Resolve

The safety and well-being of your business, your staff, and all those that use Croydon town centre is our number one priority at Croydon BID.

At Croydon BID, we are committed to putting your safety first.

Ensuring the safety and well-being of everyone in the town centre has always been high on our agenda but, in our experience and that of our members, the multitude of security issues currently facing the area has reached an unprecedented level.

Working with our partners including the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), British Transport Police (BTP), Croydon Council and other key agencies, we are committed to delivering projects and initiatives that aim to meet these challenges head on, reducing crime and anti-social behaviour while improving the feeling of safety for all those that live, work and visit our town centre.

Key initiatives include:

The Croydon BID Radio Link connects users across Croydon town centre with the Metropolitan Police, Street Rangers, and local authorities, bolstering safety for businesses and the local business community.
The CBCP leads various crime reduction initiatives in targeting offenders and enhancing security measures in Croydon town centre, fostering a safer environment through collaboration among 250 active businesses, the Metropolitan Police, and other agencies.
The Croydon BID Street Rangers provide over 160 weekly hours of uniformed patrolling, increased visibility, and reassurance to make Croydon town centre a safer and more welcoming environment.
In partnership with the Croydon Metropolitan Police Service, we combat business crime, including shoplifting and anti-social behaviour, through targeted operations and funding additional officers.
