Corporate security, technology, manpower and business leaders from across London attended the Summer Security Conference hosted by The Shield Group in June at the museum ship HMS Belfast. Chaired by Ken Stewart, The Shield Group’s Corporate Risk Director and a Former Detective Chief Superintendent at the City of London Police, over 100 senior customers and guests joined The Shield Group’s team of experts for an afternoon of networking, high-tea and presentations from dynamic speakers from the public and private sectors. Tony Porter, Surveillance Camera Commissioner for England and Wales at The Home Office, discussed the importance of surveillance cameras and the challenges in using such technologies. Porter began his career at Greater Manchester Police and was subsequently appointed Head of CID for South Manchester. In his role as Commissioner, he is currently responsible for encouraging compliance with the surveillance camera code of practice, reviewing the effectiveness of the code and providing advice on the appropriate and transparent use of surveillance camera systems, all of which he discussed at the Summit. Detective Chief Superintendent Jeff Davies, Head of Crime and Counter Terrorism at the City of London Police spoke about the importance of CCTV surveillance in tackling crime and terrorist threats. Speaking about the event, The Shield Group’s Ken Stewart says,” The Conference was yet another fantastic opportunity to emphasise the most pressing security issues currently facing the UK and abroad.”
