About this event…
Crowded Places / Publicly Accessible Locations (PALs)
Head of NaCSTO – Superintendent Adam Thomson
If you are responsible for safety or security at a Crowded Place, this is for you…..
The Policy towards protecting publicly accessible locations (PALs) is shifting. UK Government and NaCTSO are moving away from a model where specific sites are prioritised to one where the operating structure is set up to improve the protection of the public wherever they go. The proposed introduction of the Protect Duty and the design and implementation of the PALs future operating model (FOM) is likely to result in a significant uplift in responsibility for many organisations that operate, or operate within, a publicly accessible place.
The current Crowded Places model meets the needs of the larger organisations, the PALS model will meet the need of existing and emerging threats and also the needs of the many new, and often much smaller, organisations so they are better able to protect themselves, their customers and the public.
Please join the CT SIG to listen to Superintendent Adam Thomson, the Head of NaCTSO and one of the main architects of the model, to hear of the work ongoing with the Homeland Security Group to deliver Publicly Accessible Locations. A future model to better protect the UK from terrorist attack.
