The latest print issue of Professional Security Magazine has as its cover article views on the latest official developments to tackle business crime. Moves by the Met Police in London have been welcomed – but will they be enough, and can the authorities – who have long treated businesses poorly when they report crime, even senior figures admit – delver?
Also featured is a case study from Unipart Security of a trial of a drone for monitoring, as used at an autumn drive-in cinema screening in Oxford; work by a property company on ranking cities by resilience, to guide its investment decisions worldwide; a look at the embarrassing shortcomings of VIP security in the United States, after the head of the service that provides close protection for President Obama and his family resigned; and a digest of the latest research from Prof Martin Gill – this time about excellence. What is it, when those buying and offering security services are asked?
Prof Martin Gill’s also in the November magazine as the mighty Handbook of Security, whose second edition edited by him has come out, is reviewed.
We conclude a look at the University of Leeds. In our October issue we featured how the uni hosted the opening of this summer’s Tour de France; this time we go through the same safety awareness training that the student freshers are given – and we find on a night out in Leeds city centre how useful it really is.
We cover also retail loss prevention, covering the October Retail Fraud conference in Leicester. Plus there’s all the usual pages of news, new products, ‘spending the budget’, and views from Jim Gannon and Una Riley.
