Beacon Security has recently partnered with the University of Sussex to offer a new Street Wise patrol scheme alongside support from University of Brighton and the Brighton Institute of Modern Music [BIMM].
Street marshals will work in teams of two patroling a dedicated area of Brighton every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday between 10pm and 4am during term time.
The security company behind the initiative is accredited by the Community Safety Accreditation Scheme (CSAS) and the scheme has approval from Sussex Police.
The marshals will patrol Lewes Road, The Level and London Road offering security advice and assistance to students and residents in these areas. It is hoped that the presence of marshals will create a supportive and reassuring environment for students in the city and will further help to strengthen community relationships by encourgaing responsible behaviour.
