HullBID support officers patrol the city centre from Monday to Friday, responding to a variety of requests for support from businesses, whilst liaising closely with the police and Civic 1, the local authority's CCTV control hub.
They collaborate with partners to reduce begging on the street and offer assistance with antisocial behaviour issues. The HullBID radio system has proven invaluable in tackling retail theft and helping office workers feel more secure.
Crime in the city centre has reduced significantly since HullBID introduced the system, and many businesses say that the radios provide extra protection to both customers and staff. Contact us for information about getting a radio handset.
The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner has committed funding for a three-year period for HullBID to operate and administrate the well-regarded DISC low-level crime reporting system which has proved successful in reducing crime in other towns and cities.
Amongst other benefits, DISC enables businesses who have joined the scheme to directly share immediate alerts or submit a report for Humberside Police and other members to view, and to upload and access stills and videos of perpetrators. There are no costs involved in joining the scheme, however, there are protocols in place to ensure GDPR compliance. For further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01482 611802 to sign up.
