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.

Friday Night Briefings

Brixton BID works in partnership with Safer Lambeth BCRP and the Metropolitan Police to deliver Friday Night Briefings for our Evening and Night-Time Economy businesses. In these briefings, the BCRP highlights repeat offenders and provide intelligence to security staff across the sector.

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 across Brixton.

Between Tuesday and Saturday two officers patrol 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. We also have a dedicated Brixton BID street cleaner who works in Brixton five days a week, providing BID members with graffiti removal, litter picking and helping to tackle waste in our public realm.

If you have something you wish to report please contact streetteam@brixtonbid.co.uk.

Campaigns

Supporting campaigns relevant to Evening and Night-Time Economy, and beyond to ensure that Brixton remains an enjoyable place for businesses, residents, and visitors. Brixton BID is committed to protecting Brixton’s heritage as a safe place to go out filled with live music and culture. We aim to promote all venues with campaigns such as ‘Agent of Change’ [link], #RaiseTheBar [link], ‘Ask for Angela,’ and Welfare and Vulnerability Engagement.
