The ‘Secured by Design’ Initiative

‘Secured by Design’ is a UK Police flagship initiative the premise of which is to ‘design out’ crimes in both the products used in, and the design of, new homes, refurbished homes, commercial premises, car parks and other areas of concern. It promotes the designing-in of crime prevention measures by allocating a ‘Secured by Design’ license to those companies that pass standards and tests nominated by the police service. It permits those companies that meet the standards to assign the ‘Police Preferred Specification’ logo to approved products.


‘Secured by Design’ is supported and managed by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) and has the backing of the Home Office. It is a crime prevention measure that reduces the opportunity for crime, creates a safer environment and reduces the fear of crime.

The Association of Chief Police Officers for England, Wales and Northern Ireland (ACPO) and the Association of Chief Police Officers for Scotland (ACPOS) represent the police forces of the United Kingdom and both organisations endorse and support the ‘Secured by Design’ programme.

ACPO Crime Prevention Initiatives Limited was established in 1999 to manage ‘Secured by Design’ and similar crime prevention initiatives at a national level. It is entirely owned by ACPO with chief police officers on the Board of Directors. It is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee and registered in England.
