Street Security Team
On Patrol in Richmond
The Be Richmond Street Security Team has become a familiar sight in Richmond town centre, particularly in key areas like George Street and Richmond Riverside.
The team comprises two experienced operatives who patrol the designated Richmond BID area from 4pm until midnight on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
The team’s main role is to deter low-level crime and anti-social behaviour by providing a visible on-street presence. Operatives are equipped with STRATA STREET DATA, an intelligent, dynamic, mobile app which records any crime and environmental issues and relays the information to appropriate organisations including the Metropolitan Police and Richmond Council.
The team also has an ambassadorial role in the community, including helping tourists and assisting the public with wayfinding and Richmond-related advice.
