What is a Secured by Design mailbox? It is one which is compliant with Secured by Design's Homes Guide (the latest March 2019), which sets out a number of stringent requirements in order that the letterbox meets the overall Police Initiative of designing out crime within the built environment. The SbD requirements are thorough relating to post boxes, and can be viewed here.
In brief terms, the Secured by Design Homes Brochure 2019 suggests that the mailboxes meet the following criteria to comply with their requirements:
Be of robust construction
A maximum aperture height of 40mm
Have anti-fishing properties
Have fire resistance where deemed necessary
Installed in accordance with manufacturers specification
Located in view, within a secure area at the primary building entrance point / exit point
