Our Security Team patrol the BID footprint 7 days a week

Victoria BID Security Team

Each day a team of four security officers, equipped with radios and body worn cameras, patrol the BID footprint dealing with low-level crime and anti-social behaviour (ASB)

  • Monthly joint operations have been established between the Metropolitan Police, Westminster City Council Inspectors and VBID Security to tackle anti-social behaviour
  • The BID Security officers collected intelligence which is passed on to the Metropolitan Police under our Information Sharing Agreement for counter-drug and illegal immigration operations

Crime Prevention Seminars & Materials

The BID works closely with Metropolitan Police (MPS) and British Transport Police (BTP) and hosts crime prevention surgeries in partnership.

  • Over the past year 1,200 crime prevention items have been distributed via BTP and MPS engagements in the area including anti-skimming card defenders and personal alarms.
  • 10 regular cycle safety events have also been held with BTP & MPS

Overt patrols

The Victoria BID supports high visibility uniformed patrols and multi-agency operations using specialist police and council units to combat crime trends and travelling criminal gangs.
