DAY 1 – an Introduction to Community Security(including Online security), Personal safety and security for everyone and an open Q&A session
This is a valuable stand-alone introduction to security, useful for anyone, and is a beneficial starting point for Day 2’s seminar.

DAY 2 – Event security, Conflict management, Hostile reconnaissance and a Table-top scenario
These sessions are applicable to front-facing staff & volunteers and for those involved in the planning/organising of security and/or events.

Itinerary for DAY 1 On 16th we have 2 speakers to start things off:

    • 1. Opening by Detective Superintendent Craig McWhinnie
      Head of Counter Terrorism Policing South West
    • 2. Keynote speaker – Figen Murray OBE

      Figen’s son, Martyn Hett, was one of the 22 people killed in the devastating Manchester Arena terrorist attack. Figen is the force behind Martyn’s Law – the Protect Duty – which will impact counter-terrorism awareness and planning for Publicly Accessible Locations.

This is an incredible opportunity for those who work in events, or the community or anyone who works with people can benefit from this seminar.
