SBD is a police-owned organisation that works on behalf of the Police service throughout the UK to deliver a wide range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives.
SBD plays a significant crime prevention role in the planning process to design out crime in a wide range of building sectors. It has achieved some significant success including one million homes built to SBD standards with reductions in crime of up to 87%.
Products must be subjected to vigorous testing and auditing by an accredited third-party organisation before being allowed to carry the SBD logo – this is the only way for companies to obtain Police accreditation for security related products in the UK.
