In his latest blog for, Stuart Lodge, Chief Executive of Lodge Service, discusses alarm response. Stuart writes: “At the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit between April 2 and 5, it is reported that thieves used heavy cutting equipment to get into the vault and broke into some 70 safe deposit boxes, stealing an estimated £60 million to £200 million worth of gems and cash.

“As a major security incident, what lessons can we learn from it?

"No matter how good the security plan, or the sophistication of the technology, the system ultimately depends on the people that operate it. Key to this is:-

  • professionally managed selection of security staff
  • regular training and skills upgrades
  • Inspection and testing of security processes

“The threat of high-value theft will not go away. As an industry, we have to be ready to deal with it.”
