Manchester Arena security searches under scrutiny following suicide bombing

Terror attack Security screening at the Manchester Arena, which was the scene of a suicide bombing last night, has come in for criticism from visitors. Among the criticisms aired on Twitter were comments that you could easily walk in with things under a coat , while several said their bags were not even checked. Entertainment and sporting venues in the UK are now urgently reviewing security procedures.

At least 22 people, many of them children, have so far being confirmed as fatalities and 59 injured in the attack at a pop concert in the city. The events occurred at about 10.30pm on Monday 22 May at the end of a concert by the American singer Ariana Grande. Chaos The attack took place in the foyer, leaving hundreds of people fleeing in terror and confusion. Many children and young teenagers were separated from their parents in the ensuing chaos. The injured had wounds consistent with shrapnel injury, according to medics. A nail bomb may have been used in the attack, as according to a witness nuts and bolts were strewn on the floor of the foyer. Greater Manchester police have confirmed that they believe the bombing was the work of a single man armed with an improvised explosive device. The attacker is among the dead. The investigation into the attack involves the police counter-terrorism network and Britain s domestic security service, MI5.

Britain s prime minister, Theresa May, said: We are working to establish the full details of what is being treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack. All our thoughts are with the victims and the families of those who have been affected. Flags outside Downing Street flew at half mast. All political parties have suspended campaigning for the general election, which is less than three weeks away. May chaired an emergency meeting of the government s crisis committee, Cobra, on Tuesday morning. Chief constable Ian Hopkins said: We have been treating this as a terrorist incident and we believe that while the attack last night was conducted by one man, the priority is to establish whether he was acting alone or as part of a network. The death toll makes the attack in Manchester the worst of its kind since the bombings in 2005, where several suicide bombers detonated explosives they were carrying in backpacks in several busy London locations including a bus and tube stations, killing 52 people.

Video surveillance for todays seniors

The lifespan of the average man and woman has increased over the years, due to advances in medicine and improved nutritional standards. Seniors who would have been considered elderly only decades ago, are now still vibrant and living independently. Even senior citizens who live at home with the assistance of a nurse or in home care aid, can live life to the fullest.

Of course, this doesn t mean that family and friends don t worry about them. On the contrary, people in their 80s and 90s and those individuals lucky enough to live past the 100 mark may need guidance. Any lack of balance or simple fall can cause a hospital stay, with a broken hip likely to create further medical issues. Forgetfulness and hearing loss makes otherwise diligent seniors forget to take their medicine or hear the ring of a doorbell. Seniors and technology Teens and young adults have no problem living their lives in front of the camera. Their generation enjoys being videotaped whenever and wherever they may be. However, this is generally not the case for senior citizens. Many older people still fear technology and feel uncomfortable with video equipment in their homes, no matter how unobtrusive these cameras may be. Young adults try to explain to their parents how crucial a camera may be to their senior loved ones health, security and well-being.

It s always important to discuss the subject thoroughly, before making any purchases. Surveillance monitoring equipment is not only a definite investment, but at no time do you want a parent or grandparent to think that they are being spied on unnecessarily. Less invasive forms of video monitoring You never want to make anyone uncomfortable in their own home. This is especially true of those people who believe that someone will be watching them in various stages of undress or when using the bathroom. Luckily there are monitors which function as sensors, simply alerting a loved one that something is amiss in the household. Monitoring systems do use traditional video cameras, so no footage is obtained from the home. These wireless and diminutive sensors are placed where they can detect motion or a change in normal patterns of activity. When this occurs, a contact is immediately notified. You can choose how messages are sent confidentially via telephone, email, text message and mobile app.

Wireless motion sensors An excellent example of how these sensors are employed, concerns their usage in determining if someone has taken their daily medicine or meals. Sensors are small enough to attach to regular household items like pillboxes and television remotes. You can additionally attach sensors to the refrigerator or interior door, alerting a loved one that their senior is home and on schedule. Let s say that a senior has opened a front or back door at an unusual hour of the night. Their family member or guardian would be alerted at once. This information is particularly urgent when seniors are completely alone or live with a spouse yet suffer from dementia. Once alerted, a loved one can contact the police, a neighbor or rush over on their own if possible. Home surveillance videos Video technology is routinely used to monitor homes, schools, shopping centers and commercial buildings. More than one person has discovered that their pet was running amuck through their house or that an employee has been stealing from their place of business.

