Event description

Description

About the day

This session will provide delegates with knowledge and practical solutions regarding crime prevention in the context of a museum or gallery. John Minary is a former senior detective having served with West Yorkshire Police. He is a trained crime prevention officer and formerly managed the crime reduction function for his home police force. He also has extensive experience of managing security within the museum. The session will provide specific knowledge assets regarding the 10 principles of Crime Prevention, the layered approach to security (Onion Peeling Principle) and theoretical and practical use of Environmental Visual Audits (EVA’s) within the museum.

When museums think about security, they often focus just on physical defences, alarms and guards. However, security is also about how to empower staff and volunteers to be proactive in recognising and reporting incidents which can provide an early warning and the means of preventing security incidents. The afternoon session will be dedicated to the practicalities of the Security Audit. Osprey Heritage Management will tailor a facilitated Q&A around common issues faced by museums. The topics covered will be chosen by delegates in advance.
