You can help to protect your premises by taking a few sensible precautions. The following points are a list of considerations and are by no means exhaustive.

1. Premises should be suitable staffed with a prominent management presence that can make themselves identifiable to police (in the event of an incursion).

2. Security officers, where possible, should have a visible presence on premises.

3. In the days leading up to an event ensure all staffs are fully briefed.
