After the Manchester Arena attack and subsequent campaigning by the mother of one of the victims, a consultation was launched in February 2021 which ran until the July. 2755 individuals responded to the survey, and it was found that 7 in 10 respondents agreed or strongly agreed that those responsible for publicly accessible locations should take appropriate and proportionate measures to protect the public from attacks at these locations. Staff should also be prepared on how to respond in the event of a terrorist attack. Terrorist attacks could occur anywhere and in any form, so it’s important that the correct security measures are implemented to best protect people in publicly accessible locations, or even prevent an incident from occurring.

What are PALs?
Publicly Accessible Locations (PALs) are defined by the Government as ‘any place which the public or any section of the public has access’, this could be by payment, by right, or permission. This includes sports and entertainment venues, restaurants, bars, and cafes, and open spaces with no defined boundary, such as parks, squares, beaches, or public roads.
