Secure Access Control during public spending cuts on policing
A Cardiff University analyst has said cutting community safety programmes and police numbers during the recession could cause long-term economic and social damage in communities across Wales. Professor Martin Innes, one of the UK’s leading policing experts, said: "It is clear there will be considerable central government pressure to cut public spending on community safety and policing services. Whilst some of this is inevitable, perhaps even desirable, care must be taken not to cut too deeply.” He added that there has been: “A great deal of good, positive and productive work by community groups, community safety partnerships and police forces across Wales.”
Any business concerned about the impact of the recession on rising crime can take steps with a complete building security network from Access Control Wales. Clocking stations which rely on contactless smart cards will ensure control of access and peace of mind. Starting with a T8440 Clocking Station, 50 smart cards and software and one to four-door access control, the modular system can be easily upgraded to include biometric scanners to provide irrefutable proof of identity, plus a surveillance network.
