The Security Standard Behind Secured by Design

LPS 1175 issue 7 is the security standard behind Secured by Design; and is the official UK Police flagship initiative combining the principles of ‘designing out crime’, with physical security. 

What is Secured by Design? 

Established in 1989, Secured by Design (SBD) is the title for a group of national police projects focusing on the design and security for new and refurbished homes, commercial premises and car parks as well as the acknowledgement of quality security products and crime prevention projects. It supports the principles of ‘designing out crime’ through physical security and processes.

Secured by Design works with the industry and test houses like BRE/LPCB to create high-level security standards, responding to trends in crime, and has given input on a number of key standards.The principles of the scheme have been proven to reduce the risk of crime and the fear of crime.The Loss Prevention Standard LPS 1175 developed by LPCB, addresses risks not otherwise covered by existing national and international standards and codes. They are drafted by teams of experts and are reviewed and endorsed by independent stakeholders representing major interest groups. LPCB’s broad range of standards are designed to simulate a variety of circumstances. This could be the likely length of attack, the tools or methods used, or even the likelihood of a stealth attack. Whatever the situation, an effective physical security solution should deter or delay an attacker and should be complimented by a suitable means of detection. This is to allow the response (whether that be electronic or human) to reach the scene before the attacker is successful.
