Our Street Team

Building on the legacy of our former Section-92 additional policing scheme, in August 2021 we introduced our new Street Team initiative as part of our efforts to increase safety and reduce crime in the area.

They engage on daily basis with you, our business members, assisting in crime prevention against property, shop-lifting and reporting anti-social behaviour. They also act as ambassadors for Brixton, meeting and assisting consumers, visitors, employees and residents. They work in shift patterns cover busier times.

Women’s Night Safety Charter

We are signatories of the Mayor’s Women’s Night Safety Charter (WNSC), created to make London a city where all women feel confident and welcome night and day. Gianluca Rizzo, our Managing Director is also a member of the WNSC Steering Group. The charter is part of the Mayor’s Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy and London’s commitment to the UN Women Safe Cities and Safe Public Spaces global initiative.

Street Pastors

Brixton BID is supporting Lambeth Street Pastors to deliver weekly patrols in the Brixton town centre. Lambeth Street Pastors visit and engage with local businesses, and work with vulnerable patrons in Brixton to ensure their safety by handing out water, slippers, and finding transport if suspected to be unsafe.

We are committed to protecting Brixton’s heritage as a safe place to go out filled with live music and culture.
