Security Review 'sharing day'

Accredited museums must obtain expert and objective security advice for collections at least every five years and plan to implement any recommendations.  We are interested to find out if there are museums in west Kent who are due a review of their security arrangements and would benefit from a 'sharing day' with a consultant security advisor to help meet the Accreditation requirement. Please contact joanna.low@brighton-hove.gov.uk to register your interest.

Free security and safety risk assessments

Security and safety risk assessments are being offered free of charge by Securitas Security Services for the arts and leisure sector.

The security scans could be of use to museums looking to increase efficiency or reduce security costs.  Advice on security awareness and small changes that can be made to protect collections, often at no charge, are also included.  Securitas is working in partnership with Collections Trust.
