This Blog is the personal collection of posts written by me, Chris Lawton, Founding Member & Executive Chairman of The Security Institute of New Zealand (SINZ). I will regularly upload security related commentary, providing thoughts, concerns, bouquets and brickbats, but importantly it is here to encourage meaningful thought (maybe even discussion) about aspects of the security industry, community safety, security practices, even ideas on how  communities can be safer due to the efforts of corporate & private security and community safety groups,  assisted by the Police. A blog is about communication. Sometime it will be controversial, but we should never shy away from this if it could lead to a safer future. It’s also a way of getting up-to-date information or commentary on what is something everyone simply needs to know.
