Secured by Design is the only form of Police approval for products in the UK. The principles of Secured by Design have been proven to reduce the risk of crime and the fear of crime. In West Yorkshire research demonstrated Secured by Design award newly built developments are up to 75% less likely to experience crime. In Glasgow, research demonstrated Secured by Design refurbished developments are up to 63% less likely to experience crime. Householders who aren't offered security recommendations after a burglary are 69% more likely to suffer a repeat incident than those who are offered advice.

The Association of British Insurers predicted that in one year alone, some 700,000 burglaries could be thwarted if appropriate security devices were installed, representing an annual saving of more than £1.97 billion.

Secured by Design's membership scheme currently includes over 400 member companies whose products have met the required standards. The London 2012 Olympic Park and the 2014 Commonwealth Games Village have both been awarded full Secured by Design status. Secured by Design is owned by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO).
