Today we live in a world where security requirements rapidly change and terrorists and criminals are ever more sophisticated in their tactics to commit crimes. Consequently, the Police and Law Enforcement Agencies, with the aid of ground-breaking technologies, need to be one step ahead. The UK Security Industry is a world leader in the innovation of advanced engineering, manufacturing and services. ADS is committed to raising the profile of its security Members and as part of this initiative, it has developed the Security Innovation Award.
Now in its sixth year, the ADS Security Innovation Award will be presented to the winning creator of a piece of equipment, technology or service which is deemed to be unique and innovative.
The judges were looking for innovation that has been conceived and marketed commercially in the past two years. Equipment, training or technology which has significantly improved crime prevention or has significantly improved and made efficient Police/Law Enforcement Agencies operability.
Highly Commended Certificate awarded to PS5
This certificate has been awarded to PS5 by ADS in recognition of the development of new and highly specialised bespoke training protocols and training aids for use in the UK and overseas Police/Law Enforcement and Security sectors.
PS5 is not a multinational conglomerate with millions of pounds behind it; nor is it sponsored by government. PS5 is a tiny British company totally self funded that has dedicated almost the whole of its existence to helping people stay safe. PS5 comprises of CEO Steve Collins and a small but highly professional and dedicated team of individuals that sets a world-class standard for the protection of society from weapons and violence. PS5 have become a familiar presence worldwide, delivering training and lecturing at Universities, Police and Security Conferences plus government bodies, law enforcement agencies and the corporate sector.
The PS5 Mission Statement is simple, clear and to the point:
“A small group of single minded and dedicated people with one clear mission...To make a serious contribution to protecting citizens worldwide.”
Comment from Bob Rose
ADS (Director Public Security)
‘I am delighted that the work of PS5 has been recognised by ADSwith this award, as PS5 unquestionably contributes to the debate on the use of force and weapons along with our understanding of the problems and some of the solutions. Just as force should be applied as a continuum in a considered and measured way, so should the training and equipment.
The use of force and regrettably the use of weapons are not only always going to be necessary but also are incredibly difficult to manage. Quite apart from the personal issues, it is dangerous, socially, legally and financially. Doing something carries a risk, but often doing nothing can carry a greater risk. It is easy to talk in a rarified atmosphere in the full light of day of the considerations. Hindsight polishes deliberations to become shining examples of best practice, but reality is a million miles away with the need to make difficult decisions instinctively in a few second can mean the difference between a life saved and a life lost.
I firmly believe that training is as important as equipment, as without the training, the equipment can become a problem rather than a solution. Well balanced training is essential as it contextualises the threat and takes it from the sterile atmosphere of a court to a dark field in the middle of the night during a thunder storm.
Without doubt the training programmes on the use of force and weapons recognition PS5 has developed and delivers helps to make this world a safer place.’
