Places of Worship Protective Security Fund now worth £1.6 million
Following the tragic Christchurch mosque shootings in March, the UK Government has increased its Places of Worship Protective Security Fund to £1.6 million. This is double the amount available last year and is a clear indication that vulnerable sites are actively looking to install additional security solutions against extremist behaviour. Furthermore, applicants are no longer required to prove previous experience of hate crime.
The application process is only open until 31st August. So, if you look after such sites, you may be interested in reviewing your security measure.
Consider these three options and take advantage of the fund.
Keeping you safe…
The NEXUS LOCKDOWN SYSTEM has been designed as a rapidly deployable system comprising internal and external wireless call points with sounders and beacons. No wiring is required meaning that a full system can be installed in a matter of hours to minimise disruption.
When one NEXUS unit is activated, it will trigger all units in wireless range. Using a proven secure mesh protocol, an alert or lockdown message will sound with a visible flashing beacon. The recording can be customised or you can use our standard lockdown message. An email alert can also be set up. In turn, this can be forwarded to relevant personnel when the system is activated.
Security and safety…
If you already have a lockdown system and protocol, you may want to consider additional security. For example, being able to follow and monitor inside and externally around your building. Uniview and the IndigoVision ranges offer such security surveillance. From 4 camera kits with exceptional features to high end security systems. Call us for a demonstration or more information on this option.
If you’d like a system that allows you to send “live” announcements take a look at the Magna Public address system.
Take advantage of the fund before it ends.
