First accredited SBD alarm installer receives certificate

September 13, 2021


Tindall Security, the first alarm installation company accredited by the official police security initiative, Secured by Design, were presented with a certificate recognising the achievement at The Security Event.

The certificate was presented to David Pomfrett, Managing Director of Tindall Security, by Guy Ferguson, CEO of Police Crime Prevention Initiatives. Secured by Design is one of the wide range of crime prevention initiatives run by Police CPI to support the wider UK Police Service, Government and the general public.

Following increasing industry interest, Secured by Design (SBD) launched an alarm standard for alarm installation companies which incorporates existing criteria whilst building on police and industry knowledge. The new enhanced alarm standard will ensure a high quality alarm system, reduce false calls and give customers enhanced levels of reassurance that an alarm installation company meets the exacting standards of the Police Service.

Guy Ferguson, CEO of Police CPI, said: “I am absolutely delighted to present this certificate to Tindall Security as the first accredited SBD alarm installation company. It has never been more important for consumers to rely on professional companies to deliver high quality alarm systems and services as compliant alarm systems and reputable installation companies are essential to ensure that you will get the appropriate response to an alarm activation”.

David Pomfrett, Tindall Security, added: “We’re thrilled to be the first company afforded the Secured by Design accreditation for alarm installation in the country. We work to provide people with peace of mind, and being an official Police initiative, this will go a long way to reassure our customers.”

Ruari Robertson, Secured by Design, remarked: “I am thrilled that Tindall Security, a family run business, have become the first accredited alarm installer with Secured by Design and look forward to developing our working relationship over the coming months.”

SSAIB chief executive Alex Carmichael also commented: “We would like to congratulate SSAIB-registered firm Tindall Security for being the first company in the UK to achieve SBD alarm installation certification.

“One of the many benefits of third-party certification is that it allows companies to display their conformity to the relevant British and European Standards, while this new standard also permits them to further enhance their credentials – and their standing within the industry – by being named as a Police Preferred Specification alarm installer as well.”

Tindall Security offers tailored services to suit individual preferences and needs, from simple domestic burglar alarms to more sophisticated commercial protection and security solutions. Their in–house expert design team can design and install the latest high quality technology for the best protection system to homes and businesses.
