SBD is a police-owned organisation that works on behalf of the Police Service throughout the UK to deliver a wide range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives.
SBD have many partner organisations, ranging from the Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government and the Police Service through to local authorities, housing associations, developers and manufacturers and work closely with standards and certification bodies to ensure that their publicly available standards actually meet the needs of the police and public alike.
Products must be subjected to vigorous testing and auditing by an accredited third party organisation before being allowed to carry the SBD logo – this is the only way for companies to obtain police accreditation for security related products in the UK.
A number of SBD member companies were at the Expo, including Burton Safes, CLD Fencing Systems, Dormakaha, ERA Home Security, Frontier Pitts, Gallagher Security, HERAS, Jacksons Fencing, Meesons A.I, Lochrin Bain, Selectaglaze, Selectamark & Warrior Doors.
