Security

Your safety is our priority. That means tackling anti-social behaviour, improving security information and working closely with neighbouring BIDs, the Metropolitan Police and Westminster City Council to share intelligence and take action on problems on behalf of our members and the community.

To report a crime that has already taken place please call 101.

The BID offers free bespoke training for our members, including personal safety, security, counter terrorism, resilience and contingency, fire marshal, managing difficult customers and health and safety. We respond directly to suggestions from businesses to add new topics, so do get in touch if you have ideas for new courses. Keep an eye on our events page for the latest list of training courses.

We’re part of Safer London and the West End Security Group, so you don’t have to be. We pass on intelligence on your behalf and make sure you are briefed in advance of major events, protests and marches, particularly those that set off from Marble Arch or Park Lane.

Our Business Crime Group brings together retailers and members from our hospitality sector. These businesses are particularly affected by shoplifting, theft and organised begging, as their customers and guests are targeted entering or leaving premises.

If you’d like to join any of our courses or groups, simply pick up the phone or email us.
