PUBLIC SECTOR BUILDING SECURITY
Security in these buildings is vital when the safety and interests of the unprotected are at stake. The physical protection of any of these buildings should be designed in accordance with the level of risk posed balanced by the buildings aesthetics.
A recent study “The Future of Urban Design” has highlighted the importance of striking the right balance between security and aesthetics when securing public spaces, particularly those of historic interest.
Specific public places such as libraries and museums need to ensure they have the best security resources available. There are many different layers of security which would need to be addressed and it is widely recognised that security management within the sector is complex and wide- ranging.
