The third Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) Thought Leadership Summit, organised in association with the National Security Inspectorate, takes place on Wednesday 26 February at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in central London. Details of the full programme have now been released by the organisers.
The line-up of high-profile speakers is set to provide a platform to debate and challenge matters that affect the whole security community.
A representative from Madrid Police, namely Inspector Angel Martinez Sendino, will share the Madrid story of reducing false alarms. This presents a challenge to the established methodology here in the UK. Inspector Sendino’s talk will examine this success story, and why the losers are UK businesses and the British public.
“It’s claimed that the Madrid approach delivers savings and provides for improved performance, but it’s well recognised as being non-compliant with UK standards,” commented Professor Martin Gill CSyP FSyI, director of Perpetuity Research and founder of the OSPAs. “Following this talk from Inspector Sendino, key influencers from the police, the security inspectorates and Trade Associations will examine the pros and cons of the Spanish concept and debate as to whether anything can be done to reap the benefits on home shores.”
Other topics to be covered include ‘Why pay a Real Living Wage?’, the role of a Regulator in promoting Best Practice in employment, ‘Security Guarding’: the race to the bottom and innovation in the future and ‘Woman in Security’: their experiences and key areas for industry development.
