Security Enhancement Project

CST’s Security Enhancement Project funds security facilities, such as CCTV systems, fencing, anti-shatter window film, locks and alarms, at hundreds of Jewish buildings across the country.

The project has committed and spent over £6 million to strengthen our community’s buildings against attack. This money is raised entirely through voluntary donations and we thank all our donors who have contributed to this project.

The project’s goal is for all Jewish communal premises to meet the recommendations of Government counterterrorism guidance:

  • Deter a would-be intruder, by providing physical and electronic security measures, coupled with good management practices.
  • Detect an intrusion, by providing alarm and visual-detection systems with verification.
  • Delay an intrusion for a sufficient period of time to allow a response force to attend, by putting in place the appropriate physical security measures.

“I’ve now worked with CST on and off for about 11 or 12 years directly, and in that time I’ve seen it develop into a really professional organisation – well-funded, well-organised, delivers on its promises, very challenging, there’s no messing about... But it has my support and it has the Police service of the United Kingdom’s support – great partner, it delivers what it says on the tin and it does its best to keep safe and share intelligence and allow us to move forward together.”
