Community Safety Accreditation Schemes are a means by which the Chief Constable of a police force in the United Kingdom may grant a limited range of police powers to employees of non-police organisations who contribute towards community safety. Community Safety Accreditation Schemes were created under section 40 of the Police Reform Act 2002. Individuals who have been granted these powers are known under the Act as Accredited Persons.
We have trained security companies, local authorities and the police for CSAS schemes that have provided accredited persons for: directing traffic at events, warden patrols and security patrols in shopping centres.
