In January 2022 the government reported their findings from the Protect Duty consultation.
2755 responses were received and the majority supported tougher security measures to ensure preparedness for and protection from terrorist attacks in any ‘publicly accessible location’.
Legislation is due to come into effect this summer and our Physical Security Director, Adam Usher, has prepared some guidance for all organisations, businesses and venues which will be affected by these new laws to ensure preparedness for and protection from terrorist attacks.
The document outlines the aims of the Protect Duty, what they mean for any publically accessible spaces, and the steps you can take to ensure you meet the new laws.
As part of our professional security services MAST will be offering help and support in the planning and execution of all measures associated with the Protect Duty to ensure the public is better protected.
