Environments scheme provides validation that our security measures are indeed proportionate with the risks associated with the organisation and that our staff, visitors and members of the public are in a safe and secure environment.

“The Secured Environments auditing process is professionally managed and very thorough. Refreshingly, a lot of emphasis is put on engaging with our stakeholders internally and externally to ensure that their views are heard and that they have an opportunity to give their very valued opinion on the security regime in place.

“Secured Environments is an ideal way for us to clearly demonstrate our commitment to protecting our people, assets and premises from those that may wish to cause harm.’

About the scheme

It’s run by the research consultancy Perpetuity for Police Crime Prevention Initiatives Ltd. Shopping centres, universities and hospitals are the other sorts of places to have gone through the audit. Visit
