Government introduced to new model for prison perimeter security delivery

03rd March 2017

The leading prison fencer believes the UK Government could make significant savings by adopting its proposed model for delivering perimeter security.

Binns Fencing, the leading fencing contractor for the Ministry of Justice, is unveiling its proposed model and its Centre of Excellence for Prisons at the official UK Government global security event next week.

Security & Policing 2017 takes place from 7 to 9 March at Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre.

The unique three-day event, established over 30 years ago, is the premier platform for UK suppliers to showcase the latest equipment, training and support, police services, Government departments, organisations and agencies from the UK and overseas.

Binns (stand F54) will be exhibiting prison-standard 358 type fencing topped with its Flexible Security Topping (FST), PIDS from Harper Chalice and drone detection systems from Eclipse Digital Solutions.

Binns is proposing new perimeter security and PIDS procurement and delivery model, where it provides a single point of contact for the complete perimeter security package, providing greater opportunity for innovation, reducing complexity and the need to manage multiple contractors.

Binns believes this could offer significant cost savings on PIDS cable installation and contract and project management costs.

The Government is yet to announce its latest prison build and refurbishment programme.  But, as Security & Policing kicks off, the first prisoners will be moved into HMP Berwyn, the new super-prison at Wrexham, which will eventually house up to 2,100 inmates and cost £250m to build.

Binns MD Adam Binns said: “We have devised this model in consultation with the Government, main contractors and suppliers, to deliver the best value and a greater potential to innovate with a single point of contact throughout procurement, delivery and installation.

“The model will give them trusted advice on design, manufacturing and installation from exclusively British companies with British products from electronic systems of CCTV, detection, video management and access control to physical security fencing, gates and hostile vehicle mitigation.”

Security & Policing provides a platform for professionals from the UK and worldwide to engage with the very highest level of security expertise and the latest technology.  It provides the level of industry engagement needed to enable the UK Government to procure and deliver its national security priorities.

Security Minister Ben Wallace MP said: “The first duty of Government is to protect its citizens.  The secure environment provided at Security and Policing 2017 allows the UK industry and security professionals a unique opportunity to access the best in new technologies.

“In an ever-faster moving world, our security challenges can only be overcome by Government and law enforcement agencies embracing technical innovation.”
