NaCTSO urges bars, pubs and nightclubs to 'raise the bar' on security

The National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) has researched and produced Counter Terrorism Protective Security Advice for Bars, Pubs and Nightclubs in partnership with the Institute of Licensing, Bar Entertainment and Dance Association (BEDA), British Beer and Pub Association, British Hospitality Association, National Pubwatch and others.

The one-page PDF "provides counter terrorism security advice to those who own, operate, manage or work in bars, pubs and nightclubs" ahead of a busy summer within the Licensing and entertainment industry.

The advice covers four subjects:

  • Basic Good Housekeeping
  • Evacuation
  • CCTV
  • Reporting suspicious activity
