What are your concerns for security in South Bank? Is it unlicensed street trading, or anti-social behaviour? What will happen as budgets are further reduced? South Bank BID businesses can have a big impact on how crime and security are tackled by telling us what they see and experience and putting measures in place that protect their property and their employees. The aim of South Bank Patrol Service is to listen and respond.
South Bank Patrol works to deter crime, reduce and eliminate unlicensed street trading, the threat of terrorism, petty crime and anti-social behaviour, and engage with private security teams, police and other agencies throughout the area. The Patrol represents the interests of local businesses by working in partnership on crime reduction schemes and projects, using contacts at all levels of government including the Metropolitan Police and Transport for London, and by engaging with local businesses to address the security issues important to their organisation and employees. New schemes provide, for instance, additional police resources to South Bank to tackle security issues, including unlicensed street trading, aggressive begging, unlawful gambling, street drinking and theft.
South Bank BID businesses can find out more about the security services available to them by contacting the Public Realm Team at firstname.lastname@example.org
