- Security TWENTY
- Women in Security
The June 2015 print issue of Professional Security is on desks – and you can read the online version free on this website.
Besides the regulars – Una Riley interviews the outgoing chief exec of the Security Industry Authority, Bill Butler; Jim Gannon discusses the recent short series on ITV of fraud investigations – we report on loss prevention (LP) at WH Smith, which has seen a drastic reduction in its LP people, but a new CCTV system. Una also reports for us from the latest Counter Terror Expo where she enjoyed a seminar on crisis management put together by the UK contract security arm of the facilities management company Sodexo.
We also bring you words and pictures from our most recent Security TWENTY 15 conference and exhibition, at Bristol in mid-April. Besides the usual pages on new products and services, ‘Spending the Budget’ case studies, and Roy Cooper’s gossip, we preview the annual IFSEC show at London Docklands.
We go to Derby to hear from retired police detective Rod Repton who thought he had semi-retired but he’s not – and go to Loughborough to the annual conference of AUCSO, the association of university chiefs of security. Speakers there included Tony Porter, the Surveillance Camera Commissioner. We speak to the Somerset-based trainers Profano. Last issue we introduced their online training for safe and secure travel; this issue we take part of the course.
We report also from that Counter Terror Expo, hearing from Heathrow Airport, and rail projects in London; and why the former Chelsea striker Peter Osgood is now in defence at Stamford Bridge. Plus we bring you such regulars as the book review page, directory of services and letters page, and pages about and for installers; and about networks and IP security.
