  • improving the security of government buildings and their surroundings, including prisons
  • providing advice to government and police on protecting against terrorist attacks
  • developing standards for testing the equipment used in building and site security
  • evaluating and developing explosives and weapons-detection equipment
  • providing security training to customers in the police, military, government and industry
