Dealing with violence in a Covid-19 environment: what are the implications for security? (Sponsored by Maybo)
Experience of Covid-19 has witnessed a shift in violence incidents. There has been a greater concern with violence in the home, with suggestions of higher levels of partner and child abuse and certainly more awareness of it. That many people are working from home blurs the distinction between home and work, but where does this leave the security sector if what was domestic abuse is now violence at work? What are its moral obligations? On the frontline we are hearing about the patience needed to enforce social distance rules in an ongoing way, and we are hearing about security officers facing abuse and attacks including spitting and being coughed over, so how should the security sector react to that? Public order protests are in vogue with widespread support sometimes in defiance of social distance rules. In this webinar we will examine:

• The ways in which violence is changing and being understood in a Covid-19 environment
• The specific problems facing the security sector and the clients and stakeholders it serves
• The new ways and approaches that need to be considered by the security sector as it moves to the ‘new normal’