In severe situations, acts of child abuse and crimes committed in bright daylight have been uncovered. Today s video cameras are stylishly small and easily set up around the home. All that s required is an on-site wi-fi system so images can be sent directly through the Internet. The capability of your chosen video equipment will vary greatly, depending upon its cost and complexity. However, newer home based surveillance systems will operate with amazing accuracy. Real-time video monitoring saves lives Instead of spying on seniors, loved ones are now able to see and hear if an emergency is happening in real-time. Night vision cameras allow for surveillance during the night and early morning hours when illnesses often take lives. Sound detection features let loved ones hear if a senior is calling out for help or someone else is prowling the premises. More complicated video surveillance systems come with a variety of other options.

These include motion based sensors and audio components that give viewers a chance to speak directly to the subject under surveillance. You can additionally record videos and save them to the Cloud, so they can be reviewed more intensely later. Peace of mind and security Using simple mounts with adjustable angles, monitoring equipment literally blends in with any d cor. Seniors can go about their lives in their own home, with the knowledge that a medical emergency or act of crime will be reported as it plays out. Should a senior citizen not remember exactly what happened, the video feed can replay to catch the incident in its entirety. For those seniors who require a caregiver or housekeeper, video surveillance cameras provide an ongoing record of their employment. Should an act of abuse or theft take place, it is likely to be captured in full view of the cameras. This aids families and the authorities. Just as Nanny Cams have revolutionized child care, home video surveillance can transform how seniors live.

While some people might find the presence of a video camera intrusive, the eye of the camera is really their friend. Better yet, family members can now monitor these video feeds right from their mobile devices giving them a chance to advocate on behalf of their loved ones.

SIA Badge – Get your security badge in three easy steps …

Once you have completed your course and passed your exams, you will become a qualified Security professional. This entitles you to a certificate demonstrating your right to work in the industry, as well as the SIA’s licence stating you are a qualified professional. You also become an SIA badge holder, which shows everyone that you are a qualified, SIA-accredited, security worker.

The SIA security badge is all-important and as a SIA badge holder it is important that you have it on you at all times when working in a security setting. This matters because should a spot check be carried out and you are not wearing or carrying your SIA badge, you will be in contravention of SIA regulations. In most elements of your job as a security professional, the SIA security badge should be worn in a prominent position on your clothing. This will demonstrate that you are a qualified security professional, which may be important if an individual member of the public is looking to report suspicious or criminal activity to someone in authority. Professionals working in the Close Protection1 sector are exempted from this requirement due to the frequently confidential nature of their work and the need to have a degree of anonymity. The same applies to store detectives, whose role is often a plain-clothes one which necessitates being close to members of the public without attracting undue attention that may alert a potential lawbreaker.

Once you have received your SIA badge it is essential that you follow best practice as it relates to SIA badge holders. Aside from the aforementioned exceptions, all operatives who are on duty must wear the SIA security badge where it can be seen. The only other exceptions are where you have reported the SIA badge lost or stolen (in which case you will normally be able to request a replacement free of charge, so long as it is not a regular occurrence), or if it has been returned to the SIA for updating or replacement. If your SIA badge has been lost or stolen it is essential that you tell the police and the SIA as soon as you can this enables them to be on the lookout for anyone posing as an SIA Licence2 holder using your SIA badge, a circumstance which without your prompt action could result in trouble for you. Should you be convicted of a crime, or cautioned by the police about your actions, it is equally vital that you tell the SIA. A simple police matter may not be too damaging to your right to hold an SIA security badge, but if you fail to report it you run the very real risk of losing your SIA badge for disciplinary reasons.

It’s not worth ignoring this requirement in the long run, particularly as many convictions or cautions arise from non-violent, non-threatening activity. Getting it out in the open will allow the SIA to process it and you to move on. As with all other forms of photographic ID, it is not acceptable to deface or change your licence. Even if this is done innocently, it opens up the possibility of your licence having been tampered with for very non-innocent reasons including fraud, and therefore invalidates it, rendering any licensed activity that you take part in illegal. Should your licence become damaged, the procedure you should follow is the same as for lost and stolen licences advise the SIA and request a replacement, returning your current SIA badge if asked to do so.

