In a recent interview, Britain`s most senior police officer directly challenged the Government over drastic budget cuts.
Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, the commissioner of the Metropolitan police, said his force would have to shrink, damaging its ability to respond to a terrorist attack or a repeat of the 2011 riots across London.
Hogan-Howe warned that planned funding cuts are so large they would endanger the safety of the public.
There’s more to a concierge service than signing in visitors and accepting packages. A top class concierge service for an office or block of flats will offer far more.
1. A great first impression. As the old saying goes: “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” This applies as much to your home and your business as it does to the people you meet. With an office or block of flats, that first impression comes when your visitor steps through the front door and is greeted at the reception desk.
Is the person behind the desk smartly dressed? Are they attentive and welcoming? A stressful or unpleasant experience for visitors can damage your business. In contrast, efficiency and a warm smile get a relationship off on the right foot.
You may have heard about the 12-year-old schoolgirl who recently fought off a male attacker by kneeing him in the groin. The assault came at around 6pm one evening earlier this month as the girl was making her way home from a self defence class in Hampstead.
You never get a second chance to make a first impression!

It is impossible to discuss Security in relation to vacant buildings London and Central London without addressing squatting. What exactly does squatting consist of?
Squatting is when someone deliberately enters empty or abandoned property without permission and lives there.
Vacant buildings in Central London can all be vulnerable to squatters. Even a disused police station in East London was occupied by squatters in 2005, and in this instance the case was adjourned for four months, allowing the squatters to stay put during that time. When squatters occupy an empty building it is actually incredibly difficult for the legal owner to arrange for them to be evicted.
