The Security Institute's Royal Patron - HRH The Princess Royal

The Princess Royal is pleased to accept Royal Patronage of The Security Institute for an initial period of three years.  Her Royal Highness’s interest in matters relating to public safety, security and that of national security are well documented.  This is evidenced through The Princess Royal’s military affiliations as well as a number of charities and Patronages.

Her Royal Highness’s Royal Patronage recognises the unique and valued work that the Security Institute carries out across all levels within the profession, and its various initiatives, including the youth engagement programme NextGen, which partners with Foundations; Charities and Volunteer Police Cadets. The Princess Royal looks forward to supporting the Security Institute in its future work.

Security Institute President Baroness Henig CBE DL said:

“This is a huge accolade for the Institute and recognition of the work we undertake. I am delighted to welcome The Princess Royal as our Royal Patron. The Institute is the UK’s largest professional membership body for security professionals, with over 4,000 members to date, and expanding global reach.  Since 1999 the Security Institute has been working to promote the highest possible standards of integrity and professional competence in the business of security.”

Security Institute Chair Peter Lavery FSyI said:

“The Security Institute is honoured that The Princess Royal has become our Royal Patron. I have seen Her Royal Highness’s support for a number of security related organisations and someone who readily understands the important role of Protective Security in keeping the public safe. The Security Institute looks forward to working with The Princess Royal in the years to come.”
