The association is keen to reach an audience beyond the police, among, for example, architects. For European standards body CEN (the Centre for European Normalisation) Terry Cocks is convenor of a working group (made up of police, academics and the like) on designing out crime in schools and petrol stations; and protection of buildings from ram raids. Another working party, French-led, is looking at security standards at transport interchanges. The aim; to provide pan-European standards, or reference documents.
