Violence Reduction Workshops focused on night-time economy to be run by SIA

The Security Industry Authority is running a series of events across the UK designed to promote violence reduction measures within the night-time economy. The first of these events is scheduled for Tuesday 25 April in Ipswich.

In essence, the private security industry’s Regulator wants to bring people together to discuss local initiatives, share experiences and good practice in order to prevent harm being visited upon security operatives and members of the public. The aim of these events is to:

*share good practice of successful multi-agency violence reduction initiatives/approaches

*develop a shared understanding that violence reduction includes reducing violence against licensed operatives and improving the reporting of incidents

*raise standards of safe restraint by introducing new guidance material for security operatives

*share Best Practice for measuring the success of violence reduction initiatives

At each event, delegates will hear from representatives of the police service, local authorities and town centre initiatives. The briefings are free to attend and will take place at the following locations:

*Ipswich: Tuesday 25 April 2017

*Brighton: Thursday 11 May 2017

*Manchester: Wednesday 17 May 2017

Spaces are limited. Interested parties should e-mail stakeholder@sia.gsi.gov.uk as soon as possible in order to book their place
