Shopping centres present one of the greatest security challenges, as they’re a people masses migrating to retail and leisure amenities at the same time, quite often oblivious to the world and dangers around them with a single mission – shopping, working and socialising.

Security and risk mitigation needs to include higher degrees of preventative counter terrorism threats (either by ‘lone wolfs’ or individuals), crime (whether opportunistic or organised), gangs, general security breaches and manager accidents and general incidents.
