PSSA membership confirms SAFECROWDS HVM & counter terrorism credentials

SAFECROWDS is proud to announce that the company is now certified as a Member of the Perimeter Security Suppliers Association (PSSA), confirming our professional approach to specifying and installing hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) equipment.

The PSSA is the well-respected trade association for manufacturers and installers of high-security perimeter protection products and equipment, including tested and certified HVM systems. Organisations must go through a robust application and vetting process to be assessed as either an Installer Member or a Manufacturer Member of the PSSA, and SAFECROWDS has passed the thorough acceptance process with flying colours.

Rory McGoldrick, Founder and Director of SAFECROWDS explains: “At SAFECROWDS, we have the expertise to provide Threat Vulnerability & Risk Assessments and Vehicle Dynamics Assessments to inform correct and proportionate specification of HVM systems, along with the experience to install certified solutions in as tested configurations to maximise their performance while supporting operational efficiency and normal crowd flows.

“Membership of the PSSA provides third party endorsement that this is the case, giving our clients – new and existing – complete confidence that we have the tried and tested capabilities they need to keep people, property and assets safe and secure with trusted HVM systems from a reliable and professional partner.’

SAFECROWDS added counter terrorism security and HVM services to the company’s extensive security services portfolio because large venues, events, and stadiums are becoming increasingly aware of the terror threat and the need to mitigate the risk of an attack. Developing partnerships with a number of industry-leading manufacturer and distributor partners from around the world, including SafetyFlex and ARX Security, the company has developed an enviable reputation for providing a complete counter terrorism and security service, which includes SIA Licensed security guards, covert security, stewards, K9 explosives and pyro detection dogs and handlers, facial recognition technology, and consultancy, as well as HVM specification and installation.

Rory continues: “Our experience in the security industry means we have the specialist understanding to consider terrorism and security risks holistically and offer a joined up services to clients. Part of the vulnerability of a venue, stadium or event is the level of security in place, and, by offering a coordinated service across the security and counter terrorism protection requirement, we can ensure all aspects have been considered and are complementary.”

Confirmation of SAFECROWDS’ PSSA membership follows the company’s presence at last year’s International Security Expo in London, where it was the HVM sponsor, with equipment installed at the entrance to the venue.

“We have already demonstrated our expertise amongst industry peers at ISE and for a wide range of football clubs, venues and events,” Rory adds, “so it’s great to have our PSSA Membership certificate to confirm those credentials.
