Post eviction security
Security pre- and post eviction
Environmental demonstrators are likely to set up encampments, dig tunnels, set up tree-top and roof occupations. There can be very extensive lock-ons, which are challenging to tackle, particularly from a health and safety perspective. Once they get wind of an eviction, they may also bring in reinforcements to escalate the protest.
Our site security risk assessment comprehensively recommends what should be put in place before the eviction to prevent encampments and lock-ons. Our detailed plans may include measures such as: perimeter security, shepherding teams and roving patrols.
We also advise clients on actions to prevent re-occupation. We prepare plans in advance, so these are ready to be put in place as soon as the eviction is complete. We can also provide manpower – for example, security guards with dogs – to guard the perimeter whilst more permanent security measures are being put in place.
