To provide a safe and inviting environment for visitors, workers and residents to enjoy.
As well as tackling ASB and crime issues, the St Peters Quarter Rangers continue to work on helping to promote the area, liaising with visitors on a daily basis, providing support for businesses and highlighting the benefits and opportunities which exist through BID projects and initiatives. The Rangers wear a distinctive green uniform and carry body worn cameras.
St Peters Quarter businesses can benefit from joining the Storewatch Radio Scheme thanks to the funding secured in 2018 through the Police and Crime Commissioners Office.
The scheme enables businesses to report issues and to keep in contact with one another, the Rangers and other partners, thereby helping to make the area safe and inviting for all to enjoy.
St Peters Quarter BID regularly organises Safer Neighbourhood Days in partnership with the Derby City Police Safer Neighbourhood Team.
Safer Neighbourhood Days provide an opportunity for businesses to engage with the Safer Neighbourhood Team officers, discuss issues and concerns and receive relevant advice and updates.
The BID in partnership with Derby City Pubwatch and Derbyshire Constabulary, organised a Fraud Awareness Day for customers at banks and building societies across the BID area as part of its objective to provide a safe and inviting environment for visitors, workers and residents to enjoy.
Teams from a number of businesses including Nationwide, Lloyds, Barclays, Santander and Loughborough Building Society set up stands across their St Peters Quarter branches and offered advice to customers on fraud prevention and cybercrime. The St Peters Quarter Ranger team also distributed bag dipping bells and cables to the public.
The BID funded metal detecting wands for evening and night time economy businesses in the St Peters Quarter BID area as part of an initiative also involving Derby City Council, Derbyshire Constabulary and Pubwatch.
The St Peters Quarter BID plays an integral role in ensuring that Derby retains its Purple Flag Accreditation, working with partner organisations and businesses to ensure the effective management of the night time economy. For more information on Purple Flag, please click here.
