The security week: Ticket touts, batteries, antique clashes and Elvis Costello

Another action-packed week at I4S, with the venerable editor of SMT magazine, Brian Sims, pulling no punches in his assessment of the ticket touting blight.

There was more advice for installers, also, with the BSIA advising them to get ready for next year’s EU Battery Directive. And the BSIA went and launched a handbook on access control installations.

In news about major, devastating clashes, the hot topic this week was the face off between the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow and the security industry’s Safer Doors conference. What was the outcome?

We can only guess at what Elvis Costello would make of all this. And we can also appreciate his 1977 single ‘Watching the Detectives’, because that’s this week’s Song About Security. It’s spectastic!

Excellent security jobs website www.jobsforsecurity.com goes from strength to strength, so you should head over there and check out all the security jobs and career information. We fully endorse it!

And if you’re one of those people who likes to attend conferences about CCTV, there is a great conference about CCTV you should attend! It’s called Next Generation CCTV, and it promises to be a truly fantastic conference about CCTV. Get involved!

Antiques Roadshow and armoured cars

It’s the clash of the titans: the BBC’s aging warhorse Antiques Roadshow versus the nimble, spry and youthful Safer Doors conference. Why are these two important national institutions at loggerheads? Brian Sims puts his own personal safety to one side and wades into the conflict to provide the answers.

And following yesterday’s news of forthcoming battery-based responsibilities for installers, Dedicated Micros chips in with some more uplifting information on an extension to its dome giveaway promotion.

There’s also the details of the buyout by Loomis of US cash handling firm EM Armoured Car Service.

Don’t forget to get involved with the I4S-supported Next Generation CCTV conference. And pop over to www.jobsforsecurity.com, where you can read a very useful guide to working in the UK security sector.
