Post eviction security
Clearing a site of protesters is normally the top priority for our clients, but that is not where the story ends.
Risk of re-occupation
If a site is not properly protected after an eviction, there is a very high risk of re-occupation, particularly in environmental protests where emotions are running high.
Post eviction security planning and implementation
To prevent this, we will advise our clients on what actions should be undertaken to prevent re-occupation, depending on the level of risk. We will prepare plans in advance, so that these can be agreed and ready to be put in place as soon as the eviction is complete.
We can provide manpower – for example, security guards with dogs – to guard the perimeter whilst more permanent security measures are being put in place.
Leaving the writ open
We will also leave the writ open for some time after eviction if there is a risk of re-occupation, which means that we retain the power of the writ to remove trespassers, this avoiding the need to return to court.
