Our focus this week is on safety & security - find out about the two
Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) we are funding and
how the new crime prevention radio scheme is going...
Luton BID is funding PCSOs
We are funding two Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) to patrol the town centre streets in the lead-up to Christmas.
The PCSOs will ensure safety and help boost security in prominent town centre locations over the busy festive period.
Crime radio scheme launch switch over
The new digital business crime radio scheme
is being managed by Luton Business Against Crime (LBAC) with Luton BID offering businesses a significant subsidy towards the hire cost of the digital radios.
The scheme has been up and running in Luton town centre for a week now and is
currently running alongside the old analogue system to ensure a smooth transition.
It is already proving more effective, allowing businesses to share intelligence and boost safety and security more efficiently. It will eventually replace the old analogue scheme.
For more details on how to apply for your subsidised radio click HERE.
We are recruiting a new Ambassador
