SGL Team Attends Counter Terrorism Workshop

Representatives from SGL, the licensed trade division of SecuriGroup, attended a workshop this week held by The National Licensed Trade Partnership which covered Counter Terrorism and Crime Scene Preservation.

Hosted by The National Licensed Trade Partnership (NLTP), the event was delivered the engagement between Police, Trade Partners and prevention schemes such as Best Bar None.

The National Licensed Trade Partnership (NLTP) was founded to improve communication between police and the licensed trade and promote best practice. The partnership consists of representatives from the licensed trade industry and relevant professionals including licensing lawyers, LSOs, representatives from trade groups, and Police Scotland.

The workshop represents another positive step in collaborative work between the police and front line operators.

SGL is proud to be a part of any constructive initiatives and continues to work with police services throughout the country to deliver safer environments in our communities.

"This Partnership is key to communicating positive messages to the licensed trade and wider public in relation to enjoying our night time economy in Scotland."

The event featured a key note speech from Assistant Chief Constable Bernard Higgins from Police Scotland.

"After the recent terrorist atrocities in Paris, Manchester and London, it is now vital that all who are involved in the licence trade recognise the benefits of Counter Terrorism training, which sadly is now as important as it is necessary.

"The safety of the general public and staff must always come first and never more so in these dangerous times.

"The aim of the NLTP is to develop and promote positive working relationships between Police Scotland, the SIA and the license trade as well as support a shared aim of best practice, responsible operation and mutual respect for each other."

Donald MacLeod, Chairman of the NLTP
