New StreetSafe Initiative: StreetSafe is a pilot service for anyone to anonymously tell us about public places where you have felt or feel unsafe, because of environmental issues, eg street lighting, abandoned buildings or vandalism and/or because of some behaviours, eg being followed or verbally abused. Please note: 'StreetSafe' is not for reporting crime or incident https://www.police.uk/pu/notices/streetsafe/street-safe/
The ULTIMATE Guide to Stab Proof Vests from Working the Doors! ‘Stab’ – even the word is short, sharp and violent.

Changes to membership management: GSIP Membership is free, we have decided not to charge for membership. Instead, we will be providing a series of both free and paid CPD courses via our associated training site ad looking to that income to meet our running costs going forward. SIA license holders will automatically be enrolled to the end date of their current licensing period with free upgrades. Other interested parties will join on a 3-year rolling plan. Please do however keep your contact details up to date – if we receive an email bounce back and are unable to contact you, we will remove your details from the list. Of course, you can re-join but keeping your contact details up to date saves us both a bit of hassle!
Add us to your address book, Whitelist or mark our emails ‘Not Spam’ so that firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com don’t end up in your spam folder! If not sure how to do that you can easily get instructions via a google search, for example: How to whitelist in Gmail – replace Gmail with your email provider’s name. There are also loads of YouTube videos to help. I am harping on about this a bit because it is ultra-important! There’s no point signing up and then not hearing anything from us because your email service provider has decided that our emails get blacked!
