The aim of Safe and Secure Bath, the Bath BID’s Crime Reduction Partnership, is to prevent and deter crime and antisocial behaviour in the city centre. Safe and Secure Bath brings together night-time and daytime security under one partnership.

Safe and Secure Bath scheme has three key elements:

  • Bath BID Marshals in the city centre seven days a week.
  • A secure intranet system (DISC), allows businesses to receive information from the Avon and Somerset Police.
  • A radio link (Citilink) operation, connected to the Police, CCTV and each other.

If you have any ideas to make Bath a safer and better city, we would be delighted to hear from you.
