CPTED-UK Director prepares to apply for the CSyP status

Boguslawa Motylska, aka Baxi, CPTED-UK prepares to apply for the Chartered Security Professional (CSyP) status.

The Register of Chartered Security Professionals (RCSP) was established under a Royal Charter granted to the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals in the UK and launched in 2011. Registrants use CSyP as a post nominal. Being admitted to the Register and becoming a CSyP is a means of being recognised and continuing to represent the highest standards and ongoing proficiency. It is the gold standard of competence in security practice.

Taking part in the CSyP application workshop is a good start for anybody who considers applying. They are delivered by an experienced CSyP who explains the application process step-by-step and the competences that the Register is looking for. There is also an opportunity to get a one-to-one practical guidance for getting through the process.

Baxi took part in the CSyP application workshop delivered by Richard Stones OBE on the 21st March 2023. Richard has joined the RCSP in 2011 and became the first serving Police Officer worldwide to be appointed. Since then, Richard has mentored many applicants. He is also a member of the Register’s Assessment Panel.

The Code of Conduct requires all CSyPs to operate the highest ethical values. The fundamental principles that guide a CSyP are professional competence, honesty and integrity, respect for life, law and the public good, and responsible leadership.

Baxi said: “In my professional career to date I have always been sincerely committed to the values represented by the Register of Chartered Security Professionals. All my decisions have been driven by my values, as much as my interest in history, politics, international relations, journalism, human rights and the criminal justice system. Pursuing these interests have got me where I am today- a founder of an international security consultancy for the built environment with a strong focus on supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals. I intend to continue developing my professional competence in security and to work tirelessly towards achieving the CSyP status.

As of 2023, the RCSP are introducing a new structure for application submissions. It currently accepts applications until Monday 27th March. After that, applications will be accepted during these dates:

Monday 22nd May – Monday 5th June 2023
Monday 31st July – Monday 14th August 2023
Monday 9th October – Monday 23rd October 2023