As you can never be aware when a spot check is to occur, it is simply common sense to always wear your SIA badge whenever you are engaged in licensed activity. There are penalties for working without displaying your licence (or for failing to carry it in the case of covert security staff), so it is not worth being lackadaisical when it comes to carrying it. Spot checks are designed to catch people illegally working without a licence, and bringing yourself under suspicion on this front is extremely unwise, particularly when you are actually a licence holder. The circumstances in which your SIA security badge will be revoked are:

If you are not the person to whom the licence should have been issued if someone has posed as you or vice versa

You do not have the qualifications that you claimed when applying

You are convicted, cautioned or warned for a relevant offence particularly violent offences, drugs offences or similar

You become ineligible, or never were eligible, to work in the UK. IShould your licence be revoked, you will be informed in writing beforehand, with a letter outlining why it has been revoked and inviting your response.

If you feel that the decision is unjust you can respond within 21 days detailing inaccuracies and any possible mitigating information.

After the decision is finalised you have another 21 days to appeal it, providing evidence to support your appeal

Invasion of privacy or crime-fighting boost: Should the public police have greater access to security systems operated by private police?

Invasion Of Privacy Or Crime-fighting Boost: Should The Public Police Have Greater Access To Security Systems Operated By Private Police?

Police forces and a complex CCTV network work in conjunction to keep people and property safe. However, what happens when a CCTV system functions inside a privately-owned building that is leased by a business? Security personnel who man the building have to communicate with the police to catch intruders.

However, police don t have access to these privately owned networks, which is where the confusion begins. What if there were a change in legislation that permitted police and other law enforcement agencies to access cameras from a central control point? If the police do not have access to these private buildings and systems, how are they to know what happens behind these closed doors? What if security personnel break laws by removing intruders by force? Surely the intruders are breaking the law in the first place and need to be reprimanded, with or without police consent, seeing as security guards are being paid to guard grounds? There is a lot of back and forth here with what s right and wrong and what s legal and illegal. This is where having one voice could solve all arguments, but as long as there is private CCTV I don t think one voice can solve it all. Lack arrest powers Private police are employed by non-government operations and can be security guards, patrol persons, detectives, ex-police, and sometimes off-duty police officers. Private police focus more on preventive methods and deterring crime rather than catching and punishing criminals.

This is because they lack arrest powers, although they have the right to make a citizen s arrest. In the US there is even evidence that suggests private police can provide security services more cost effectively than the public police force Private policing around the world is growing because the crime threat evolves over time with technology and some people like to have personal say and control other their own establishments, with a 24/7 operation to give them assurance that may otherwise not be possible. In the US there is even evidence that suggests private police can provide security services more cost effectively than the public police force. Tight budgets within public policing mean the public police may take longer to access the newest security technologies. Public police agencies are sometimes bound by laws that don t apply to private police. This has its pros and cons. Although private police may be able to, for instance, carry a gun, the public police, though hindered by additional constraints, are given a very clear idea of the boundaries of what they are permitted and not permitted to do. Some people, on the other hand, see private policing as a wealthy person s protection and feel there is one rule for the rich and one rule for the poor. But even if this is true, if you choose to spend your money on these services then who should tell you it s wrong?

Used in the legal or correct manner then all should be well. Having said that, if you are spending your own money on these services, surely you would want grey areas resolved in legal documents because you never know what could really happen. If acts of crime take place you need to have it dealt with in the right way. Grey area If private police their boundaries then there is a chance that no one will ever know as, after all, the public police don t have access to private systems. This can cause yet greater problems within the grey area. If public police see private police blatantly acting above their power, even though they are manning private property, they obviously cannot permit laws to be broken. I assume that this only makes matters more confusing and builds up hostility between public and private police forces. If legislation ever changes to grant public police forces access to private police force work, there will always be a need for flexibility Clear guidelines on the scope and boundaries of the role of private police need to be set out and followed to create a productive partnership and prevent hostility. For this to happen there needs to be a singular, unbiased voice of reason that takes into accounts all possibilities and all sides of the story/law.

Certain requirements must be met for someone to be employed as a private police member. If there is to be some degree of overlap and collaboration between the two spheres then it s only right that both sides should be qualified and professional. If legislation ever changes to grant public police forces access to private police force work, there will always be a need for flexibility. This is because someone who employs a private police force won t want the public force to have access. However, most of the general public would probably think that the public force has the right to access private force work. If legislation changes, is this an invasion of privacy or a major boost to the fight against crime? Employers of private police team will naturally see it as an invasion of privacy. This is not to say that private teams are routinely covering up criminal activity or that they are overstepping their legal boundaries. But such measures could be seen as a boost to tackling crime because public police have more powers of arrest, so can do more with the information they access.

