Safe & Secure
Reducing crime and the fear of crime in the town centre is our number one priority. Working in close association with the police, businesses, Bexley Council and various agencies, our aim will be to deter and tackle crime and anti social behaviour and to improve perceptions of safety, both during the day and at night.
We are improving safety & security in the following ways:
Bexleyheath BID have funded two police officers who are dedicated to the town centre.
We work closely with Bexleyheath Town Safe as they act as the “eyes and ears” for businesses, helping to reduce crime and assisting everyone in getting the most out of our security network.
Supporting the existing business crime co-ordinator to focus specifically on retail problems, regularly updating the database and running a retail/leisure security radio network to keep businesses abreast of immediate issues, coupled with regular security and safety based training.
Continuing to explore further funding opportunities through the Bexley Safer Partnership.
