Press/Media: Other


Burglars have passed on the tricks of their trade to a Huddersfield researcher.

And now the study involving the jailed burglars has led to teams of talented Huddersfield product design students creating original new tools for deterring and thwarting housebreakers.



The students presented their designs to a panel of experts that included Prof Armitage and Chris Joyce, Crime Prevention Officer for West Yorkshire Police, Michael Brooke of Secured by Design, Steffan George who is Director of Business Development for the Master Locksmiths Association, the Training Programme Director Crime Prevention and Designing Out Crime for the College of Policing Janet Caton and Gemma Attiwell, who is Head of Contracts for lock manufacturers Yale.
