At the end of August, we introduced our new Street Team initiative as part of our efforts to increase safety and reduce crime in the area. We welcome new Brixton BID team members Sharon Bruce, Tusken Clare and Matt Collymore-Verapen who are all SIA-registered officers.
To deliver the Street Team we have partnered with The Welcome People, founded in September 2011 by David Miller and Calvin LaCock who have extensive knowledge and experience of working with Business Improvement Districts.
Sharon, Tusken and Matt will be engaging on daily basis with you, our business members, assisting in crime prevention against property, shop-lifting and reporting anti-social behaviour. They will also act as ambassadors for Brixton, meeting and assisting consumers, visitors, employees and residents across Brixton. Between Tuesday and Saturday two officers will be patrolling the BID area to monitor and report local public realm issues, liaise with local partners such as LB Lambeth, Safer Lambeth BCRP, Met Police and others.
The Street Team will be visiting all BID members to introduce themselves and can be contact on email@example.com.
