Join our On-Street Security Briefings

The BID team are holding a series of on street briefings and bike marking events for BID members.

The on-street briefings will be for anyone with an interest in security. This could range from shoplifting to personal safety, to ASB, to environmental factors, to counter terrorism.

Emily and Lauren will be on the street for an hour with our security teams and the police (should police workload permit). The briefings will give the BID an opportunity to talk about what is happening in the BID area and to also collect your feedback. The BID may then be able to structure their safe and secure programme around the feedback provided and feed into the safe and secure steering group.
