More licensing – and CCTV training

Guten tag! It’s Monday, so it must be time for a story about Security Industry Authority licensing consultations. Should there be one card to cover all licences? What do you think, buddy?

We’ve also got the latest piece on our CCTV End User Survey, where end users made their thoughts known on the training provided by installers and manufacturers. Have a good hard look at the thing!

Of course, it wouldn’t be Monday September 14 if we didn’t have a story about the increase in tractor and quad bike theft. Damn you, pesky recession!

There are also items on the impact of hate crime; and some new drug detection technology.

Did you know that IFSEC India 2009 is happening soon? You didn’t? That’s a shame. You do now. And you’re welcome!

The security week: CCTV performance, video analytics, and football violence

What a week of security news it’s been, eh? It was crazy!

How’s this? It’s a bit of an in-depth look at one of the questions in our CCTV End User Survey – this time dealing with performance expectations. Wow!

SMT Online editor Brian Sims this week looked at the security implications following the latest bit of football violence following the West Ham/Millwall match, in his SMT Online Editor’s View. And this week’s Song About Security focuses on that very topic as well.

We’ve also got a couple of articles on the furore surrounding the London Met Police report into the effectiveness of CCTV for crime solving – here’s take one; and here’s take two. Double fun!

Don’t forget to check out our latest Bench Test; get some words of advice from the Access Control Doctor; and find out about the debate surrounding using video analytics at the edge or centre of a CCTV system. Mind blowing!

Don’t forget to register for IFSEC India 2009, Internal Security India, and the one day Counter Terror India event. You’ll have the time of your life.

Young crims, Madstock, and Swansea

Today’s security news round-up kicks off with a story about a university study claiming that a non-jail programme for young offenders is ‘too soft’.

Then there’s AP Security, at it again – this time they’re looking after ska survivors at Madness-fest Madstock.

Security Installer editor Alan Hyder has once more metaphorically disrobed and donned his suit of opinion armour, using his shining sword of news analysis as he does battle with the invading hordes of security-related issues, in his SI Editor’s View. Today he looks at Onvif, car clamping, ID cards, and plenty more besides.

Have you always wished Swansea was safer? Here is a story about a scheme which is making that dream a reality.

If you’ve got an itch to investigate security in India, you should definitely go to IFSEC India 2009. It is bound to be simply lovely.

South African crime, and free registration

Well hello, delightful person. Here’s your rapid fire Monday Daily Digest security news missive. Enjoy!

We’ve got a special report today on the state of commercial crime in South Africa and the measures being taken to combat it.

There’s also the opportunity to register for free as a visitor to IFSEC India 2009 – the single greatest security show in all of India. Ever. True, that.

I was surprised to discover The Edge has taken on the deputy chief executive role at Skills For Security, but it turns out that it was the other Edge. Bono is quite strict about taking work outside of your main job.

Also today there’s more spam; an SIA briefing for CCTV operators; an ACS survey for end users; and facial recognition training for police.

In-house licensing, and investment win

Today the BSIA answers Brian Sims‘ query, posed yesterday in his SMT Online Editor’s View – where’s your response to the in-house licensing issue? Looks like they are after submissions to have the issue looked at by the SIA again. Responsive!

It seems Peter Mandelson isn’t always a harbinger of doom. He visited KeTech – now they’ve got some investment funding. Mmm, delicious funding.

Olympic news: the SIA has inspected security staff at the Olympic Park development. They were all licensed. That’s a relief.

In other news, Paul Goggins, the Minister of State for Northern Ireland, is set to speak at the Skills for Security National conference; Panasonic has released a network recorder for megapixel applications; and Bosch has launched ‘smart technology‘ for its CCTV cameras.

Why not enjoy a relaxing holiday break in India after attending IFSEC India 2009? It’s worth a shot.