Heads of public police forces would need to come together to pitch in their own thoughts and opinions. On top of this, contact would need to be made with private police teams to reach a compromise that all parties are happy with that would see a trial run in which public police could access private systems. If everyone was happy with the outcome, the arrangement could become more permanent. The author, Simon Parker, is a director of Minerva.

Many housing associations could be in breach of Data Protection Act because of poor quality images

More than a quarter of housing associations admit that footage generated by their CCTV systems might be unfit for the purpose for which they installed cameras: identifying intruders, vandals and other suspected criminals. That s the headline finding of a report commissioned by Cloudview, which provides cloud-based video surveillance storage solutions. CCTV has come a long way since the days of grainy, black and white images, with 4K and even 7K models now available on the market.

The revelation that poor image quality should affect so many housing associations chosen as the survey subject because they rely heavily on CCTV systems to protect residents and assets therefore comes as something of a surprise. Housing associations, which Cloudview believes could realise cost-efficiencies and operational benefits by digitising assets and federating data, use CCTV to deter and catch burglars, vandals and antisocial behaviour in what are often low deprived communities. Data protection breach The Data Protection Act (DPA) states that data recorded for the purpose of identifying suspected criminals must be of sufficient quality to achieve this goal potentially leaving many housing associations in breach of the law. After image quality, data security and compliance with data protection legislation were housing associations most pressing concerns. The survey also revealed that 97% of housing associations already use some form of CCTV or are actively considering doing so. Although nearly 60% of respondents were aware that their CCTV systems could be hacked, many confessed to not knowing how they could make their system more secure. Cloudview co-founder and CEO James Wickes said: For a CCTV system to serve its purpose, the recordings should be of sufficient quality to identify individuals performing criminal activity and be easily accessible by the police, with the right credentials to be used as evidence, such as accurate timestamping. It appears that many systems used to protect property, staff or tenants may not be fit for purpose and are breaching data protection legislation, putting companies at risk of fines, bad publicity and even criminal sanctions. The survey, which was conducted by a team of independent researchers, polled 100 IT managers, housing associations and facilities managers in June 2016.

A third of housing associations admit their CCTV generates poor quality images

One in three housing associations admit that their CCTV footage might be unfit for the purpose for which they installed network cameras: identifying intruders, vandals and other suspected criminals. Asked what their biggest concerns about their CCTV system, a third cited poor image quality. Those are the findings from a survey from Cloudview, which enable users to record and store high definition evidence quality images and video footage in the cloud.

CCTV has come a long way in terms of image quality since the days of grainy, black and white images, with 4K and even 7K models now available. Some may be surprised to learn, then that so many housing associations admitted to poor quality images. These admissions mean that they could find themselves in breach of the Data Protection Act (DPA), which states that data recorded with the purpose of identifying individuals performing criminal activities must be of sufficient quality to do so. Chosen as the subject of the survey because they rely heavily on CCTV systems to protect residents and assets, housing associations must manage multiple locations while generating efficiencies and reducing costs. Cloudview believes they could gain considerable improvements from increasing digitisation and federating data. Eighty-three per cent of survey respondents rated the quality of CCTV images as very important. Data security and compliance with the DPA are the next most important concerns showing that data protection legislation is a big issue for housing associations using CCTV. The areas of least concern included time-stamping of images, firmware updates and adding additional CCTV cameras. However, there is no point in having a high-quality image if the time it was recorded is inaccurate; as well as being unusable for many purposes such as evidence in criminal investigations, this is another potential breach of the DPA.

Similarly and also a DPA requirement, a lack of concern for firmware updates shows that users do not understand the security risks of not implementing updates and patches, leaving systems open to potential hacking as new security threats are being developed all the time. Cloudview co-founder and CEO James Wickes said: For a CCTV system to serve its purpose, the recordings should be of sufficient quality to identify individuals performing criminal activity and be easily accessible by the police, with the right credentials to be used as evidence, such as accurate timestamping. It appears that many systems used to protect property, staff or tenants may not be fit for purpose and are breaching data protection legislation, putting companies at risk of fines, bad publicity and even criminal sanctions. If organisations are worried about their CCTV, they can address many of their concerns without the need to rip and replace by simply adding a Cloudview adapter and connecting their current CCTV systems to Cloudview via the IoT, added Wickes. This will give them secure, encrypted storage for high quality images, accurate time and date stamping and immediate access to their data if it s needed by the police helping to ensure that even older analogue systems comply with the DPA.
