Crime Prevention & Business Support
We provide financial support to the city centre Rangers, Night Marshals, Vulnerability Marshals and additional Police Officers.
We host and fund Swansea Against Business Crime partnership (SABC) that has clear objectives to reduce the impact of crime against businesses and their staff. SABC is accredited by the National Business Crime Reduction Partnership (NABCP) complementing our membership of Wales Against Business Crime (WABC) which we are already accredited by. SABC continues to move from strength to strength growing our radio network, working with partners to maintain Purple Flag status for Swansea, Best Bar None Scheme and implementing a new intelligence garnering platform called SentrySIS and have secured National Business Crime Reduction Partnership (NABCP) Accreditation.
Enhancing the appearance of the BID area
Enhancing the appearance of the trading and visitor environment remains a key priority for our levy paying businesses. We provide additional services over and above the Council’s statutory services.
We invest in the following initiatives to improve the overall appearance of the city centre:
Chewing gum removal
Responsive cleaning services for businesses
Graffiti removal from the private realm
Greening and environmental projects
Enhancing the visitor experience:
To encourage visitors to explore all areas of the BID area and spread footfall and spend, we support and negotiate numerous transportation offers. In addition, we support new activities and initiatives to welcome and support visitors to Swansea city centre.
