Portico are Members of the City Security Council

31 August 2021

Proud members of the City Security Council (CSC).

The CSC is now recognised as a leading and authoritative voice of the security industry and one that represents the interests of thousands of security officers.

The City Security Council (CSC) was established by leading Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) security providers. Originally a collaborative partnership between City based security companies and the City of London Police formed to assist them and the City of London Corporation whenever there is a major incident, crises or significant event that takes place within the footprint of the Square Mile in the City. Its strategic aim is to explore ways to improve collective responses to threats from terrorism, crisis or emergencies, which affect the City of London.

Today, the CSC has extended its membership beyond the City of London in the belief that by spreading its collaborative approach beyond the city boundaries will have a major benefit to the security industry, help assist police forces and emergency services nationwide and improve the safety of our communities.

Our membership reinforces our investment in providing dedicated training for our Portico Safe operatives and our commitment to share training resources across the members to ensure the same high standards and establish a uniform baseline knowledge.
