fertilisers, which must be secured in order to prevent them from being stolen. National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) has specific advice on this. Most venues and centres will have existing

plans that can be adapted to consider other types of incidents. For example, plans to evacuate a building due to fire are a good starting point and developing lockdown procedures should an incident outside the venue mean that people might be safer inside the building. The design of buildings and the materials

can support security activity. There is advice for architects on the CPNI website (Centre for Protection of National Infrastructure) and Secured by Design, a Police Security Initiative, has specific advice on how to incorporate security into a development. But every venue is unique and whilst there is

general advice available it should be viewed as a starting point. For specific and tailored security advice, operators should contact your local police and Counter Terrorism Security Advisor (CTSA). The challenge that all crowded places have

is the need to balance the threat against the protective measures required and then consider the impact these will have on the experience for people using the venues. Carrying out risk assessments to determine the most suitable approach, put plans in place and testing those plans is good practice and will help identify specific challenges. The intelligence picture is changing, and

operators should continue to monitor, in order to scale up or down their security approach as necessary. Venues should consider having a


tested escalation plan in place for when the threat level changes. Centre managers starting to consider

security should contact their local police for specialist protective security advice who will have access to the CTSA network. The Chartered Institute for the Management

of Sport & Physical Activity (CIMSPA) is linked into the Crowded Places Information Exchange, a network of venues, sports grounds and businesses sharing information and security. NaCTSO says the threat we face from

terrorismis significant and the attacks we have seen in the UK and across Europe attacks can happen at any time and any place without warning.

NaCTSO Crowded Places Guidance 2017 is a

useful resource that can help venue owners and those responsible for keeping people safe, understand the threat and ways to help mitigate it, to keep people safer. The SGSA has produced guidance notes for

sports grounds that can be used by the sports and leisure industry and can be found on the SGSA website. national-counter-terrorism-security-office
