Safety and Security
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.
A limited amount of funding is contributed to Humberside Police to provide additional PCSO patrols.
