City of London

Crime prevention design

The Architectural Liaison Officer (ALO) provides crime prevention design advice for City developments and works closely with the CTSA team.

Crime Prevention Design Advice and Secured by Design

Championing the Secured By Design initiative, the ALO advises architects, developers and planners from the drawing board to the end stages of developments, and works closely with the City of London Corporation’s planning department.

Please note that the ALO only advises on developments in the City of London.  For advice on developments elsewhere in Greater London, please see Metropolitan Police Crime Prevention Design Advisers listed by Borough on the Secured by Design website.​​​​
