High-tech CCTV security system company Watchtower Security Solutions (WSS) has been awarded Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative. This comes at the same time as the company achieved Gold Membership status with Constructionline and Secure by Default, a certification that guarantees that a product reduces vulnerability to cybercrime.

WSS build cost-effective surveillance towers to protect property and sites from criminal activity, working across the UK and in multiple countries around the world. It is the WT-1 CCTV Tower that has achieved Police Preferred Specification which makes it the only one available that is both CE marked and SBD accredited. 

Dominic White, Managing Director at Watchtower Security Solutions, said: “My team and I are delighted to have the only mobile CCTV Tower of its kind accredited by Secured by Design. Achieving awards like these is reflected in our determination to be a leader within the security sector, providing clients greater assurance about safety, quality and environmental management standards.”

SBD Development Officer Lyn Poole commented: "I am pleased that WSS have joined Secured by Design. With the increase in developments around the UK construction sites can attract all sorts of problems such as thefts, criminal damage and anti-social behaviour. The WT-1 CCTV Tower can go a long way to deterring offenders and alerting the monitoring centre so police can be called.”

SBD is part of Police Crime Prevention Initiatives (PCPI), a police-owned organisation that works on behalf of the police service to deliver a wide range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives across the UK. SBD plays a significant crime prevention role in the planning process to design out crime in a wide range of building sectors.

Products must be subject to rigorous testing and additionally be fully certificated by an independent, third-party certification body accredited by the United Kingdom.
